I now can recall why I stopped visiting the forums as often as I use to, or at least for a while, at all.
Gone are the frivolous days of word association, the heinous “the person below me”, or the intolerable whatever’s next I suppose. I suppose these thread take up to much server space. I suppose they are not as inflammatory as the almighty “evo” Thread…., oh wait I’d better spell it evolution before I’m corrected, or “what do you believe” thread. Sorry I just don’t see how one can be put above the others, except in the elitist world of the moderator. I can understand needing moderation because of the ages represented here. I understand the need for a safe forum environment, and wholesome postings. I don’t understand locking a topic because it gets on you’re nerve, and the good old “because I can” mentality. It is this very thing that has turned away many members, and most of us know who they are. People come here for conversation, recreation and relaxation. But if soooo many of the reasons you visit these forums are stripped away, why come at all.
