Asking whether forums have had their day on an active forum is a bit like going to Old Trafford on a Saturday afternoon and asking people if football is finished. Nah, I'm sure we're all gong to be here a while yet :wink:

Ha, I get your point & hope you're right. But I think it's more like going to a half empty stadium where most people are too busy having tedious arguments about stuff all and most of the folk who are there to watch the game are bored of it and have decided to stay at home & watch the game in peace.

Man, IRC is dead! Only complete and utter weirdos would log in for that now. Just look at the state of the IRC for this forum!

How can the metaphorical people be both at the game and have chosen to stay at home and watch on tv?

They sliced themselves in two because they were bored of pedants.

Great, see you on there on Sunday.

No better place in the world to talk about hideous 8 bit games, wife beaters and Jimmy Saville.
