    I think the several 'Anti-Trump' thread-starter posts could be moved or merged. They're same-themed and repetitious. I'm even proposing an 'Anti-Trump' Forum for y'all. I think that could ease the flooding in other Forums.

    I also think there should be a limit on how many thread-starter posts individual posters can post per day or week. The site needs a shot in the arm. Just a couple posters are flooding and hijacking Forums. Once they're reigned in, the site could see some diversity and creativity return.

    The new limits would apply to all posters. It's become so boring and annoying seeing the same couple of posters hijacking Forums with numerous repetitive thread-starter posts. A limit on thread-starter posts per poster, could get the flooding problem under control.

    My secret wish is for some new software that automatically assigns obvious troll posts to the flame zone.

    It could be called "The Guno Room".

    You guys are never happy. How many times have you complained that I have bumped old threads? Now you two are complaining there are too many anti Trump threads?

    So then you should like it when I bump an old thread. Or should I create a new thread every time a random thought pops into my head?

    Make up your minds. Do you or do you not want us creating new I hate Trump threads? Because I can easily find old ones. I don't need to start a new thread. There's tons out there.

    Exactly.

    Same with all the "I hate Clinton" threads....

    If there is no real topic to the thread - like it's just a rant about the orange cheeto with no particular point - it will likely be moved to Badlands. If it's on something he's done or said - and the member hates Trump because of that - it's likely fair game for discussion.

    You haven't figured out the mods here yet, methinks.

    They don't give a shit about flooding. The only reason they are mods is so that they can pervert the internet narrative. They don't give a shit about usmb, they don't care about how much traffic they prevent. All they care is how many lies they can get out there.
