This could be used for any theme where the posters have gone off topic and are just throwing insults at one another

I don't see it getting much attention Padge.
I've just been on the clan forum where someone has made a suggestion regarding the way the points system works.
Even if it's impractical the chap has obviously given it a lot of thought and deserves some respect and credit for that.
So you read down the posts and it degenerates into the usual mud slinging contest ...[text shortened]... I won't be visiting any more because even when there's a sensible post on there it gets abused.

And if you get tired of the general forum, go visit the debates forum for a while. Same game, different players.
All the insults and personal attacks you could ever want.....

Except announcements which you would not be able to post on

If you come across discussions or comments that are below your personal standards of acceptable behavior it isn't hard to just ignore them and move on.
Just take a look at everything available to see in the forums and think of it as your own little window on evolution in progress.

Thus making it useless to perform as it should
