Flame room?

Postby Tleilax Master B » 12 Feb 2008 14:43

We had talked a lot about this before--I believe chanilover referred to this as the "cunt corner" :P

We could have a forum where if it gets to heated, the debate is moved by one of the admins/mods to the "flame room" (or whatever you want to call it) and they can duke it out. Any thoughts? Too risky?

An admin would have to set up a user group and then restrict certain users to that thread. Freak would have to do it. The only thing we can do is patrol the threads, move and delete.

I prefer to wait until we have a need for such a place. I like to hope that we won't need it.

Probably wise.
Keep it civil. Keep it cool.

Why wait? It could also be a fun place where you can just randomly insult people. For instance, I might start a thread titled "Only communist hippies have Journey avatars", to poke fun at the knife man up there. :P

I just feel it would legitimize fighting and I don't want to encourage that.

I'd say bring it! :evil:

But that is pretty much how I describe myself! :lol:

Now, if you had said, "republican evangelical", then we'd have a problem. Uh, no offense to "republican evangelicals". :)

Sounds like bad business, best we just check the "aggression" at the door.
I think Freak said it best over at DN:

"Winning an internet fight is like winning the special olympics, no matter who wins your both retarded" :lol:

It's a good suggestion. People misunderstand the importance of an outlet. Yes it get's ugly, but that's not the point.

What's that, the subtext of the retarded theme? :) :P

I just foresee things getting out of hand. Saying what you want to say about the books (positive or negative) without censer is good but letting people get into those annoying unproductive back and forths just seems like a slippery slop.

If you guys "must", then by all means. At least it will be limited to a thread and those of us who have no use for flame wars won't be bothered by the bickering. I trust our faithful moderators to keep it contained within the "flame room" so it's not a real big deal to me.

If we decide to go that route Simon, that's exactly what it would be. Only one specific area could you do this and it would be strictly prohibited from spilling out into the other forums.

Its just a thought for funsies. I don't care if we do it one way or another.

A below(bellow?)-the-belt blow(bellow?) for literacy!

My hero! :D


(Just kidding, Simon. If you'll recall, I ragged on your spelling in that very first email I sent you last summer. ;) )


[Edit: intervening comments made this a bit obscure. ;) ]
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

My spelling depends on my mood :lol: I don't know how to use spell check so some days I'll prof read what I write, others I just fire it off like "F-it, there's so much misspelling going on who's going to care" :P
