    The ONLY end to the debate.

    DTwo:


    May I suggest,

    "General Chit Chat!
    Chat about anything related to anything!"

    Be changed to what is actually allowed and conditions of moderation are clearly stated so there can be no misunderstanding.

    Those of us wishing to converse on subjects outside these conditions will head elsewhere to do so.
    This has been the best suggestion so far, and blind Freddy can see that if the subtitle "chat about anything related to anything" isn't changed, the debate will NEVER end.
    We can't expect not to have such debates while that subtitle remains, unless it is actually "chat about anything related to anything". We can't continue to ask for something and then keep on rejecting it when it occurs.

    Exactly what I said in my second post, yet noone bothered noticing, or instead simply ignored the point totally.

    Fundamentally, that is what started this issue.

    General Chit Chat
    Chat about anything related to anything!
    Hardly academic is it?

    Cheers,

    ... i dont want to get into a long winded post, as both sides of the argument have been communicated with a reasonable amount of objectivity, bar one or two comments that may have taken an undesirable personal tone... this seemed to be pre-determined, as this topic has caused alot of angst amongst us members.

    I also agree with DTwo's and PUG307's original suggestion : make the rules clearer, so there is not misunderstanding... NOW .

    Having said that, the current format of the General Chit Chat Forum is fine.

    "Chat about anything related to anything!" , he says. Let topics run their course, and they do. Obviously, if for any reason the discussion vaguely resembles a slagging match or borders on irrelevance, from the original post... pull the pin then, not before.

    It would be dissappointing if any changes were made.

    Gibgib,

    Thanks for your new thread/post regarding the resolution of this issue. As you know, it's one of those issues which just seems to come up again and again.

    I think there should be a little text at the top of "general" about what can be discussed and not discussed if were to censore free speech on this forum then.
    At least it isnt like the fast fours forum where things are a lot worse than here.
    I love this general forum. If there is going to be a stiffling of free speech it should be done by the moderator. Not a few old guys with no life and nothing better to do please....

    I dunno Daniel...go back and read all the stuff that's been posted about this issue, the answer to your proposition is really already there on the entry page...read it carefully and think about it. Where do those Holden and S**B posts of yours fit in relation to that clearly stated aim?..answer is they don't really fit at all.

    It's time to give this whole business a rest..just live with it and try not to piss petrol onto the bonfire.
