    I'm a member of few various forums on a variety of Interests, but I dont know one other person in my life who posts on forums. When I tell people what I've read/heard on bluemoon etc I feel kind of sad, not embarrassed as such, just kinda like they think what a geek. And I am i suppose a self confessed nerd, I'm definitely not cool, so is it a bit sad?

    Of course it is. I generally find that people who have high post counts on forums tend to be sad fuckwits who need to get out more.

    There was a time when it would probably have been viewed as a bit weird but it's just like any other social media really. I probably wouldn't tell people my posting name but I wouldn't be ashamed to say I visit the site and post.

    Why is it sad? Its just a different way to stay in touch, communicate, socialise and educate. Its a way to bring like minded people together.

    Not if you've got nobody else to talk too.

    I'm glad most of my social media activity has been on forums instead of on places like Twitter where it's all public and under your own name.
     
  10. Not as sad as the tossers on other social media sites constantly posting pictures of their meals and selfies with bunny ears etc
