This is an idea for a thread where we would rather say things about other people but because we are sensible adults. The mods/admins may not like it but it's the best solution to a problem where they keep banning people

Any posts that would normally get a ban should be redirected here and ignored because sometimes we are real people - no matter what the admins think.

What this is NOT:

An excuse to abuse someone

What this IS:

A thread to let off steam.

If you write a post and then reply or link to it then it's you own fault. Put what you want to say then move on like a normal human being.

You do realize that the latter is effectively irrelevant, right?

No.

If I said "pjp you're acting like a twat for thinking this is irrelevant" then that would be fine here.

If I said "pjp is a cunt" then that's a ban. No other way you look at it.

My choice would be we all act like adults, keep our opinions to ourselves. If you are pissed at someone, and must let them know, PM them. 8)

My point wasn't about how people would write, but why they were writing in the thread at all.

Yep. But this thread itself is fairly annoying :-)

I hate a bunch of people but no user/staff of this forum.

The only people I hate are various internet moderator/janitors. It's like the police only online, and they can do whatever they want because you're in their house.

If it was used and threads were mostly civil, whatever the motivation, it'd be worth it. But it would require a lot of moderation, and I don't keep up with everyone's comments in every thread.
