    Debate forum

    What do you guys think of having a debate forum . Would allow people to discuss topics that are frowned upon in the other forums . Basic rules can apply , ie: stay on thread topic, dont degrade people ect...


    What say you ..

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    We have a forum for P&R. It was closed because it eventually brought out the nastiness in people. Mods were spending most of our time in there putting out fires. Members were angry with each other (there's some bad feelings that still show up now), angry with the mods.

    As always, when this is brought up, we will discuss it and get back to you.

    If it was one or two people, we could have handled it, but unfortunately, I think the mods were outnumbered. Or maybe it just felt like it and they were just faster typers than us (me).

    Unfortunately, yes, that is generally the way.

    By and large I think we have a great group of people here with many varying points of views. There is a lot we could learn from each other even in disagreements. Yet, as Peanut said, the staff was spending a lot of time there dealing with things. Since this is primarily a football forum it didn't make sense to as the staff (volunteers) to moderate something the forum isn't really about so it's been shut down.

    A total nod to all ( like you) that could speak to the issue without angry posts, attacks, judging etc... there was a good discussion there. It just ran its course..
