    Is there anyway that MacRumors could have a mini-forum devoted to spam, flaming and other trolling. This place would have no moderation. I'm thinking like a 20 post minimum to post there?
    I think that it would eliminate lots of the trolls on the main forums, and let people argue endlessly about stupid things like console wars, or whatever grinds their gears...

    Opinions?

    no good would come of that imo

    Isn't that what the PRSI is for? ;)

    I kid...


    I would not be in favor of this... I think it would create too much bad blood and ill will and it would spill over

    Hm. I think i'd be better if we stuck to proper conversation throughout. There are thousands of places on the internet that people can rant... or they can rant in text files:p

    Not only do we have a forum dedicated to these concerns, but the moderators will very happily move your posts for you should you accidentally make threads best suited to that forum on another part of MR. Aren't we lovely? :)

    In fact, I think this very thread is headed there now! How coincidental!

    I agree with everyone else really. It's nice to be on a forum wherethe majority is nice. It's hard enough for moderators already I imagine. When i joined there weren't that many members, now there seems to be thousands and thousands. Even if this new forum were to be unmoderated, it would spill over I'm sure.



    My golly! We're not living under an oppressive regime! The OP was only expressing an idea in the correct forum.
