Are people still visiting planks?

I'd rather listen to Joe Duffy talk about his aches and pains than visit that virtual soggy biscuit of a forum.

Personally I don't anyway....mainly due to timewise,and there's no decent content creation on it (any decent breaking news/current affairs it's a minimum of 12 hours behind anywhere else)


It's a bunch of ould lads,who have had the craic sucked outta em and couldn't imagine enjoying spending time offline with em,why would I spend time online with em??


Like I see the ould lads (or folks me own age) about where I live,any time ya meet em for a chat etc,you'd nearly always have a laugh and joke,so it's not age is the problem,just an utter deficit of personalities,tik tok comment sections are a better laugh tbh

Nope, after about 15 years I finally walked away and don't miss the constant gaslighting and trolling. I don't go there at all unless someone posts a link here. It was a great place once but is now completely irrelevant. I'd love to see a graph of their numbers overt the years. They've gone the way of Myspace and Bebo

Boards posters are becoming more perfect candidates for Liveline callers, or the more woke specimens guests on Sean Moncreiff on Newstalk.

Funny thing is I’ve seen a few posts calling them a 100% troll etc… by the resident trolls, that were quickly deleted. I can only imagine how many reported posts that one poster is generating. I wouldn’t expect them to last long, the extra extra extra extra extra large one.
:lol: :lol: Did I call it or what? There was nothing wrong with their posts, it was their opinions that upset people.

So nothing wrong with his posts other than being against this woke agenda, and they as much as admit this. Why would anyone want anything to do with that place?

Allthough planks is full of the woke, the wokism thread shows otherwise if you go by posts that are thanked, it's all the ones taking the piss that have lots of thanks, the ones defending it barely get any.

Then again it could be they stay away from that, just check out the "Atheism" thread, just a bashing of Christianity and wanking over Islam...

I still post on boards in response to the rabid pro refugee, rabid green, pro fg/ff posters.
I just can't let some of the shyte slide, although I gave up responding to some of the "war and peace" type posters.

But I have noticed less and less of the old posters that fought the fight for so long.
It is so obvious that there are now planted posters on there doing the bidding of certain NGOs, certain government departments like health and certain political parties especially the greens.
The main mod in current affairs has to be multiple people at this stage because there is no way in hell it is one person.

I originally joined boards to get information and discuss travel topics, aviation, some sport and then wandered into discussing accommodation and eventually politics.
Of course the politics forum was taken over by people who deemed most of us beneath them so we ended up with Politics Cafe which latterly became a joke.
Anyone remember your one Scofflaw in Politics, wouldn't have a bad word said about ff?

Current Affairs now is a bigger joke.
Every thread begins with a banned list FFS.
There is no longer any fun in After Hours.
Hell the Soccer forum is now deserted as well.

Agree with all the above JMayo, this was more or less my original reason to join boards. Just want to take this opertunity to apologise to you for calling you a Nazi in the other thread, was wrong and can't delete it now. Was still pissed over the Bishop Brennan incident. Apologies and welcome aboard.

I don't care about bashing religion, I would probably reluctantly describe myself as an "Athiest" (hate that word...) just so long as it's even across the board.

When you have in the "hazards of belief" thread uncountable posts about priests molesting boys ... fair enough it's a stain in our history.
But then any kind of islamic attack and there is nothing, crickets, if I post it as a hazard - which it CLEARLY is ... it gets 0 thanks and people just jumping in to DEFEND it ...


F*CK that!!

Absolutely nothing! But someone took issue with you slagging off Zelinsky and Biden as war mongers, which I took issue with, as I think the same as you on that statement that Biden and Zelinsky are in fact war mongers.

F*CK that!!
1,000% agreed!!!!!

Channel 4 are currently airing a "comedy" (yeah right!) about an evangelical family who are Jehova's Witnesses on steroids and how their teenaghe kids adapt.

Will they embrase their usual drive for equality and take the piss out of an Islamic family who make their daughtewr wear a hijab when she wants to dress as Taylor Swift... with hilarious consequences ?

Will they fck as like!!!!
