Sticky Thread Proposal

Considering the number of recent threads that I actually had an interest in "competing" in that turned into little profane spats about who called who what when and such, I propose we sticky a thread that, when the name calling with no content relevant to the original subject begins, the principles can agree to meet up in the new thread and continue to discuss their personal differences. This would save all of us quite a bit of time scrolling through the otherwise interesting threads for the content we were looking for. Your thoughts?

It's up to the thread starter. If thread starters want their threads cleaned up, it'll get done.

There's already an annoying sticky up there with no real purpose or reason to exist. Use it and abuse it, ya worthless fucktwit.

We could start another one for those who feel compelled to post mindless punchlines, political or religious, in threads started to discuss national tragedies.

Maybe you just need to find yourself a more sophisticated hang-out?

Not to mention the assholes who ...waitaminute. Did Ron just say I can have all of Thrillbert's posts removed?

What about well thoughtout punchlines?

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

What would we do with all those members who just have to call their opponents fascists, communists, dumbfucks, idiots, retards, fuckwards etc etc?

BWOT might became a desert.

Sorry, not gonna work.

Nice idea though.

Just like Communism
