Strawman argument. I did not specify a forum. See, you can learn stuff here.
If nobody is threatened, then why this seemingly orchestrated or at least determined campaign to insult and belittle people participating in this forum? To complain that it isn't really debate? All the snarky remarks about the stupidity or whatever of it? Only people who feel threatened by a new concept that requires no participation by them whatsoever are so determined and emphatic that it has already failed or is failing or will fail.
You said I can 'unsubscribe' did you not? No strawman... I said I might ask to be banned from the XXXXX Forum. To which you responded with some crap about 'unsubscribing'... a person of average intellect would presume you were referring to my comment - since you responded to it. So, again... from what can I 'unsubscribe'?
Come on CG, you can unsubscribe from any thread in the CDZ just like you can from any other thread and you don't have to even see them if you don't want to. And if this isn't your cup of tea, then great. There's still all the rest of a very large board out there. I certainly have not posted in every Forum available on USMB and I simply can't see the angst of the CDZ existing if some of us wish to give this a try.
Beating a strawman to death is still a strawman. Granted he has the stuffing all over the place. More interesting is that you seem to be hanging around some place you have clearly stated you want no part in. I must conclude you have a purpose and that purpose seems to be disrupting the forum.
I'm sure some members who would have enjoyed this are now shying away from it to avoid crriticism or ridicule from some of our more outspoken and 'more powerful' members.
And if anything will make it fail it is going to be that and not the concept itself.
I'm not speaking against it.
I think you're just backtracking because you made a mistake and don't have the backbone to say so. But that's just me... I'm logical.
Who the fuck are these 'more powerful' members? We are all just posters here - unless you're an admin or a mod... if you mean them, then I get that.
Frankly, I drew my conclusion after having seen the quality of the 'debate' in the CDF. After I stopped laughing, I decided it's a ridiculous concept.
