Looks like football threads are heading in the same direction as the political threads, ....cya football threads
What happens as this site gets largr and more popular and non-Celtic fans start posting their displeasure with the Celtics winning every game by 30 points this year? Everyone will become pretty heated! Will we be ceasing Celtics threads then?
I fully expect a very stern rebuke in the form of a PM or a suspension for this post. It goes in line with the ever increasing police state that seems to be becoming a part of this site over the last 3-4 months.
And you know what that's fine, it's Jeff's site and the mods receive nothing for the thankless job they do and this is a great site. But I'm just voicing my 2 cents of constructive criticism. Sometimes for the overall good some things need to be changed. I mean even the Constitution had the Bill of Rights.
Maybe letting certain threads get a little testy is a good thing, and an entertaining thing. I mean isn't that what this site does is entertain us in a participatory manner?
Besides wouldn't the continued constricting of topic forums or lively debate eventually cause a plateauing of general interest in the site and possible decrease of participation? I'm pretty sure the advertisers wouldn't like that!
Just some thoughts, sorry in advance if you don't agree or find this insulting or problematic.
