Only allowing people that support to post in threads is a bad practice. There have been enough people reporting disagreements as trolling, I'd rather not let that be a real rule.

I'd prefer they just make an ignore list if people take such issues with others posts and opinions. Instead of mods erasing their posts from everyones view.

It is not shutting down of idea, it is called discussion.

If you post a thread here, be ready to debate about it. Have the thick skin to debate and promote your idea.


Couldn't agree more.

Well said :)

"If ya don't have something nice to say, don't say a thing."

This courteousy should be made a rule.



Perhaps it shouldn't be established as a rule persay in what the community understands is a rule and the implications of a rule, but it could be added into the Code of Conduct as a suggestion so perhaps something like..

"The best way to maintain good forum behaviour is to [insert quote]".

Ya can't "no support" a thread.

Personally, if I'm not into a thread I just leave it alone. I don't no support. Alternative suggestions are allowed. But "no support" posts should be hidden.



We'd effectively be restricting the liberty of communicating our opinion. A 'no support' could also be accompanied with constructive criticism or feedback, which extends the understanding of the topic. However, even then, it's not stipulated that there has to be reasoning behind a 'no support'. A 'no support' is sufficient enough for the OP to gage the sentiment of the community towards a particular topic.

I give it all of about 38 seconds before someone says "no support"... I don't care. Y'all never supported me anyway. I support myself.


This is why we should be allowed 'no support'. So that everyone has maximum liberty to communicate their opinions in a reasonable and respectful manner. Having this right means that you're allowed to create a thread like this and support yourself.
