This is funny, coming from a guy that runs a forum/chatroom that is full of posts that have sexual innuendo's and people gossiping that certain people should "hook up" amongst other things
There'd be plenty of things to talk about if people were willing to actually have a discussion instead of running away to other forums just because things don't go there way. Or if people actually kept a level head and discussed things logically and were willing to accept other peoples point of views instead of labeling them a "troll"
Off topic is the forum that should cover all the topics/issues in life that aren't already covered by existing boards.
The reason off topic won't down the drain is because of
a) the trolls
but a big part is
b) people throwing hissy fits about whats "mod-able" all the time. These same people started trolling themselves which then added to the problem.
Ive seen people planning on how they're going to troll on a given day, and what type of "troll" topic they should post.....
As bad as these mods that "pick" on people might be- those people are worse, and immature...
Any forum that exists will contain a level of bias, yours does HB, it just seems that since RFD is a bigger site that when the Admins/mods disagree with someone it's a big issue...
Plus, people take this site way too seriously, it's a DEALS site first, anything else is bonus, and if people don't like it, their not being forced to come.
