Those of you who are regular visitors to the PP chatroom may have noticed my recent absence. Or you may not have; I doubt my absence has been particularly conspicuous, especially given that a significant number of people - mainly WLs - who used to visit the chatroom on a regular basis now no longer do so, and some have withdrawn from all participation in PP, including the forums.
I suspect that the reason for these chatroom regulars disappearing is that in recent months the chatroom has turned into the wretched hive of trolling, misogyny and racism that PP's most strident critics have claimed (wrongly, at the time) that it always was. Regrettably I suspect that this incorrect criticism became a self-fulfilling prophecy. A small group of hard-core fuckwits (they know who they are) have infested the chatroom, and the decent people are gradually being driven out because they don't want to put up with the blatant and unabashed racism, sexism, nazism, anti-semeticism and general trolling and fuckwittery that the fuckwits carry on with on a nightly basis. The chatroom is no longer a pleasant place to be, and the people that I mainly used the chatroom to talk with don't use it any more, so the KKK-lite can have it for themselves, and carry on with their inane prattle to their heart's content.
