Gotta say that's what I used to love most about RFD after the hot deals. It was wandering in to OT and reading some "low content" and LMAO. Made my transit commutes and summer slow downs just flyby.
These days they get closed so fast and only the really heated discussion that turn in to flame wars stay open I don't bother going there anymore.

Between that heavy handedness and the voting system RFD is headed In a bad direction
Exactly... I try my best to create interesting off topic material to keep RFD masses happy.
It doesn't work in Off topic anymore...
So I've branched off into Automotive, Food & Drink, and PErsonal Finance. My new top 3 forums. The Lexus IS300 stories have created a loyal following until its death...
And people do seem to enjoy my take on food & drink in that forum.

Why are there now two threads on the Khadr case, the original one, and another that was originally about an ex Nazi but has since been taken over by the same users bickering in the original thread.

Actually I was trying to point them to the Khadr thread multiple times but they keep on going. Mods havent taken any action yet so I guess its ok to respond.

Its 2-3 members who are venting their issues in other threads. They also infiltrated the other one which is now locked.

But it is you that perpetuate the threads, regardless what the topic originally was.

I think the productive discussion has ended. Everyone's positions have been made and I think the admins have enough information to make a decision on how they wish to proceed with the OT forums. I understand from Tom that if and when a decision is made, he will report back to everyone. Thanks for your input everyone.
