    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".
