    What's happening to the BKF? The threads on 'hive kicked over' and 'I quit now ...' and the one on No more hive thefts (which I both can't find right now and never really want to see again) are extraordinary. I find myself visiting less and less ...

    It's been like that for ages and has got worse since Pete the moderator got tired of trying to put some order in the place.
    I actually find that finman's posts are amongst the few where you can pick up something useful.

    Next time I find a few cells of chalkbrood I will know to blame it on my local gamekeeper.

    I'm in awe of Pete ... he must be able to multi-task ... moderate and chat (a lot) on the 'phone

    Gavin? Surely not?

    To be honest I've got several of the most obvious numpties on that forum on my ignore list ... it makes for a much more pleasant viewing experience.

    The problem is though, as soon as anyone makes a post of any kind, up they pop
    It's not banter it's aggressive, racist, homophobic , the whole spectrum, and that all emanates from just one keyboard

    In this particular case he is to beekeeping what Adolf H was to art

    I wrongly thought it would be better after the neonic spamfest but its actually gone downhill since. Some of the posters are the most pompous shower I've ever come across.

    So easy to start wars on fora! I find myself contributing less and less. I try to ignore the self appointed gurus but occasionally I retaliate ,in fact I've just done so(against my better judgement)on the BKF.
    It has got to the point where experienced,helpful Beekeepers no longer respond to questions from novices as any advice given is gleefully pounced on by the "I know better than you" crowd. .
    Sad really but some of these people must live at the keyboard?
    God only knows when they look to their bees.
