well, if FYM had sticky subjects up, pple can pop in and contribute.

instead we wait for something to discuss, someone to start it.

running out of things to debate about?

Let's debate the incessant weight loss ads, clearly they think they are striking a chord with the good burghers of U2 world (or, to be fair, pretty much any advertising dependent web site).

the best way to fix free your mind is to limit every thread to 50 posts. nobody is allowed to post more than twice per thread.

pointless circuitous arguing = abolished.

As long as your comments are about the ISSUE and not another forum member, style should not be a problem.

Interesting, except I think it would just lead to more threads being started to continue the debate from the previous thread.

except spin offs aren't allowed, unless it's because the previous thread had 1,000 posts.

No, I can think of plenty of examples that were about the issue(roughly) and still the style was definately a problem. You can still be in the wrong without getting personal. I've been guilty of it and so have many many others...

Well, if the rule was to limit each thread to 50 posts and allow no spin off threads, then FYM would grind to a halt. Eventually every issue would have a thread about it filled up to 50 post.

This thread is too funny. We couldn't do a better parody of fym if we tried. Maybe we did try. And if so, this is genius.

Trust me, the usual suspects are not trying, they're just doing what they're programmed to do. That's what Jiveturkey said a few pages ago actually, and it's just been picking up steam from there.
