Why is it almost every thread that is a hot button runs the spectrum of wild crazy ideas. It is almost like the crazy gene comes out in full force when a good topic comes up. It is really sad when good topics get destroyed.

Does anyone have any idea why we can’t keep things on topic?[/quote]

For Articles
1 - Read the whole article before you ask a question.
2 - Reread the article before you post a question.

For Forum Posts

4 - Maybe, just maybe, you’re not the first newbie that wants to gain muscle and loss fat. Look at some of the posts they wrote. Which will lead you to the articles.

That’s BS. ALL sides of the debate are equally capable of rudeness, stupidity, ranting, disrespect.
For anybody to believe any different is simply projecting their personal biases.

Here, you only get censored if you dare question the efficiency of the supplements sold on the front page.

Other than that, pretty much anything goes.

This one might not make it through either. :slight_smile:

For some reason, that made me laugh out loud. For real. So here’s an honest LOL.

Who here is a Virgin.

I am. I am really sad by this. I’m in a freakin Testosterone forum.

That Asian Vixen thread makes me happy and down at the same time.

Well, I thought we stayed pretty much on track in the “Professor X Who Is He?” thread.

Seriously though, it’s because you guys are all under 35. We never do this on the OVER 35 forum.

Did any of you guys know that some offensive cartoons about the prophet mohammed were published in a Danish newspaper?

Funny stuff.

I think Randman’s assessment was spot on.

With regards to the T-Nation Atheists forum, I have all the respect in the world for haney and agshag. The rest of the Christian posters on that thread apparently weren’t interested in anything regarding candid discussion.

Some of the guys here do not want to have discussions in good faith. Immediately, anyone who disagrees is a pinhead or a communist or a redneck. A good example of this, in the Shut Down Gitmo thread… somebody said the opposition to Gitmo was all due to people who “Blame America First”.

The person who said that is simply not interested in an honest discussion.

When you start off assuming that the person that you are talking to “hates America” right off the bat, then you can’t possibly have an honest discussion.
