Thread: No General Talk

  1. #1
    I think General Talk shouldnt be allowed on Coaster Talk because its not about Coasters. Im sick of searching through posts and coming across "best car" and "hottest girl".

    Easy solution-don't look at them then--just stick to the coaster pages. I like General Talk because it allows us to get to know each other a little (not through Blond vs. Brunette of course <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">) and ask questions slightly related to coasters...Just MHO

    General Talk should NEVER be taken down! Most people have interests outside of coasters that we would like to discuss with our fellow enthusiasts. I think its the best part of the boards.

    If you don't want to use General Talk, you don't have to. A lot of people spend a lot of time on that board and it's nice to not be totally limited to amusement discussion.

    Thanks for the suggestion though. It is appreciated!

    <BR>And it does seem that if trouble pops up it's in the General Talk forum. Believe it or not, you're not the first to suggest that it be removed. But it's seemed popular enough that we've kept it.

    I'll say it again, if someone steps out of line, ban them. No warnings. The more they get away with, the more they are willing to try more dumb stuff.

    The general talk should stay, and it is good to talk about something else other than rides and coasters after a while.
