oooh, pretty. way to viggofy the thread, olive. Every thread needs some lovin'.

I'm really excited about my score because I was really not prepared (or didn't feel like I was). I needed a score of 50 to get credit, and I got a 69. So apparently I did something right. lol.

BECAUSE I'M TIRED OF THE STUPID FIGHTING AND NAME CALLING AND ARGUING!! Just because its called Free Your Mind does not give people the right to talk so much trash. I dont see this much shit talked in any other forum. People need to learn how to DISCUSS and DEBATE in a calm matter or you lose your priveledge.. its that simple. Dont forget this is a U2 forum and supposably we are all U2 fans here.
hey now , in the naaaaame of .......

I do miss FYM. I understand that we could go to another forum for political discussion, etc. But since we all kind of know each other here(in a way), it makes debate more interesting. I think closing FYM for awhile is a good idea. If you only punish the people who acted up, the people who didn't act up will never learn that lesson as well at the peole who did act up. One thing I've always liked about this board is the fact that people DID discuss various things. I've been on other forums and you could barely tell that it was for an artist! At least here people do post in everything you know is wrong and other U2 related areas.
i guess it is good for all of us to get away from arguing for awhile. Honestly though, I almost liked the arguing(to a point) because people weren't afraid to offend anyone. People in real life just always seem more concernd about making someone else happy than sticking up for what they believe in.

If you are talking about me, I think I said that "I won't lose any sleep if you close it down"

and I won't, I am going to sleep in a couple of minutes to be exact.

As far as phony patriotism, again if you are talking to or about me please clarify.

Huh? What did I....?

Did I do something that I didn't know I did?

Heh... This past week was the first time I went into FYM in a long time... Never felt like reading all those longwinded arguments in the first place.

Oh well... it's not like when I woke up this morning the end of the world came round.

Bring it back! Or you'll upset those members that don't even want to hear about this stuff. It's better to have the FYM forum and have the animals duke it out in a confind area than to have them pissing off mainstream users in other forums like Everything You Know is Wrong and Lemonade Stand.
I agree. I enjoyed FYM, always interesting to get others point of view. I'm surprised that the Mods couldn't decide on a fairer way of punishing those that got out of control. Instead they decided to punish all of us? I don't quite understand the logic here...

I doubt it would be Sicy or Elvis trying to 'teach anyone a lesson' as such. The mods here aren't about teaching us how to write, how to be civil, how to argue in a calm way, the rules of debate are universal.
So what were they to do? People who abuse or misuse the board are reprimanded for their actions. Never do the mods treat anyone like naughty school kids. They have opinions, and they try to get their points across that some behaviour is not on. A solution is not to ban the people who do it, not yet, as usually arguments of such a nature are contained in that forum alone. The people involved in them do not often spread it further afield. It is accepted that words and posts are said out of anger and in the heat of the moment. It is an evironment that encourages differeing opinions to be brought forward. Sometimes, people can get too carried away and take a few steps too far.
There are not many stupid people here, it is really not on that such rules have to constantly be set down. We should use our heads. Before hitting submit reply, read over your post. Preview it even. What is the tone? How will it be taken by others? Keep these things in mind and there should never be any ridiculous personal attacks. It is quite possible to post an opinion and debate something with someone on the opposite end of the opinion scale without causing a cyber war.

As Sicy said, it is a temporary hiatus for all of us at Interference.

I liked FYM too, but sometimes where I wanted to say so much, express my opinions on lots of things, I felt restricted, because one of you out there would always try to get one over on me..................therefore never could feel I could comment without apologising for it first.

Freedom? what Freedom?
