Blogs and internet forums

Well, I wrote a wee post the other day about different sword forums on the net and got some reaction.

Mainly positive from Schola Gladiatoria, although some issue was taken with me saying that perhaps SFI was a more scholarly site. Not so, what I actually said was that the "level of discussion" was perhaps not as scholarly as on SFI, particularly since one of the most active forums on SG forum is the pub......the thread LOL Catz (which is hilarious), springs to mind. Of course there are also more serious discussions also, with lots of useful info and reviews. I found it a little ironic though that while some members (for whatever reason) are highly critical of SFI, they didn't much appreciate any perceived criticism to their own forum. No criticism was intended, just wrote what I thought.

I have to remember that SG is rather proud of and hence, protective of their forum. Fair enough, I reckon. So, apologies to any SG forumites if I caused offence. I'd like to clear this up as I enjoy being a member of the forum and would like to keep posting there.


  1. oh, you'd have to do a lot more than that to really cause offence. Your stuff barely counts as flirting.

    You are quite correct that there is a high level of silliness in the pub, moreso than other fora. There is also a very high level of academic discussion and I think you were just reminded of that.

  2. Hi James,

    thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it. I checked your blog as well. Interesting and eclectic! I've added it to my bloglist. Cheers, Kevin.
