    I think a mod needs to merge these threads that are whining about threads that need to be merged.

    I don't mind folks expressing hate for Trump. But the flooding has gotten out of control. I think we need more merging of same-themed posts, and limiting Posters to maybe 3-4 thread-starter posts per forum, per week.

    Limiting OP's is not a bad idea, but I'm sure the software can't keep track of that. There was a Trump forum here around election time and all the libs were in there insulting him all the time. Is it gone?

    I enjoy USMB. I don't wanna leave. I'm making these suggestions to try and improve the site.

    Yeah, i'm not proposing limiting reply posts. I'm only proposing limiting thread-starter posts. Each Poster should be limited to maybe 3-4 thread-starters per forum per week. I don't know about the forum you mentioned. I'll check it out. But an 'Anti-Trump' forum could ease the flooding problem.

    You seem to be kinda new here, so you don't realize yet that keeping anti-Trump sentiment (or anti-Obama sentiment) in a particular forum is impossible here. It doesn't matter what your thread starts as, it turns into a hate Trump or Obama thread. People aren't too smart, is all I can figure.

    I hear ya, but it can be checked. More merging or moving and limiting posters to maybe 3 thread-starter posts per forum per week, would likely ease the flooding. And it would promote some diversity and creativity. Right now, the repetitive insanity is destroying the site. It's gotten to be so boring and annoying.
