can we bring back FSC??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
especially with a war brewing....

perhaps to hold just war threads and political threads...maybe religious threads too...but there have been few of those lately....

just look at the AO page:

first 8 threads

1. Name Your Favorite Sushi Bar Treats


2 What If US stopped giving to other countries?

3 great advertising


4 If you were trapped on a desert island...

5 She Needs to go to Vegas!!!

6 Hans Blix is a Liar

7 Honda Element Pages: 1 2

8 The Ring

the light hearted threads are happy and nice...the political threads get nasty quick....

i expect it to get worse when the war starts....

just a thought

It is getting a bit fireside-like around here lately, isn't it?

All that would have to happen is for someone to mention the idiocy of creationism and the whole place will go up in flames.

Maybe we should open a special war forum. Just while it lasts.

Get them out? I don't know what you mean? I always have them out.

If FSC comes back we'll still have folks sneaking politics into everything they can in this forum.

Besides, we don't need a forum for the war -- it won't last that long anyway.

I vote Yes!

Or make a new thread for light Entertainment discussions.

Maybe that would be good.
Call it the Lite Side...or:

Light & Fluffy or,
AI Fun Pages or,
AI Clubhouse

Something like that.

What we *can* do is post things to their proper forums.

And we'll keep our eyes open for duplicate threads as well.

The day we bring back FSC is the day my ex tells me she made a mistake and can make some sort of commitment to the relationship.

It ain't ****ing happening.

The other alternative, and it is a good one is to *not* go into AO. The Mac forums are the best we have to offer. After all, we are a forum based around the Macintosh.

If you really want to look at the 'real life topics', just don't click on the threads that have 'flame war' written all over them.

good advice fran, but i think time away for AI is a good thing from time to time...gonna probably ask brad to close me out till summer...allow me to clear the head and all...have fun boys...and girls (though we have few of those here...i know the internet isn't just a guy thing, but guys take to it more easily i think...the other day my wife was on the computer when murbot IM'ed me...she said, "ahh, honey, who or what is a murbot?"...me: "oh, that is a friend of mine from canada"...she: "you are such a geek." and she shakes her head while walking away)

anyways....thinking of getting a new puppy this week, that should keep me busy till summer anyways with training and playing and making sure the older dogs don't kill it...

so brad, if you get some time off from that lady friend of yours (i get so happy knowing that the geek boys are getting some too, makes a pappa proud ) could you IM me??? thanks....
