I believe I may not be the only one here to think they are useless.

Why is there a box for Irish, but not Dutch? Where is the Yorkshire option?

It seems random and pointless

The bloody things even go as far as wanting to know what you get up to in the bedroom and with whom.  Fucking nosey bastards. 

I give them random carp back and my default defence is that I am entitled to identify as anything I want and to change how I identify whenever I wish. B|

I think we need one here as a condition of membership so that spunko can monitor how diverse and vibrant the forum is and provide that information to google.

I don't think it is very diverse here. If we all met up, people would assume we are related.:CryBaby:

It's a free world Frank, or so we are told.  

Indeed, so this is the new me.  I do hope that no-one will think I am giving myself undeserved airs and graces by identifying as the 2.8 litre Ghia.

Perhaps we need more variety Swissy?

I don't know about "need". This place meets a genuine need of being able to say what you want/think without censorship, I applaud this.

However what some people think is fairly unpleasant, this limits the likely variety in the membership. Would you join here, if you were off-white or Muslim?

It is what it is.....

I would be extremely surprised if there is anyone off-white on here(apart from Frank's new persona) , and even more surprised if there are any Muslims apart from listening bots from IS strategy centres (if they have such things)

Oh I don't know.  I understand that GCHQ have a strong diversity policy.  Plenty watching everything you write. :)

a good number of women, despite a bit of misogyny at times.

Yeah both genders present here at least. Feel sorry for any poor sods at GCHQ monitoring my drivel. Imagine if they are monitoring Pinny? They'd be carting them away to be sectioned regularly xD

I also would be amazed if there were any muslims here, and I am really not interested in hearing from them anyway, but I don't see why anyone who just wasn't white would feel uncomfortable here or feel the need to flag up their ethnicity.

On ToP there was Ken Ichikawa, the madcap accountant who ran a chip shop, worked on the lighting on a porn set as a favour, and went on unfeasibly risky and usually disastrous motorcycle expeditions.  He happened to be from Hong Kong and I don't think this was ever remarked on even once.  There were so many mad things about that bloke why would you pick up on his ethnicity?

Ken mentioned his Chineseness! He was a hoot, but I don't want dinner with him.

I'd have thought he'd be a great laugh, anecdotes a plenty of his many adventures.  There is a man who has led a rich and colourful life and never lets the fact that he has failed at pretty much everything stop him trying the next thing with optimism.  He's the sort of bloke who ends up a billionaire because eventually he must strike it lucky by sheer persistence.

Some interesting comments. I do occasionally go to a music (guitar) based forum, based in USA, some Euro people and Brits. I don't think there's anyone black on it, even though I know black people can be musicians.
