    I don't think it matters too much on this small forum if threads go off topic so long as they quickly return back on topic..

    Ken isn't really super hot on that...it's just when a topic starts about one thing, and morphs into something completely different which causes a problem..
    The problem with people just reading on a small forum likes this , is that nothing gets updated, and so we're reading the same threads day after day...

    For me, lots of threads are USA centric , so I can only read and learn , I have little or nothing to add to the discussion

    Another thing I found out, from being involved with 5 forums currently, some members don't go to the first posting, by the OP, and get the original question or info. The thread gets to long, as in pages, and people don't want to read all of the postings. I can understand that.

    That's true @Cody Fousnaugh especially if it's pages and pages long or started awhile ago.

    On some of those I do a quick scan to see if I replied to it earlier but I seldom read through too many replies just to even see if what I say has been said already.

    Same with the joke or image type threads....don't always check to see of its already been posted.

    I will do the same thing...….check to see if I already posted to it. I don't want to repeat a posting.

    I cannot even give my old blood; they turn me away due to hypertension!

    Is there anything that can be done to change that? While we can't change the things that people are familiar with, is there anything that can be done that would make you feel more comfortable sharing the things that you are familiar with? I don't think that people are so much uninterested in anything from the UK or EU, or elsewhere, but that they may not have as much to contribute to it - and vice versa, as you suggest. But I don't like anyone feeling left out.

    With this, I could picture myself being the old dog of the household, stretching and rolling sideways while being stroked.........:)

    I'm practically surrounded by Canada here in Maine. No part of the state is more than a hundred miles from the border. When I'm at our land up north, my cell phone keeps pinging a Canadian tower and they try to charge me for roaming, and pretty much every radio program is in French, other than CBC, which is what we generally listen to.

    To liven things up a bit, I just started an OP in Reminiscing, which is surely what led me to do so, about a firerarm which was offered for sale in the U.S. in the early 1960s.

    Sure to provoke both the gun fancier as well as the gun hater.
