    I have observed that over the last 8 months the board has evolved to the point where, for any topic, intelligent discussion ends somewhere near the bottom of the first page. Thereafter it's just streams of insults and personal attacks. Therefore I propose that admin limit each thread to one (1) page. When that limit is reached, shut it down.

    Why not limit the personal attacks and insults? Seriously! Well the main reason being that too many people come on here just for the personal attacks and insults, they don't care about politics much at all, and the forum would die. Essentially.

    Speaking out against Israel'll getcha slapped down as well, might as well make it the first challenging comment.

    May be it would make more sense to remove those posts which mainly consist of insults and personal attacks? There is a chance that a few trolls may lose interest in this forum though....

    I thought the mods were doing that already. And screw the trolls, the sooner they leave the better.

    Quite often, pointing out that a post is stupid is the most logical and reasonable response possible.

    Isn't this what the CDZ is for? And I agree with the statement above, there are many people online that simply go to message boards to crap on fellow human beings. They feel empowered because it is anonymous. Like someone at the back of a crowd of people throwing a sucker punch and then disappearing into the crowd because they have nothing else to offer.

    Well now, not many posters write a post knowing full well that it's stupid. Maybe some people actually do that to stir up a fight so they deliberately post something outrageous. Which to me earns them the Ignore button cuz I have no interest in engaging in a verbal pissing contest. Otherwise there's a difference between telling somebody their post is stupid and then insulting them or engaging in a personal attack against them or what they wrote, as opposed to pointing out where you disagree without the vitriol.

    In any case, pointing out that a post is stupid isn't the most logical and reasonable response possible IMHO. Sometimes the most logical and reasonable reponse is no response at all.

    Time to close this thread. I think this post will begin page 2.
