    They are too much of a distraction. Please. I gotta get some work done, for Christ's sake.

    Yep, I'm not doing enough work because of my games, and I'm not keeping up with my games because of the forums...

    This sort of talk needs it's own separate forum. I recommend a Shutting Down The Forums - Forum.

    That Site Idea has actually already been implemented and discarded.

    Was that not just a temporary "cooling off period"?

    I was referring to the Forum Issues forum from the days of yore, not the cooling off periods.

    I had to give the word to one my staff for playing on RHP during work.... if only he knew...

    [insert evil laugh here]

    Having the site go down may save my career

    I think a forum discussing forums would be a better idea. Wait that's been done. I guess we could discuss that at the forum of yore.

    Sometimes I have to remind myself that my job is to sell rooms, and not to play chess.

    Yes. I think this is important. Just shutting down the forums is not enough. At the very least we need to close the whole site down. If possible we need to uninvent the game of chess.

    'The passion for playing chess is one of the most unaccountable in the world. It slaps the theory of natural selection in the face. It is the most absorbing of occupations. The least satisfying of desires. A nameless excrescence upon life. It annihilates a man. You have, let us say, a promising politician, a rising artist that you wish to destroy. Dagger or bomb are archaic and unreliable - but teach him, inoculate him with chess.'
    H.G. Wells, 'Certain Personal Matters', 1898
