We know everything!

We know everything!
I was just looking down through the forum and saw that there were no posts for over a week anywhere.

Some of our sections have not had a post in over a year!

No questions, no advice.

It is now official, we must know everything about everything!

Maybe everyone is just quietly getting on with their preps MB, or just using this great archive to focus on what we need to do.

Goodness Pete, you just joined in 2017 and we had just barely gotten rid of the maniac crew by then.

If you are going into the archives for information half of that stuff was issued by two or three lunatics that have been banned as trolls by the entire internet!

Never take survival advice from someone that can not grow a tomato plant, requires surgery to repair damage done themselves by cocking a crossbow, or lives on benefits in a council flat and weighs more than 25 stone.

RE: We know everything!
I feel almost miffed! I was quietly getting on with things; growing, bottling, preserving and getting some extra water storage sorted out. At least I don't qualify under any of MB's above criteria!
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

That’s a good one MB, i always question any “advice”, does it make sense, is it relevant and would it work for me, i usually check the profile of the person posting then to see if they’re still using the forum, i agree some posts are suspect and some could be dangerous.

If only it was so. I've imparted all I could think of and built up the site as much as I could. All I'm really doing is sorting the file areas and adding as much as I can.

Always happy if people have contributions they want to make.

RE: We know everything!
I often wonder where members have gone or ended up.....do they see no further relevance in prepping ? or have become bored with it all ...or no longer feel the need ....or they have gleaned enough knowledge and have all the preps they need and are fully prepared and all bases covered....i suppose all of the above may well apply .....but it is and remains a pleasure to talk to like minded souls that stick around and still participate .....even when we get pissed with one another now and then.

RE: We know everything!
Yes SS i also wonder where some of the old contributors have gone, some who have made hundreds of posts.

I know some people were rather “imaginative” in their posts, and if you find a post that is obviously BS, it just might have one small thing that is relevant to our needs. I never take any post as gospel and will always find other opinions from different sources.

I find any replies to my posts constructive, so if/when i am incorrect please let me know this is why i joined the forum. You never stop learning in life.
