But that's just it. You use "woke" world when actually it's just the world.
There's generally two sides to every story and the polarization in many issues seems to confirm that it's not just the world as you say, rather it’s just your worldview.

Not everyone believes in woke crap and if you genuinely believe this then you need to step out of your bubble or at least stop making such ridiculous proclamations.

Pretty obvious you lack enough reflection to detect any trace of Selbstüberhöhung (overestimation of self-esteem? – German is better sometimes) in your wish to avoid the least contact with the underbelly of humanity.
I suppose I could try with history: Romans vs. barbarians. Recent politics: Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables”. Perhaps Miss Piggy said it best, “rectitudinous, moi?”
Is it? Fancy that.

That is a lot of words isn't it?

And yet you seem awfully het up about this. There's an ignore function, if I bother you so much. Such drama.

Re: Warm beer or soggy cereal?

There should be a minimum number of posts by a new forum member before he or she can complain about the forum.

At any rate, this should be on Forum Support, shouldn't it?

Fair point. There's a reason I waited until now to return.
Fair enough – not that I’d noticed a significant absence/contribution

Why don’t you explain why you waited “so long”? Perhaps elucidate why you seem to wade in to replies to comments of RufusB which s/he ignores?

My mistake – RufusB is in fact alive and well, at least physically – not that we gain much from this response. Miss Piggy knew how to deal with questions like this but not really PC anymore...

I'd have thought it was obvious why the wait, but sure happy to explain.

The forum had become a bit of a toxic mess, so I left. Now there is the promise of a new beginning so I came back. If I don't like it, I will leave again.

Isn't life simple?

As regards RufusB, I am quite sure it is coincidence, or we're both bonkers woke eco-leftards, or something.

Not to put a too fine a point on it – but your “32” posts and “a bit of a toxic mess” imply history/agenda. However, “…we're both bonkers woke eco-leftards, or something….” explains everything

I hope a parliamentary truth commission on internet forums will help us get this shit sorted but think taking a long walk on a short... you know

Honestly, if you've been on the forum for more than a year, it shouldn't be rocket science to figure out my previous incarnation.

Who doesn't have an agenda? Whose agenda is not having a place they enjoy coming and participating in?

So I guess you got me bang to rights, chief.

You'd have a lot more room in your head. I'm not even paying rent!

Seriously, chill a bit.

Not paying rent and hogging my attention – you are a tough act to follow…
good luck, good night and take your own advice
