    I don't often look at this site as it appears to be more of a chat line,than a site used to share experiences and gather information the posting about the dog fouling is somewhat typical.

    If people have nothing better to post than look at the dog mess perhaps they should start a site just to deal with this subject?

    We are dog owners who pick up after our dog and she causes absolutely no problems to anyone in fact I carnt remember the last time she sat on the next door pitch drinking and talking loudly until 2-00 in the morning keeping others around them awake.

    I don't remember when she last left litter all over the beach and campsite and let's her kids run wild in and out of other peoples areas swearing and blinding whilst her parents get slowly drunk all day.

    Perhaps we could share our experiences of good and bad camp sites and places to visit,the best routes to destinations, instead of just posting stories about dog pooh

    Yes there is quite a lot of crap (not always from a dogs bum) on here and also a lot of informative threads that help others learn new things.
    It can't possibly please everyone all of the time but the title usually gives an idea of the content in the thread.

    Or, perhaps, if some motorhomers stopped refusing to clean up after their dogs then the subject would not arise as it would no longer be relevant :)

    Perhaps there should be a shite site, or does that still exist on the 'dark side'?

    If, as you suggest, the forums are confined to motorhome related item only then the forum would die within weeks.

    You maybe havent realised, as you posted this thread in 'motorhome chat', there are many sub forums for different subjects within the motorhomefun website.

    This thread may have been better suited to the 'U shaped lounge' where the topics are anything EXCEPT motorhome related items.

    You come on complaining about people talking about dog mess then proceed to talk about dog mess ?

    Have you considered starting a forum to deal with that subject ?

    I find that if a thread is titled "dog pooh" I have a choice to click or not to click.

    I also read all motorhome related posts, so post away.

    Hang on am I going mad (don't answer)

    You started a thread complaining about dogs mess threads only to then go on about dogs mess.

    Time for a beer I reckon.

    :):)There are a few threads that do keep cropping up because they bother a lot of us. I'm sure that if you looked at the site regularly your opinion would change. There are loads of really useful posts and when a funster is in trouble it never ceases to amaze me how many people come to the rescue with offers of help, some travel miles to help one another. There have been some tragedies as well and the outpourings of genuine concern are incredible. Give us a chance before you base your opinion on one or two threads. You don't have to even read those.

    ukcampsite already does this

    You just did

    Trick is to just ignore subjects / threads that don't interest you.

    It seems you've been unlucky in the threads you've read @Huddersfield123 , there's lots of really useful information & advice if you carefully choose the bits you want to read. Maybe, like me, you could just ignore the threads with titles you're not interested in, and pick the ones you are?
    Just as an example, just a very few of the very many questions I've had help with in the 18 months I've been a member:
    • broken down fridge while on Anglesey
    • excellent deal on a dash-cam (organised by a MHF member)
    • parking sites (website run by a MHF member)
    • introduced to BritStops
    • set up with a house/pet sitting holiday
    • advice on shorter MHs
    • what the "UP" function on my MH is and when I should use it
    • good sites in specific areas
    • travelling abroad
    • preventing &/or getting rid of mice etc
    • preventing damp
    • many many electrickery questions
    • insurance, full-timing, MH cleaning inside & out, solar power, one-pot cooking, rallies & meets ..... etc etc etc
    You'll also find that there's lots of personal help & support offered by Funsters: eg items being delivered on behalf of other Funsters, experienced Funsters fixing other people's broken down bits at meets and sites, offers of drive-space for MH & driver when partner in hospital, etc etc etc

    And then there's the jokes, quizzes and banter that you don't seem to want - that's fine, no problem there! Check out the Forum Home page for more ideas and you'll see that among the fun of FUN, there is a huge amount of constructive stuff going on.
    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/

    Try another visit, have a good look around; it's a nice place to be.

    I cant recall how much brilliant advice I've had since joining this forum not long ago..

    If I read a thread that doesn't interest me I have the choice to reply or not....

    We simply cant avoid certain subjects like dog s hite or Aframes but just ignore them if they are of no interest.

    Dog threads I ignore as they dont concern me till a dog s hites near me. A frame threads I cant resist though as its just too much FUN...............:D:D:D

    Oh come on guys - this thread is already boring. If you really want to talk about dog crap (again) then let's get motivated................................ I think that dogs should be banned from all campsites as all they do is poo and bark and usually do it on their neighbours pitch! Bloody pests. And..... most dog keepers don't pick up. :)
