I thought this would be a serious bridge forum but all I have come across is a bunch of palookas.

Don't call me, I'll call you.

we created the bridge forum as place to discuss bridge relating to australia.
i've logged onto bridgebase a few times and think the internet is great for bridge (as well as chess, poker, etc.)
a forum to connect up the bridge community in australia i think is useful (and worth the space on the server here).

however, we've only just started tapping into this online community
so i guess we have to be patient until we attract other bridge players, etc.
this may spark more serious discussion (or it may not!)

also, some posts can sound a bit rude or cheeky in a forum such as this (and on the internet in general) simply because the internet doesn't capture sarcasm well.

in short, i would see how things pan out (after we've been going a bit longer and got the word out) and don't worry about the cheeky posts!

You can't add a forum to a server and expect 100s of bridge enthusiasts everywhere from Darwin to the 'Loo to start using it inside of 2 weeks. You need to spread the word in other forums, newsletters, etc before you reach the critical mass of regulars.

Although I agree with Shaun, Bruce did come over a bit on the rude side of the cheeky/rude continuum. The sarcasm definitely had an air of arrogance and I certainly won't be mourning his departure.
