I was on here many years ago then disappeared off to the wonderful world of Facebook..... joined the IM journey group when doing my first LD tri in 2014... was fun for a while but just recently its got a bit weird... some chap (who I presume is jorgan Smile) said that it was pretty good back here now so has enticed me back...

Don't believe that Mr Organ fellow.

It's crap here. There's no biff whatsoever. People are boringly nice and unashamedly helpful.

It is really sad what is going on the FB Ironman journey site. I am in pretty good shape now, but before getting into Triathlon I had become a little overweight, so seeing some of the "fat shaming" comments are hurtful, even if they are not directed towards me. People getting into triathlon or any activity that helps them to become fitter and leaner should be applauded, not ridiculed.

At the rate people are leaving, only the trolls will be left.

There is a place for both FB and Tritalk

I do hope that Jorgan, EJC, TriSam and others are genuine, as I tend to value their advice, so far seems to be working well for me, unless I can blame one of them for my knee injury

I think I lasted about 48hrs on that site then realised what a grim place it was and left, never to return.

Very Happy Some of the specific event sites can be good.

The various parkrun discussion groups are also epic in their repetition of nauseating arguments. The parkrun tourist group in particular is just a world of backdoor bragging.

48hrs?? I think I lasted less than 2 hrs.

there are a number of similar FB groups. I joined a FB motorhome one (been motorhoming for about 12 years) and couldn't believe how ignorant or stupid some posters were.

there are fools and idiots everywhere - this forum is completely sane by comparison! long may it remain so.
