Thread: So Lets Get This Right

  1. #1
    This forum is for serious topics alone, but your closing the topics that are serious? Please DO NOT take your personal views into codsideration! So please explain what we are meant to talk about in here? The things that the mods want to talk about and nobody else??

    Yes, this is for serious world issues.

    The trouble with serious topics is that they get emotive.

    Some, like "Abortion" can cause serious distress to people that have gone through it.

    I did not "Close" the topic off my own back...it was not my decision alone.



    The topic opened with a warning that it would be closely monitored, and could be closed at any time.

    We tried to keep the topic open as long as possible, by asking ppl not to post pictures etc...

    However, as one post in the topic showed, and what numerous PMs showed...is that people were being distressed over the subject.

    That being the case....after consultation, it was decided to close the topic.

    So why have you chosen to have a serious topic section if you do not allow serious topics? You say you got PM's in relation to this. What are they doing in this section anyway? Sort your selves out! Have a serious section or not, don't be laughable!

    This is a serious discussion section, are you going to close every topic?

    I saw some valid replies here, I don't think the abortion topic should of been closed.

    Off hand i cant think of ANY topic, other than this, that has been closed in this section....so im not sure where the "close every topic" comes in.

    You are of course, entitled to your opinion.

    I said that "After Consultation".......it may yet be that the topic is re-opened after all the Admin/Mods have contributed to this.

    I would however, prefer to err on the side of NOT causing further distress...so try and think of the subject on "Hold" for now.

    Thank you.

    So if you can point me to section where this topic has gone too far?? Nobody is being flamed, everyone is stating their views in an adult way. Please mods, don't base this on personal opinion, this is everyones views!

    Insanity, I was following it as well. People were getting angry with each other. I understand what you are saying but I feel that it was for the time being the right descision.

    I just don't understand why topics of less serious nature are being closed when the one that was closed was not even out of hand

    But never mind, i'm sure this section is being closely moderated now
