What on Earth is with this 'epidemic' of weird news? oO

We have people starting 'serious moral issue' debates, when assuming that most people here are sub 18, and have very little life experience, you actually expect serious debates?

They turn into
"I label myself as a Transpostthingytechhumanisticogypoop": Science teh win!!
"Religiousnutwithverynarrowmindedopinions": But won't someone think of the children?

Insert quote-o-thon
Insert flames
Insert seen it all before, go round in circles, and repeat!

Then the weird news stuff, people having sex with animals, people raping kids, people raping dogs / guinnee pigs / misc animals, person cuts off something, person blows up stuff / nuns nailed to crosses.....right..in a forum aimed at not making parents go nuts...I get crusified (heh...and not a nun), for using the word 'porn' in a sig, and yet this crap lets slide....

Don't you have the mental power to actually, say erm....post topics you've actually come up with yourself, rather than spamming (yes it is spam) the off topic forum with a sea of quotes, and stupid debates.

Now don't get me wrong, some funny weird news EVERY NOW AND PISSING THEN would be witty and fun, but this is getting ludicrous!!!

Ranges from 15+

Often you get (with these posts): "If you don't like it, don't read it", but that doesn't excuse if from being spam. That certainly wouldn't stick if I posted, "KKK members lets post about our ***** hating here", or "XXX Lesbian PORN HERE".

Yeah give us teh b00b smilie ;)

While I don't read all news, I do read some and I like the discussions, at least there's something to talk about in open discussion, how strange some topics may be. I prefer seeing a topic how controversial it may be, turn into a discussion, than seeing 20 replies of people that find the news 'funny', 'lol', 'rofl', etc...

But if adminds decide to close down some news items because they aren't well suited for a 'family-site' as they want it to be, I can understand it, you do have a point CK.

However, I would rather see less strange news, than no news at all. Just because certain things are very interesting. Perhaps Player-X should make a selection of the news he has, to prevent us from getting bored of the amount of news and to keep things interesting? :)

Pretty much my thoughts exactly.


Its afterall Open Discussion. Discussions are fine, and age mean NOTHING when it comes to seriousnes. I know 15 years old with adult-enough mind and i know over 20 years olds that still act like 14 years old angsty wannabes...

Most of the debates involved don't really need life experience... and some 40+ people still live with their parents!
And what's wrong with quoting? But sometimes the debates really gets silly when certain people started quoting themselves :p That's just plain funny/silly

The only thing I agree to is the fact that anything that's supposed to be stopped by the forum rules (ie: adult stuff), should be respected, as it is something we all agreed to upon joining.

Yes there are a lot of weird news topics, and I don't bother clicking 9 out of 10, but A) Complete off-topic and silly stuff = Off-topic Discussion, B) Some people seem to like the weird news stuff and apparently no admin (AHah! oops!) has issued a warning, and C) Who the **** cares?!

With regards to your view on "stupid debates", you don't comprehend that the very purpose of participating in debates is to learn, whether you join to win or to inform. This in turn would mean I have 0 reasons to agree. You bring it in a mocking manner (teh funnay?), yet you probably expect people with half a mind to respect these 'cunning' comments.



What stops me from saying shut up, run along, and do something else in your spare time (omgz! *gasp*) instead of complaining on other people's fun, is that you're entitled to your opinion on these matters, and even this subject can be discussed. But really.. do I care? Apparently just barely to respond, but not enough to bite other people's heads off and mock the whole bunch. Or is this customary now? Wait.. I seem to recall it is. :lol:

Naw, personally I prefer "I you don't like it, do something about it (like post your own threads) rather than simply just moaning about it" ;).

To date, I thought this is just another passing phase which is why I haven't done anything (hell, it's good to see a bit of life about the place for a change). That said however, I have to agree that things are getting to be a tad excessive. There are threads being created that I am not entirely happy about and I do not want to see OT degrading to the level the spam forum was at when we shut it.

As to what to do.... well that question is tricky. Probably the best thing to do is to consider each thread on a case by case basis. On the flipside however it also would be nice to see some different OT threads to balance things out eh?

*Keith Holds Up His Perpetual Thread Sign

Surprised it hasn't been made yet, worked with other subjects that started showing up on a regular basis. Just stick all the topics into one thread like the Religion thread.

Just quote it. Problem solved :p

Each post having 100 rows long quote box... :lol:

But i guess news-subject quote-box should be enough. :)

hey, i suggested a perpetual thread for these shananigans like 2 weeks ago in the chat room. everyone neglect N1ghtw0lf ;). If there is an overabundance of anything a perpetual thread should be assigned (weird news, final fantasy, crap like that)

Creating perpetual thread for FF is overkill. It would be chaos no matter who quotes what. Especially for those who do not spend their time here 24h each day. :p

or it would be closed because it would be a 900 page flame-fest :p, but that was more of an example than a suggestion. There arent too many final fantasy threads anymore (which is good, lets keep it that way ;))

Wow that sho9uld be done,put all the weird news in one post section,that would help everyone see every one of those topics much easier:).But i must say i like the idea of this topic as seen from a quote in this thread:), or "XXX Lesbian PORN HERE".Rmember that's a quote and i am not asking for porn so don't think about the ban button.
