I'm fed up of everyone being 'nice' and polite. I say we have a FLAME board where I can moan about people and be innapropriate and nasty as much as I want. If there was a FLAME board then I'd post more because I wouldn't have to be 'nice' and 'helpful' and 'genuine' every time I posted. I could be sarcastic abusive and intolerant as much as I want and start some good ol' arguments with other people.
Maybe you could make it accessable to people with a reputation below 3 as well so people don't try to make it a 'nice' place.

If you haven't already guessed I'm bored and I'm avoiding my big important essay for uni. I think this idea was inspired by the 'helpful hints' that flash before my eyes as I try to find something amusing on the forum. 'Study hard' 'Get a job' 'try to be normal'

Bollocks to that I say! Start a revolution!

Hm. Would you mind if I moved this to the administrative stuff forum, to see if anyone else likes this idea?

Lets Do It!

LETS ALSO ALLOW MULTIPLE CAPS IN POSTS! BUT ONLY FOR MEMBERS!

It keeps editing out my caps.

I want to get yelled at instead of just getting negative rep. Express your true hatred.

I'm against the idea, no offence.[irony intended]
If someone wants to be unhepfull, rude and mean, he can do that on 4chan or gaia online, not the mention youtube, yahoo answers and a list that goes on technically forever.

This is a support site. I'm not saying that satyre, arguments, rudeness and irony have no place here, but they just have to be kept at reasonable levels for reasons of functionality. A ''Flame war'' sub forum is the last thing that is required in a forum that attracts many people from diverse backrounds. Without wanting to overreact, it would tear the site down and make it a truly decadent place just like 99% of the internet.

I guess I'lll get neged for this, but oh well.

Nobody would force you to go there Dusk. Besides we could even have a policy that if your rep is took high then you are deemed to nice and thoughtful to contribute.

A flame board...

Well countries don't usually have designated law-free zones where you can kill/steal/rape/fight/whatever, so I don't see why we should have a thread or forum where people can break one of the important rules of ADISC: Don't flame. (Yes this is a terrible analogy, but I'm tired... the point still stands though!)

If you want to flame and be inappropriate I'd rather you do it on a site that promotes that kind of thing. Like Dusk said, this is a support site! This thread is like requesting a casino room for a church. :D :p

And making this forum only for people with low rep!? That would just make two classes of members: sensible members with high rep, and jackasses who would never post anything good out of fear of positive rep!

For this to work, it would require that the rules change, but I don't see the rules changing, nor do I really think that they should. I believe it would go against the very standards of TBDL at its foundations. As a community (which is the key word, here), we are betrothed to being respectful and kind to one another. We've already stated that "memes" and insulting, uninsightful responses to posts just go to reducing the quality here.

Even if we reduce and restrain this activity to one thread, one board, we're still encouraging activity of that sort. Facepalms will be abound; insults will be abound; "Tits or GTFO," will be abound; we will be insulting for the sake of insulting, which never has a purpose at all. We will be embracing a matter of online communication (flaming, in this case) that really has no communicative point behind it.

Expressing this true hatred, as Alex puts it, really just goes to start the ball rolling -- when you find out you hate somebody or dislike them, you're going to be more prone to giving them negative reputation. Why? Because this feels like, to this board, what the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand was to World War I -- a catalyst to a lot of small feelings that explode into huge, destructive ones.

Then what's to keep us from making the "hate" disrespectful? Would it be totally within limits for me to call a fellow member of the community, if he was black, a "nigger"? Would that be allowed? What if I chose to call a homosexual member a "faggot" just because he was pissing me off?

That would be disgusting, and this community is not a disgusting place.

Just take a few moments to look at those words, think of how they make you feel, and remember that this board needs none of those to be tossed in hateful and angry ways, and opening a board up like this would totally welcome it.

It would be impossible to be policed properly. A community like this needs guidance in every aspect.

I'm definitely not for this. If you can't say what you want to say without being blatantly insulting, then you either need to learn another way to say it, or say absolutely nothing at all.

I agree with what both Charlie_F and Dusk have posted. Nothing to add other than I'm absolutely against the idea of a forum meant for juvenile antics. Several websites already named cater for that sort of shenanigans. Far as I'm concerned a flame forum is just way to avoid negative rep for being a tosser. If you have something intelligent criticisms to make nothing is stopping you from posting them intelligently no need for memes, caps or childish insults.

Nobody is forcing you to act like a unicorn coated rainbow has been stuffed up your behind.


Rance was able to phrase it better than me. Just incase you happened to miss it, here it is again:

I don't like this idea at all. You don't always have to be sugar and butterflies.

ADISC is a place where you can say what you feel, IN AN APPROPRIATE WAY. Take this for example.

Random Person said:
I think that smoking is great!

WTF YOU STUPID FUC|<ING RETARD! YOUR AN IDIOT, LIKE WHY IN THE LORDS NAME WOULD YOU DO THAT, ARE YOUS TUPID?!?!?!?!?!?!? OMZG.
Sensible Anwser said:
Why would you think that? I personally think that it's not something that should be done.... it causes really bad things, to be honest, I think it's quite stupid.
--------------------------------------

Both of those answers just gave the same opinion, but one was dumb, one was intelligent.

If we had a flame board, in my opinion, I don't think flaming would stay -just- there. I think it would be leaked onto the other boards, and we would bring in members that we generally don't want. It's not that hard to post intelligent posts, they don't have to be nice, however you can -always- get your opinion in without being vulgar and rude.

Why would you want to flame people, anyways? If you have a problem with a member take it to pm if you feel that strongly about it, there is no need to post publicly about it, in turn that would be very bad. People would end up feeling hurt, sad, and I think there may even be valued members who would potentially leave after.

We are all old enough, (Yes I think 12 or 13 is old enough) to know what is acceptable, and not acceptable. We can all act with a little bit of class, and dignity.

The only thing that forum will bring us is immaturity, and stupidity, it will do nothing to benefit the site at all. We are a support site, and going around flaming people kinda contradicts that, doesn't it? People will take it way too far, and say some really horrible, offensive things that are way out of line, and people are going to get mad and possibly leave. There's no reason to resort to offensive words and cursing to make your voice heard.

I agree with Mandi. You can complain, but do it in a constructive way. If you have a problem with a member, contact Moo, or talk to them about it directly via PM. Talking about people publicly is a rude and mean thing to do, and shouldn't be allowed.

I guess you're not familiar with the Catholic Church and their penchant for BINGO, eh? :p
Hmmm... Well then it's like making an abortion room in a church... that doubles as room for cursing God... and triples as a room for having anonymous sex in! :p
I think that covers it!

I agree 100%. We don't need a flame board. Keep your attitudes (and tounges) in check... or post it somewhere else please.

What's stopping you from flaming someone without the board

The forum rules that say you have to be 'nice'

Well countries don't usually have designated law-free zones where you can kill/steal/rape/fight/whatever,
Well in Amsterdam you can buy drugs and get sex and the law turns a blind eye. Maybe there should be more of these zones. We'd be pioneers in our little utopia.

Work hard, get a good job, be nice to everyone and conform. Bollocks to that! I say we need a space for some entertainment and arguments. Be yourself and allow your ranting and sarcastic comments to run wild.
