I am a member of several forums and have gained much knowledge and pleasure from them. My problem is that whatever the subject being discussed is, a fair percent of the members feel an overwhelming need to try and be funny. Usually failing miserably in the process.
In one recent post on a popular site the same 'funny' comment was made by three seperate people, while a fourth wrote in to express his sadness that others had beat him to it. As for the joke being repeated, I first heard it in infant school. How sad can you get?
Today on the same site there is a post concerning children and pornography and still people need to crack jokes.
Am I alone in finding this habit rude and annoying. By the way I am known for an excellent sense of humour, I just don't feel the need to wave it around 24x7
