Question to forum users

Looking at this forum makes me sad. Many of us had such high hopes when it was formed that it would become a different forum to that of the Political Debate one, where history could be discussed in an informed, insult free way and then I look down the list and see closed thread after closed thread. It's not even as if it is the first time that these threads have been closed, it's about the 5th time this forum has hosted the same old debates over the same old tired subjects that will never be resolved. Please, when opening a thread think about how much it will actually add to the forum (and I don't mean in insult ridden post count or work for the moderators). If it is only going to lead to the same lame debate then please contact the usual suspects by MSN or PM and carry out the debate (although you should be able to predict the response by now) and save the rest of us the headache.

Thank you

Great job of proving the point of Natalya's post, Reaper.

I find it amazing you try to come off as a moderate.

I think it seems to be a few individuals who usually throw things out of whack, and ruin threads with the same old thing over and over. Other than that the majority would like discuss normally.

Maco vs. Greeks is just one of the rivalries and just the latest that got hot. There are plenty of others. This forum should have the same admission policy as the PD (if it doesn't already?) and IMO the mods should just close down all threads that repeat old debates and point with a link to the older stuff. So whenever Serbs vs. Croats, Armenians vs. Turks, Greeks vs. Macos etc. etc. comes up just lock it. Eventually people will just back off and the locking policy will serve to deter unknowing newbies from restarting the trouble.

That makes sense. I simply find it impossible to contain myself and not participate in such topics, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. So it's bound to be the same debates over and over again with only mild variations.

I subscribe to Andrix's idea.

agree with you. I for one reckon that fights normally start when one user starts to be proven wrong. In the future, debates should be refereed by a neutral person. Upon the completion of the debate, the moderators should close the thread so that ppl cant simply trash it.
