Geez this forum is getting a bit heated, insults and accusations, condemnation of peoples opinions, etc, I'm starting to feel like I need to put a hard hat on to read it.

Hmmm...free speech..yep we're all entitled to, freedom to express our opinions - we should be able to express them as well, stating the facts on issue [provided they are correct] absolutely..go for it...informed debate - I love it, nothing better, but when it gets to the stage it seems to be getting on this forum, it starts getting a bit "sad".

Santa's coming soon, lets' try to be good girls and boys and we might get something nice this year [like a colour meridian gps .....I've been good santa, really I have..!!]

Now..I think I need to sit under a pyramid with some cyrstals and RELAX!....and think about what I can talk Al into get next for the cruiser....lol

let's all chill out abit...

Freedom of speech is a funi fing,

sometimes one should execise their freedom and not speak, othertimes get out there and just do it.

I know nuffin about Sex, Politics and Religeon and am an advocate of the great Australian tradition of not giving a "Chit".

Just want a new roof rack and towbar for my Pajero.

Whose shout next, I'll have a red wine please.

Mrs Al.
I agree also. Having been a member for over six months now I have watched as some have tried to hijack this forum for their own views and low betide he (or she for that matter) who has a differing opinion.
Every effort should be made to encourage ALL to participate in this forum. If this current trend continues we may find a smaller & smaller group of people participating for fear of receiving responces the like of those of recent times.
All who participate in this forum are entitled to there opinion. If you have differing options to those of some of the participants by all means make them but there is no need for the venom.

All the very best for xmas & the new year to ALL!This 4WD stuff is addictive,
time consuming & expensive.

I agree. We all have an opion and a point of view. Accept what others have to say. If you don't agree fine, thats your right but attack others simply because they have a different point of view. Remember they are viewing your comments from a different perspective and therefore may see a different picture.

Only 4 days left and then I am off to Gods Country (WA) - well thats my opinion any way.Everyone is entitled to have an opinion - just make sure that yours is correct.

Let's stick to trucks and camping and stuff on this forum ....... we all need to escape from time to time from the crud in the world and this forum helps us do that very well without the other stuff.

G'day Oskar, I'm only expressing my opinion, however if the site was restricted to trucks and camping gear stuff, it would be very boring. It is bad enough now with questions like "what tyre should I use or suspension types etc" As a long time reader we have seen these questions before but in recognition of the newer site readers, they have not and therefore their questions are bonefide.
To keep the interest up, I enjoy reading posts on other issues like the closing of the Otways etc. We need to be kept informed and as far as 4WDing issues go as that way we can better make an informed opinion.
It is sad when looking back on reflection that some of the earlier contributers no longer voice their opinions because of the ridicule they have recieved.ne cede malis

Wow - becoming more like the Ma we all know....

My advice is don't let peoples abuse worry you - if says more about the abusers problems with coping with differences. Difference of opinion is great because it brings diversity.

Advice number two:

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of bleep
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

..... elevated in your opinions .....woo hoo.... I must be up to 1 out of 10 now after all the bleep I gave you about looking like Mrs McGillacutty. LOL. I just noticed that the "shi." word got into the post in the Python song.
I reckon that some people are just sh.. stirrers and post in a hostile way as part of a game. I reckon that this site is fantastic and I hope David and Michelle get a lot of kudos and joy and happiness and ultimately money from the site.
I am gunna become a member by spending some money but my better half told me not to buy stuff before Santa comes because......he might bring me some stuff.

"I want to be a woman, I want to be called Loretta......" but I thought people would just think I'm nuts...which is pretty well right...lol

Oh those were the days.... My kids are 10, 5 and 3. My 10 year old recently came back from a party and they had been watching the Goodies just released on DVD... he laughed and laughed apparently..... I have this urge to go out and hire or buy all sorts of wacky stuff.. Monty Python, Flying High, Goodies, would like to get the Paul Hogan shows and Comedy Company stuff...... maybe a letter to Santa.

Lyn,

Duck is right we are trying to work out what the hell is happening out there. I guess it must be that the time of giving is comming so lets stick it to everyone in the ExplorOz forum and while we are at it lets attack the owners and creators of the site.

Can we all get over what ever the hell is going on and get back to the point.Regards

Hmmm, did I miss something or am I just becoming "inurred"??? Fellow forumites new and old, don't worry about it. Those of us who've been visiting for awhile have seen this sort of thing before and eventually (thankfully) it just goes away and those of us who just come here to have a natter, a laugh and maybe learn something can get on with it.

Soon to be a one income family for awhile and saving for our Kimberley trip next year so I don't think I'll be asking for anything too extravagant :-(((((. So organised we've got Matty's chrissy shopping done already! Greg hasn't asked for anything yet but since he just got a new car I should think not, LOL!
