I have not met with one single punter bar one who has heard of this forum or any other.
Or maybe they are just saying that?
One guy said to me he was off the forums but didn't like to reveal who he was. Set my mind racing overtime lol.
When you guys go to a lady do you ever reveal who you are on here?
Unless the WG posted on a punting forum i dont say who i am, i dont see the point. I do mention the forums sometimes and most WGs havent the slightest clue what i am on about or are convincing liars.
I have also spread the word at parties to numerous punters over the years some who have later joined but many were unaware such forums existed.
I would guess and obviously its a complete guess because there is no way of knowing for sure, that a small percentage of punters are either members of forums or read them, 10-20% at best. I simply take this from those i have met at parties who might or might not be representative of the whole. There are still punters with no net access about, who punt as i used to using their local paper. I think more Brit WGs know about forums than EE WGs who i often punt with, of course if they cant read or hardly speak the lingo its hardly surprising.
I appreciate this was me being dense but i used to read FRs on auto-censored for years in ignorance of there being a forum, it was and is called Message Board and i never bothered clicking on it, only interested in the FR section. I was amazed to be told by a punter that it was a forum.
