I am firmly of the opinion that this forum pretty accurately reflects the current character of Morrissey himself. So yes - it's trivial and banal, and generally filled with bitter and pointless sniping, hatred and general twatishness towards all-comers. We follow in our leader's glorious footsteps, and take our cue from True To You and other general interview boorishness of recent years.
Back in the days when Morrissey was expressing himself in a more eloquent and witty manner, and portraying the role of permanently broken-hearted lovesick loser who nevertheless had a touch of humour about him, I expect this place equally reflected his persona. Or maybe I am just misremembering. Anyway, that's my theory, and I'm sticking with it.
