  • Dude...let it go.

    Congratulations if you can make what you say works work.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

                Given how many folks are in fire and how much discussion happens around the kitchen table, I would expect a lot more online forums for the industry. This one is dead. The ones at firefighternation are comatose. I am sure there are plenty of local facebook groups etc., but there doesn't seem to be a robust online forum these days.

                • I suspect you'd find the same thing in other areas. The railroad forums I'm on have a very small group that regularly participates.

                  On the other hand, the live cams of various trainwatching spots seem to have no end of participants some days.

                  I blame a cyclical "we've talked about that already." After a while, it seems like no one can find anything new to discuss. Then things get quiet, until someone new brings up such a topic. If they don't get hammered with "do a search - we've already beaten that to death" responses, some discussion will often follow. Or not.

                  Of course, if something controversial pops up, well, get out the popcorn!

                  • Add to that the so easily butt hurt and forums tend to be old fashioned.

                        Or the old guys at the fire station.

                            You couldn't fight over the TV then because you were too busy feeding the horses and mucking out the stalls!!

                              Like a really long driveway as you slowly realize that someone is going to have to rack all that supply line.....

                                Well with your tone and sarcasm, why would I rush to reply?? And like you said, there's hardly anyone here anymore.
                                BTW, there's a BIG difference between "butt hurt" and not taking crap...
