You can't have Science in the same box as Spirituality, that just gives the creationist lot an excuse to spam Science threads. Multiple forums were OK before clubs, but any number of specialist forums can be made available there, for example a Science Forum club or a Spirituality Forum club.
No interest is no interest.
Why continue to beat a dead horse?
Just because *you* want it doesn't mean it's a good idea.
Shoving topics off into their own specialist clubs only results in no one except those club members seeing the conversations. Silencing free speech is never a good idea.
If you are interested in killing RHP then go ahead and do what these people suggest. These forums are a unique aspect of this web site, and a hell of a lot better than most other forums on other web sites. Some people are brought here by the chess and stay for the forums. Others are brought here by the forums and stay for the chess. Don't ruin both groups, and the entire site in the process, by ruining the forums.
Again, please don't fix what is NOT broken!
