    1) If you formed a club and it became so popular that everybody on rhp joined - would it be the same as the general forum?

    2) If yes to question 1 -- then at what point does the popularity of a club become it's undoing?

    3) If no to question 1 -- then what would be the difference?

    Thank you for your insights.

    (the level of your popularity may go up as well as down)
    (your reputation may be at risk if your response is retarded)

    Chioce is the difference here I think, for example someone who didn't like someones threads could make that noted by leaving the club.

    Also there'd only be one forum moderater and so there's be more continuity in deleated posts. But there's no function to ban a poster, one would have to kick the user.

    You can always delete his posts, amounts to the same thing, particularly if you leave a post giving the reason.

    Wow, that's so provocative and worth pondering, mate!

    I will get my toga on and sip some wine like Socrates. Surrounded by young boys, also like Socrates.

    I was going make a post about the optimal size of a womans breasts but felt constrained by the forum theme.

    There is no such thing as an optimal regarding breasts.

    As long as they can feed new generations of humans, it is optimal.

    That is what breasts are made for, right?

    Or are you telling me that you are a chauvinist pig who objectifies women sexually?

    They are not artifacts, you know.

    They think, they feel, they cry, and they bleed.

    Like us.

    Except the bleeding part, of course.

    Is there ever an age where you boys think to yourselves, 'I really must grow up now'?

    Really, we would. Practically, we recognise it's never going to happen.

    It would be greatly appreciated if the frigid bird alerting my post would give a step forward.

    We all have skeletons in the closet and those free from sin should throw the first rock.

    To begin with it is hard to get that many people in one spot who all get along.

    The biggest club I am in, actually had nothing in the way of forum chatter, we are all there just for the chess! It has over 700 people in it.

    The GF isn't what it once was...It has been taken over by a group simple as that!
