    I doubt you will get much response here since people only want to do what is forbidden. :P

    Re:The political mudslinging thread

    this whole thing about not being allowed to go off topic anymore is really just extremely pathetic (not to mention hypocritical considering where it's coming from)

    if people take a conversation into a certain direction, then by all means let them... it's happened countless times before and no matter how hard you try you just won't be able to prevent this unless you wanna moderate the hell out of every conversation that goes on around here. Which would undoubtably piss a lot of people off.

    Re:The political mudslinging thread

    We had that happen before, and it got incredibly out of control. A bunch of members left, and others had bad blood for a long time. The alternate board was made as an alternative for that. There is not moderation going on there.

    Like here, for example:

    http://www.linuxjunior.org/yabbse/in...;threadid=6554

    We lost a few members there.

    Re:The political mudslinging thread

    If people aren't old enough for a healthy debate, I'm all for loosing them all.

    If you don't have a thick skin, you shouldn't be participating this kind of things anyway. There are times that I just let it go because I wasn't in the mood for a debate. I never visit that off topic forum because I think it was just lame.

    Problem is that the main objective of the forum is linux help. Although some of the people that have left were not "though skinned", they were contributors to the forum.

    Yes, every forum has its objectives. But then again, it's all about community as well. There are times where you will have some hippcups. There are times when you will have some fights. Everything in life is like that. When you get married, if there is no fight and disagreements, then your marriage will break soon since it's virtually boring for both of you. It's just the way life is.

    ONE of the reasons why LJR traffic has slow traffic is THAT. It's boring.
