I personally feel like mods should not hesitate to start dropping the ban hammer on all of the circular arguments around these forums, especially in the areas relating to iPhone/iPod because there are quite a few "controversial" topics that constantly pop up. I see about 5 threads a day that cover the topic of "my iPhone is locked and I'm pissed!". I may or may not agree with the people who post these threads, but regardless they get old. I wouldn't mind the threads if they were posted and died, but forum members here teld to fall into the trap of feeling they need to respond to whatever was last posted in order to show their opinion. So a thread like this might be 10 pages long, but any 1 page picked at random will have 100% of the content of all 10 pages. What's more, you could condense all of the USEFUL information found in this type of thread down to ZERO pages. I know the whole, "if you don't want to read the thread, don't click" idea, and most of the time I agree and support this. But the frequency of garbage and useless threads is growing (I'm again speaking mainly of the iPod Touch and iPhone subforums, NOT overall - most of the subforums on this board seem to retain as much quality as ever, which is to say - a lot). I personally feel like useless threads dealing primarily with ethics should be locked and the creator/aggravators be warned. I also feel like mods should start encouraging people who make threads to think twice before posting something that might have already been posted. In the iPod Touch/iPhone forums there are sometimes 4, 5 threads on the front page with the exact same content. It's like, "look, I'm happy that you were able to jailbreak your iPod, but do we really need a thread with nothing but a picture of your iPod Touch in it? We already have 5 more on this page alone...". Anyway, just wanted to voice my opinion - I love this forum (I'm new here, but not to forums!), I just wish the iPhone/iPod Touch (and sometimes the front page even) would clean up a bit and get rid of some of the endless stream of circular arguments that happen.
