Hmmm ... well, it's certainly an interesting suggestion! As ever, I'd like to see everyone pile in on this one and give their opinion to see if there's enough support from the membership, and, if so, we'll run it up the flagpole and see who salutes it.

I know I'm a recent arrival, but here's my two-penn'oth.

I think that it's a good idea.

Firstly, I support free speech and, however unedifying it may be to watch, squabbling falls under the general heading of "speech", so I think that it should be allowed. As board rules seem to say that it is not appropriate for this to happen in the existing fora, maybe it should have a forum of its own.

Secondly, it may act as a civilising influence, in that people who find that their threads are continually being dropped into the bear-pit may feel motivated to change their posting style.

I guess my concern is that when insults are flying back and forth, that each will feel obliged to answer the other, and it becomes a vicious circle. If a thread just goes - then people have a chance to calm down and rethink.

But I'm open to others views on this.

I entirely see where you're coming from with this, but I think that if people are really determined to have a ding dong they will just carry it over on to other threads (cf the recent sweary debate, which meandered across the board a bit). Most of these things tend to just die the death of natural causes if they are left alone.

"Mob Rule" - I'm game for it - sounds like it might be fun.....

If Lexi and shafty can be bothered to move the combatants into the ring of course...

The insults seem to be coming from one direction though.

I am not talking about any particular situation which has occurred.
This was a reply to a general query.

I agree with what conspiracist said.

This tedious and infantile tit for tat will pass just as soon as Rob stops bitching like a girl, LD stops insulting him and I stop agitating the situation.
