Well in my opinion it is just the sad who need to join. And I dont mean sad in the a bit down kind of way, I mean sad in the I am pathetic and have no real friends kind of way.
Out of curiosity, I got on to a forum the other day and I found plenty of moving to the area, tell me about work, schools, etc. Well, sorry Scooby if you are looking for help from some lonely old git, sitting at home in the middle of the day, logged on to a forum, may be you should plan on staying in England; where at least you can find a bus to the shopping centre.
What I did discover, that may be helpful, is that it probably gives a good insight into the area you may be interested in the sense that you can see how many people are looking for work and the type of work, i.e. even washing pots, though I thought that this is what dishwashers were invented for. And, yes, if you want to know your chances, just look at the replies. Also look for local robberies (warning).
Forum users heres a tip; if you find yourself using the forum regularly, get out more, talk to real people and remember, if you are a self opinionated bore in real life, you definitely are more so in a forum.
An here is another good point, advertisers shouldnt bother trying to plug their business if, lets call them F.U. for short (forum users), are useless enough to be sitting at home gossiping as you can be sure they dont have a P.T.P.I.
Most F.U.s hide behind a made up name, yet, if you are local, everybody knows who you are anyway! For instance, Big Peter (made up name) every body knows you as Fat Peter the cowboy builder. Or Sexy Lady, we all know youre the local bike who has been round more times than a circus pony. Then there is F.U. Mr Car Sharing to Work, looking for an adult that has not managed to buy a car yet? You can see where he is coming from. Oh! That is unless F.U Car Share wants to be green (not).
Looking at another local forum, I am sure I recognised who it is that I shall just call F.U. from Fathoms. How many more times must he plug his quiz on Monday nights at 8.30 pm?
