Totally agreed. UK & Europe would be great. This site really is 'America Top Secret' first and foremost. And there's only so much American's bitching
about things I can take on any given day.
That's not to say I don't enjoy the US related content, a LOT of sheet goes down there without a doubt. Some of it is good to read about. But even on
a good day there is usually only 1 decent international story vs 9 American stories on the current topics list.
When you feel you can't really contribute to 80% of the topics on the Recent Posts page, the site loses its interest.
Exactly my feelings, mostly from the last fortnight, but it's not the first time.
There ARE sometimes interesting, fundamental and popular threads that originate from UK/europe, but it'd be good to know there's a spot where the
focus can be primarily on that, and in theory the majority of posters being from those regions, stories that really affect me/us on this side of the
pond. I'd drop into that kind of board on a daily basis.
I used to love the aliens forum, but now, it's just sensationalist headlines, 1 in 100 posts are actually intelligent reading, no-one ever updates
their first post despite a debunking or clear answer in the first reply, and like national representatives at a sporting event, the same old opinions
speak out under every circumstance, someone believes its flares, someone thinks its lanterns, the next aliens, the next a government coverup... It's
become so cliché in itself and 'read it all before' it's just not worth the time.
That may seem off-topic, but my point is the fact my old favorite has pretty much died a death, I'd love a new favorite, something like UK/Europe
related issues would certainly grab my interest and could be useful (for folk like me) - I do love UK/Europe current affairs far more than American
ones, I must admit.
