I just googled 'dysfunctional family' and this came up. Seems to be pretty accurate:

What are 3 characteristics of a dysfunctional family system?

Power struggles, excessive criticism, conditional love, substance misuse, and excessive expectations are common characteristics of dysfunctional families. 

Sounds like my family and my Glastonbury family. Thank god for my training as a counselor. I could help but I can't be arsed  😉

Absolute mayhem. I have no idea what is happening but it's an almighty meltdown on all sides.

Jeez. That’s a massive dumpster fire. Glad I haven’t got involved.

Where in the Glasto forum is that?

My news is that I have tested positive for COVID after all this time. Must’ve picked it up at The Great Escape festival I was at last weekend. 

Hope you don't have it too badly! Get well soon.

When the politics thread is the most civil place to be, you know it's bad.

Okay now I've got to check this out...

Fucking hell. I've been on this site for about 10 years or so and have seen Neil do this kind of thing from time to time, but I wouldn't be surprised if this goes a bit further and he finally shuts it down. I know he deleted the Nick Cave thread the other day, which seemed a bit extreme for a couple of trolls but I've not been in there much lately due to not having Glasto tickets. Sad to see.

yeah, it is sad...there seems to be a bit of a bullying aspect towards Neil who is obviously strugggling, but at same time a bit of megalomania from Neil which doesn't help. Some people have set up an alternative discord site, and even a politics thread on there for the lols...but all seems a bit manic over there with gifs waving at you and stuff...a bit Glade compared to Leftfield.

I honestly don't know what discord is! I'm not in any rush to join something new so guess will see how this pans out. This and the Primavera threads (and Cave before it sadly went) are the only ones I've been visiting lately so I really had no idea all that was going on.

Thank you. I knew it would get me at some stage!

I’m not excusing Neil’s language but I think it’s important to remember how ill he was last year which might go some way to explaining this.

It was inevitable! Stay hydrated.

It seems like they are rattled…

The Tories are having a PR crisis...  No sure how they handle this...  There is next to fuck all the government can do about most of this...  nasty combination of Brexit, war in Ukraine and the bad decision's you all supported during the pandemic. 

And alas - Starmer still can't take advantage...

Last Thursday I tried to find it to chat about the new Cave film and was left scratching my head about what on earth had happened. That Cave thread had loads of pages and if there had ever been troll activity in the past I'd missed it. Seems very extreme to delete an entire thread just because of a bit of trolling - could the offensive posts not have been deleted instead? What a waste.

I've been on the forum for a similar time to ZMG, mostly dipping in around festival time, but the pandemic changed that and instead made it a vital place to catch up on daily news and helped get a sense of how other people were coping. I've stayed on because I've enjoyed the differing views of those who regularly post here and I would definitely miss it if Neil pulled the plug, I hope it doesn't come to that, especially if the alternative is wading through endless memes and gifs.
