    Hello,

    With everyones emotions running a bit high because of the war, I wondered whether it would be a good idea to have a seperate pinned topic for war discussion??

    It might cut down on the flaming and bad feeling that seems to be going on in the Lounge just now.

    Just a though.

    Does no one else think this would be a good idea?

    Look at the amount of threads connected to the war, wouldn't it be easier (and more peacefull) to have 1 pinned topic? instead of half a dozen fragmeneted ones??

    I think it's a very good idea, we're talking about it in the Mod Room.

    I don't think it's such a good idea. The topic is too wide. The war has too many consequences to be discussed in a single thread.

    Maybe another board (even temporary) would be better.

    I agree with you Ketoprak, it is too widespread but maybe the Mods will come up with a solution somewhere in the middle, perhaps a "for" thread and another for "against" and a demilitarized zone in the centre

    I know there are a lot of topics on different war issues, but they all end up in the same "I'm Right, you're wrong" flaming.

    Agreed-but possibly unworkable for the reasons ketoprak pointed out, perhaps the MODS, in their wisdom, can make it work somehow.

    May not be acceptable for obvious reasons, but something along the lines of country of origin, pro/con ??????????

    It's a tough one.

    come on.
    do we really want a new thread everysingle time a soldier is killed,captured,missing,eating,sleeping,taking a shit?
    I can already see a bunch of new threads being put up every single time a new report or rumor is reported in the media.
