    We could at least try to have ONE thread without Insults (open or hidden ones).

    Try staying positive instead of thinking negatively, anything is possible.

    So what would the Parameters for such a hypothetical thread be?

    People: anonymous/registered
    People: same Group/diverse Group?
    Topics: boring/exciting
    Moderator: ?

    Lemon doesn't seem like he wants friendliness he says he does, but is now showing his true colours.

    One way to start would be perhaps to encourage only those to post in this thread who like positivity.

    Is this the “Impossible Challenge #2”?

    Or just say positive things instead of being negative....Someone always has to spoil it unfortunately.

    The General Forum is a "safe space" for anyone to wander in off the street to share and release. It speaks well of the denizens here that everyone is welcome no matter how crude, annoying or generally unpleasant. Would the forum be a bit better off if a few folks had their Internet service disconnected for a week or two? Surely.

    But if not here, where? Where can the annoying chess players of the world go and be welcome to spew their stupid comments and pathetic screeds? Everyone needs a friend, even the worst of us.

    We can't just have good people, there must be a balance. 🙂

    yer grotesque and an insidious sneak
    yer a boob and a hideous freak
    yer a miscreant klutz
    an androgynous putz
    yer bloated and blandly bleak
