I used to love debate in this forum. It was damn near inspiring to actually debate some topics in depth. Sure, the occasional troll or JeffR would fuck things up for a little while, but eventually, they tired themselves out or forgot to take their meds and lost the ability to type their password so everything returned to normal.
That was how things used to be. BB would post something completely one sided but avoid actually giving his own personal opinion. He would then follow it with 5,000 links and page after page of blogs and then pretend these were facts without bias.
Vroom would ask "why", Rainjack would call him a few down home southern names often used to describe skunks and rats. Thunderbolt would pretend as if he had "authority" and call out a few people. I would simply be as nice as possible, debate would take off for pages and then we would do it again.
But now, now we have Steveo, Headhunter and the wake of destruction left by each. I avoid this entire forum like the plague now and I am sure I am not alone. This web site even removed the Political forum from the list of recently discussed topics. It has now been dumped into the internet guest room closet along with things we don't want the newcomers to actually know we discuss.
All in all, this forum now sucks major donkey ass.
Will there be two or three more pseudo-religious threads tomorrow telling people they will burn and that acting like an ass and ramming your personal beliefs down everyone's throats is the only way to save yourself? What will you do about your dumbassery?
Oh well, one and a half years until the next election. Maybe things will return to normal by then. Until then, I think I even wasted my time typing this in this forum.
