Thats enough passion for today,
Di, i owe you one
I do agree. I think people are reluctant to say anything remotely negative about Adelaide for fear of the response from people. I used to use this site prior to moving here and there were always healthy debates which are really useful for those coming out and for those already here.
For Gawd's sake!!!!
I think a lot of people have forgotten what this forum is really about.
One person posts that the forum no longer offers some "entertainment value" and everyone goes into defence/argument/prat mode.
How about you go and give Squareman some support at the moment regarding his very sad news........ THIS is what the forum is about.
I see this thread has had a lot more views and posts than this one.............
BTW - not talking to any one specific.
I try to avoid the site now - i pop in to see if i can add anything or even help someone.
Im in the loving it brigade but also see the huge faults here - and i do mention them.
I accept oz as being a different country.
You can be passionate on here, but if someone doesnt like/appreciate/share your passion then you know youre just going to get shot down in flames and abused. Thats not healthy, especially when for alot of newbies/people this site is almost a lifeline for them.
I detest the people who come on here purely to start a fight or only appear once a vicious debate has started...sad spiteful people with no real lives who think its ok to abuse people on here - because theyre not face to face with that person.
Debate is good and healthy, advice is great, holding out the hand of friendship/help is wonderful...the rest of the narrow mindedness is vile.

Whilst I love a good passionate debate and banter and I can be sarcastic at times, (lets face it us poms do it best) this can all be achieved without being rude or personal and this is what we should we mindful of when we decide post on here.
This is a great site and has provide us with some invaluable advice and information along each step of our emigration process.
Lets keep it great.
Can I just say Di is indedd the wicked witch of the NE, in fact I would go as far as to say she is the Wicked witch of the whole of SA.
