If You Don't Like A Thread

Posted 25 April 2003 - 05:17 PM

DON'T LOOK IN IT.


I don't see what's wrong with talking about politics or the world.

The thread I started was one of the quickest to grow recently, so obviously people wanted to say something about it.

I don't think this place should be moderated according to what one moderator (admin, whatever) wants to talk about.


Go ahead, lock this one too.

No, its the simple fact that you could have posted in the War Thread regarding your explination of you being patriotic or not.
And don't say it had nothing to do with the war. Use logic to post. Dont just make a new thread for the hell of it.

It was not about the war at first, but that's where it ended up.

The war thread is dead.

Actually from your first post in that thread, any right thinking person might see it to be a new volley of 'War Thread' for those to lazy to drill down to it's parent.

i don't think the original post was meant to become a new war thread, but so what if it is? the old one died, obviously we still have things to talk about, there's nothing wrong with honest discussion, and what kind of NORMAL person would resent conversation about the war, when it affects every aspect of our lives?

i agree with gneato. if you don't like a thread, fine, ignore it. don't ruin it for the rest of us.

i don't get to close the threads about sports or actresses or any of the other topics you hormone-driven boys bring up :P

i closed it because we have that war thread for a reason. It should have gone there, and the posts that followed after it only proved to me that thats where it should have gone.

and to let everyone know, im currently thinking of a new rule for all these sports thread, cause its getting out of hand, and everytime someone doesnt like a sport they go and bash it instead of staying out.

Please make one of each of the following threads:

War thread
Stupid joke thread
Car thread
Girl thread
Capty is fancy thread
Canada/US debate thread
Music thread


That should do it. Who in their right mind would want any more threads? Any new threads remotely related to any of the above will be locked.

I do not know if it was done, and I will attempt to do it in just a moment, but... we can merge entire threads so that these things don't happen all the time, so... I'm gonna merge the thread that was closed, and the war thread together...

I like the idea of having the 'standarized' threads.

Ooooh, ok... I'm slow, I see the new forums nestled nicely at the top... nice :)

The titles need a little work, but cool concept!
