    I LIKE BOOBS AND PIE AND ALSO PIE

    So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys...I was terrified. But I pressed on, and as I made my way past the breakers, a strange calm came over me. I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things, but I tell you, Jerry, at that moment ... I was a marine biologist.

    Yup, it wasn't good while it lasted. No more topics degenerating into pics of the twin towers blowing up LOL.

    Oh but i only skim for the odd interesting topic like science topics. Doesn't mean i can't have a personal opinion about the others (which, don't worry, i won't share in the topics themselves)

    Tis shame...

    These forums just aren't the same anymore.

    When it first came about, moderation was light, if any at all, with people usually moderating themselves.

    Then it got heavier when a core team was initiated...Though fair.

    Then it got heavy handed.

    Then a R&P forum was created so moderation wouldn't have to be wasted on R&P related topics.

    And now it got removed...Because it looked back?

    Bah...Whatever.

    Hence why I went to skulking a couple years back...

    Now I will go back. So sad...

You guys can't even manage to behave yourselves enough to have civil discussions without getting thrown out. THAT' is a fine example of men do when women aren't around.  You guys really need to start using both sides of your brain before you destroy the world. image

    Sad. Really Sad.  * sighs* R&P on here was far more entertaining than other sites. I'm going to miss it. image

    THIS ^

    But hey, we can all see each other in regular Off-Topic right?  R & P had some great moments though =)

    They are allowed if people remain civil is my interpretation of the rule. If they don't remain civil then the topics will probably be completely banned again. And my guess is civility will be determined by someone not participating in those discussions who will not share their opinion about what being civil means.

    I still don't understand what the problem is Grunty. I mean was the information posted in the R&P discussion forum worse than what is posted here: http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm?post=3995025#3995025

    Would this person be banned or deemed as a troll if he were to post this same post in the R&P forum? I really don't understand what you and the mods have against people expressing themselves in their own unique and authentic way. In my eyes as long as the writing is good and their opinion(religious, political or whatever) negative or positive is presented in a skillfull and civil manner, I see no reason why people can't migrate to the spam forum to express their opinions and thoughts. I mean for crying out loud it's a SPAM forum, everything posted their is essentially garbage anyway, so why not let us post our garbage and let us have our fun.

    I don't care if you post it in the spam forum. The moderators might though. The problems the R & P forum were intended to reduce were the continual thread hijackings of the the R & P posters and the vehemence in which they argued.

    They didn't have any boundaries. They couldn't remain civil. They were then given their own place with much bigger boundaries. They became even less civil. Their playroom has been shut down.

    To me that post is on the border of being offensive. Were it much more offensive I would report it. I read enough of the first paragraph and scanned a couple of other places to know it isn't something I want to read further. So I stopped and I won't be going back to it. I got past the habit of cussing for the sake of cussing. It has its value when it isn't overused.

      There is a difference between real life venting/expression, and the insulting/bullying of other users that went on in R&P. I would argue they barely even discussed legit politcs there. It was the same ideas posted in every thread, eventually degrading to just back and forth name calling, assuming it didn't start that way in the first place.

    edit: Although if cursing in general (even if it isn't directed at users) is grounds for reporting, then yes I imagine the thread you linked could be deleted if mods saw it.

    I stopped going there several months ago. It had its good moments, but eventually became too ridiculous. Surprised to see it go, but doesn't really bother me.

    Well, this place is boring now.  I have pretty much stopped coming here.  I check my games, a few posts, then log off.

    Shame they took a fun forum away.

    Well, they got to have a place for the other 99% of asinine bullcrap that gets spewed from people's heads onto the interent.  Oh... and a place for RMT sellers or no-name game fanbots to spam their stuff.
