    Could we have a "Smoking Room".

    Literally anything goes, discussion wise. If you don't like it, don't go in.

    Obviously with an appropriate warning on the front door. Something along the lines of - "This section is not fully moderated, members may post any comments they want and no action will be taken. If you are not willing to take part in unfettered discussions please do not enter this section."

    Other than discussions it would be subject to the normal rules, e.g. no links to porn sites, no links to warez etc.

    What's wrong with the lounge? you can post anything there (as long as it's within the board rules)

    Not to get personal, but I was recently told to temper my language and that others had been moderated for swearing. In such an area people could be free to flame, fight, swear. So long as it didn't compromise the board re porn, warez etc.

    If others were clearly warned that it was allowed in that area then if they did not want to read that sort of thing, or take part in it, then they could just choose not to go in.

    why do you need to 'swear like a trooper?'

    I don't. It was just an idea.

    Sorry for the input, I'll make sure not to do it again.

    Well even if there was another area the board rules would still apply. The fighting, swearing, flaming, insults etc. would still be against the rules.

    Check rule 9.

    9. There will be no offensive or inflammatory posts meant to offend or hurt any other member(s) or guest(s) of this forum. The use of racial, ethnic, gender based insults, contents or discriminatory comments of any kind will not be allowed or tolerated. Expect action against you if you do.
    It seems to me that there are already quite a few of those type of posts in the lounge.
