Since when have you been part of the SE23 family? As I recall you live on the other side of the great postcode divide. Honor Oak is an integral part of SE23.Robin Orton wrote:Similarly with SE23; it would be good if Honor Oakers could declare UDI. They are ethnically quite different from us on this side of the Hill, even though they may share much of our DNA (I believe interbreeding is thought to be possible.)

I belong to Forest Hill and SE23. I occasionally visit neighbouring areas and occasionally contribute to their forums.Kirkdale Boy wrote:Michael, so what family do you wish to belong ? Forest Hill/SE23 or STF, as I believe you live in FH.
STF is the new kid on the block. Only 7 years old squeezing in between the venerable SE23 & VN. James (the ex-Admin of VN) wanted to cover the uncovered communities but when we appeared he graciously didn't actively pursue the SE26 patch. I guess that's why, despite requests, I've declined to offer a VN alternative. Yep don't snitch the Sarf London Cartel to the monopolies commission ...Robin Orton wrote:I hadn't realised that Virtual Norwood was seeking Lebensraum in our neck of the woods. Which forum is the older, theirs or ours?
Is the usage of local forums rising or falling?
I've seen your South Norwood so I'll raise you a Thamesmead that can only be trumped by a Plaistow council estate.Pantwetter wrote:I don't think people can or should try to spread their tentacles too far. That's the beauty of a forum community thats geographically singing from the same hymn sheet, like STF.
Virtual Norwood champions itself on being a forum for Penge, Anerley, South Norwood, West Norwood, Sydenham and Crystal Palace. The latter being the only one that people seem to be concerned about.
Well, apart from Sydenham (used to live in Silverdale moons back) I wouldn't want to concern myself with the other areas anyway. If BBW thinks Catford is bad, he should try South Norwood. He'd have a seizure. And Anerley? He'd flatline....

londheart wrote:mikecg has reminded me (I haven't visited this forum for a while) that we really don't want a forum for Penge quite like this one! When you look at my 'Ban kettling' thread, for example, it's quite obvious that there is a conservative troll squad waiting to pounce, as far as STF is concerned.
There you go again!Annie wrote: Tsk.
Why have you come on here then?
Again, a question which doesn't necessarily deserve an answer, but I am in the Penge ward, and the well-meaning folks behind the Penge online forum idea profess to cover it.Annie wrote:But what I don't understand is that you are "located in Beckenham" so why are you bothering to post on Sydenham-or even interested in a Penge forum?
I think it's very boring for occasional visitors to this forum to keep having to hear 'how it seems' to the same few overbearing, predictable trolls. Get a life!Annie wrote: It seems to me that you come on here to "wind" people up
More local daytime council provision for trolls (to keep them out of mischief) springs to mind.Annie wrote: P.s I do not require an answer.
