P/R side RE-opened...for now
« on: December 20, 2016, 01:55:36 PM »
The complete inability of people to maintain civil conversation in this subforum and the resulting work/headaches this creates for the mod staff have resulted in this subforum being closed and in "read-only" mode indefinitely.  While having to occasionally remind people, especially newer members, to curb their tone, rein in personal attacks, etc. is part-and-parcel to running a discussion forum, the need is far too frequent in this subforum.  We overlooked quite a bit during the election cycle just because there was so much discussion to be had.  Now that it is over and things are still as they were, and the mod staff are tired of having to tell people to be civil, we are going to steer the discussion back to more benign topics in the other forums.

Thank you for reopening this sub.

Thank you as well even though it only took 1 minute for me to totally fuck it up.

As I was listening to updates on the trolling "story" this morning, I was thinking to myself, Chino's head is going to explode if I don't open P/R and let him talk about it.  :lol

 :tup I don't think you realize how much this sub makes my day bearable. Seeing so much shit slinging around the net when anything political is being discussed, this place is a great refresher. The intelligent conversation is a much needed relief.

I hate to make this comparison, but when you read an internet article and you scroll to the bottom, there is no discussion, it's just BS.  I usually read comments for comedic relief (there's always someone with a good one liner), but you never get that real discussion and that's what make this subforum awesome.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.
