The thread in question wasn't an argument, there was nothing offensive, it was just a bit of silliness. Several people were 'having a good day', why exactly was it a problem to anybody not contributing to the thread? There are loads of threads that don't interest me, I just ignore them and respect the right of others to get on with it. Seems that's not reciprocated on here.
Whatever. Keep going until there's nobody apart from the admin team and people who want to 'Guess The Gate', then it'll be a job well done.
I'll take you up on your offer to 'debate any subject with anyone'', PM me your best shot at justifying the claim you get your moral standards from Christianity. I think we could have an interesting discussion. In fact, if you follow 1 Peter I think you can't really refuse to have that discussion if asked to?
Jeff set the forum up as a replacement to the old one. I wouldn't call it his forum, but if he chooses to shut it down tonight when he wakes up I wouldn't blame him.
As for over reacting Admin quite often ignore reports because we don't see the justification for acting.
For a place you seem to dislike, you seem to come back quite a lot. If you want to take over the forum from Jeff and moderate it yourself (or anybody you choose) so that it fits something you are happy with I am sure he will oblige.
You have your actions questioned so go into full meltdown.
This is what happens, you do or say stuff, it gets challenged sometimes.
But obviously in your world everybody has to agree with you or you threaten to take your ball home.
Just listen to yourself.
Do what you like, but consider that there are probably 20 or 30 regular contributors, and then a larger number who contribute when something significant happens, just because I think that you are wrong, that doesn't mean others should lose their forum.
If you find having someone point out that you can't even get your story straight about why the Serious Stuff section was deleted too challenging (the reason you've just given isn't the one you gave when it was first removed) then you had better just ban me because I'll carry on calling things as I see them.
