    I love to see who's online and what they are looking at.Now i've found most in the general chat section love to reply or read to what i class as gossip threads.its got me thinking, WHY? We have some good fun threads,good advice threads, but nope the gossip seems to come tops.:confused:
    Any good reasons?

    theres less thinking involved in the gossip threads! thats not an insult to anyone but personally in the evenings i view or comment on the general section because im usually too tired to give good advice! :thumbup:

    the general section/gossip threads are an easy read. plus alot of them turn into arguments these days for some reason and i think everyone likes to read or reply to a little drama now and again!!

    i do lots of news threads though! are they gossip? in a way i suppose they are but i do try to make them interesting lol :lol:

    I class gossip as, nothing of real importance to anyone in general.but there has been a few threads lately that grabs ones attention but is neither here or there.If that makes sence.I can't give examples as i wouldn't want to offend anyone.:(
