Welcome to 7Cynics! This site is what happens when seven cynical people get together and decide to start a website. An opportunity to vent their frustrations on the world, and explain to the world how things should be done. The cynics are from all walks of life, but all professionals in their field, and for the most part, sick of all the idiots they are working with. You may not like it, but you don’t have to. This is the Internet and your web browser probably has a little X in the top right hand corner you can click to get out of here. However among the rants, moaning and bitching it’s possible there may be some snippet of information you might find useful. Enjoy!

There is no topic to this website. It is about everything and nothing. It is about exactly what we want it to be. Our writers are programmers, web designers, IT experts, pilots, snowboarders, travellers, journalists, lounge room political commentators or a combination of all of the above. Mostly this is a chance for us to write about things we are passionate about, and in many cases provide an alternative point of view. We hope you enjoy your stay.
