Do we really need a Random Thoughts thread? Thoughts.

Shall we close this thread? It's all getting a bit redundant now.

'We like Random Thoughts' vs. 'We never feel included because we don't include ourselves'.
What, because you've decided?

That's exactly the attitude that makes the mods and Peter not want an off topic section at all. Maybe people don't want to include themselves because its not a very inclusive thread.

I can't remember who it was recently threw a strop because their cry for help or whatever was ignored in favour of a load of wig snatching. That's how most if the forum feel about that thread.
 
Haha, okay, sorry Someboy. It's all a bit foggy, cause I would get fairly intimidated by him and exit the conversation when he'd get fired up.
 
No offence Seanie, because I really don't need to get into this unclassy business, but it doesn't seem to stop you being downright rude everytime hitori posts in 'Insane Crushes' , which I believe is in the 'Off-Topic' section of the forum.
 
I think he left in late '09, I can't be sure though. He was amazing, able to reduce anyone to shreds with a single line of text, but always in the best way. You could argue with debord endlessly, and it was so much fun.

He was fabulous. He once tore a Lady Gaga fan to absolute shreds for claiming she had 'more control over her output than anyone else, which of course led him to systematically decimating the poor poster! They fled the forum as a result. I've asked him time and time again to come back. Yes, we follow each other on Twitter.

If we had a mod or two who dedicated their time to overseeing Off Topic and some of the smaller parts of the forum then that might work well.

What a childish comment.
The difference is that even if I were a moderator, I would have asked. I wouldn't have just closed it.

Not to mention the fact that Random Thoughts is now open, so why is this thread still here? It just seems to be fueling unnecessary and avoidable arguments, in no small thanks to posts like yours.

You were the one who suggested it be closed, why? What if the rest of the membership of the board want to contribute to the debate? Just because those who use the thread a lot have decided there's no need for change doesn't mean the debate is over.

There have been posts from people saying they feel intimidated and not welcome in off topic but their views have been mostly ignored in a wave of "how dare you take away random thoughts" rants...
 
debord sounds wonderful.

I kind of mix you two up. Are you sure you're not his little brother or something? Both fierce glaswegians, I believe.

He's very accomplished, but he did seem bored that the rest of us normally couldn't reach his levels. He was wrong sometimes too, but we all are.

Posts like you bullying hitori are probably what make people feel intimated, for Christ's sake. You can't be serious right now.

That's right, Seanie. I suggested it. If no one likes my suggestion, so be it. You're basically accusing me of 'closing a thread' when I have no power to do so.

My opinion is that if you want a grievances thread, fine. But this is a thread on whether or not we need Random Thoughts, and Random Thoughts is back. So what's the point? Retitle or, as Tribal suggested, move it to Forum Business. This discussion doesn't seem to have a place in Off Topic.

If you disagree with my opinion, then that's great for you. What your deal is with me I have no idea, but your unnecessary aggression is basically what underpins my argument.
 
I think what we can all agree on is that no matter what happens in the future, the well-being of the Nadine Coyle Appreciation Thread is the forum's number one priority.

Since this thread is devolving into silly arguments, I'm going to close it. Please feel free to continue in the Forum Business section.*
