Just found this thread…. I too was (still am?) a member of BB, but I agree that there are a lot of up their own arse types there. I once asked a question about a type of blade which is no longer legal in the UK… just a question mind, nothing sinister. F**k me, you would have thought my name was Bin Laden! I was threatened with banishment, and when I tried to defend myself with a simple explanation, but that only inflamed the response from the mods and some of the arse licking members!!! Talk about PC gone mad, yes they are a bunch of scared little kids running around trying to impress each other with their knowledge of the law and how goody goody they can be. Talk about spineless! Some of the topics of conversation have to be seen to be believed!
There is a core of members who must spend most of their waking lives on the forum, in fact it’s a wonder they have time to even make a bloody knife, as they spend all their time chatting like little girls in the school yard! Apparently, the word “switchblade” is banned from BB (but I noticed that many of the popular girls can get away with much worse…) TOSSERS!
It’s a shame when what could be a useful and informative web site like the BB (and it is) is so “clicky” that you have to become a complete arse licking “popular girl” else you will get your eyes scratched out for even daring to sit at the wrong table when you drink your milk!
The BB say that they are a friendly bunch, well that is true if you say/agree/arse lick/fit-in…. but if you don’t or can’t, well they show their true colours… just a bunch of back patting w**kers. I bet they are the sort who tell their kids there is no such thing as a fail mark, or that comming last is just as important as comming first!
Lastly, yes I am British, but not particularly proud of it. I am an expat, moved away because I couldn’t stand to see what the country has become. Awash with immigrants all wanting to bring their own laws, their own rules… and then what, you turn and look around you and you have a bunch of complete yellow bellied fools running the show, and even guys who share the same interests as “you” do, are afraid to say or do anything which may upset someone if it isn’t deemed PC enough! I’m of a generation where I remember unions, freedom of speech, the right to stand up for yourself…
My heart bleeds… my Grandparents went through hell so that they and future generations of folk didn’t have to put up with this Nazi style censorship, or indeed having the fear of being over run by foreigners in their own country.
At least the Americans (most of them) still have the guts to stand up for their rights, their freedom of speech etc…… that all I have to say really.
