Create GENERAL DISCUSSION section?

Recommended Posts

Can we have a  General Discussion section?   It can also accomodate conspiracy theories, and maybe some sections that aren't that popular can fall into General Discussion?

Uh, if we're going to have a general discussion section why not have a SEPARATE section for conspiracy theories?

Why ? 

Because Argus despises the truth so he does not want to see it put in front of him now way, no how. But, in that you and Argus are very similar, Michael.

Does that mean that finally, you might get around to discussing Popular Mechanics USOCT, Betsy?

Well, no. 

That means your nonsense won't be all over the place!  And at the same time, you won't be deprived of spewing out to your heart's content. giggle.gif

 

I'm fighting for your right to rant, you know. Even when you're hallucinating! smiley.gif

 

You're like a sleeping volcano that's just woken  and blowing up all over the place.....your lava oozes everywhere.  I don't know for how long we have to put up with it.  General Discussion section should keep you well-contained. animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

So you read dirty magazines?  Figures. 

Only one who sees dirty sex talk in that statement would have a ..............dirty mind.

At least you admit you've got a dirty mind.

Well.....that's what you say.

You read dirty mags (no wonder you see dirty sex everywhere).  Hmmmm......and you keep invoking Satan. 

He must be constantly on your mind.  I don't see you....for all I know you're a little minion with little horns, doing your satanic jig.  Well here's to you......

Exactly. We could project all kinds of negative attributes of each other with questionable evidence and state these projections as though they were fact, just like Trump did when he said Obama was tapping his phones. And we would be lying because we really don't know anything about each other. I'm glad to see you are beginning to understand.

I do not see what good that would do.   The current sub-forums already permit a lot.  If you want to start a new discussion and you have no idea what sub-forum to use, put your thread anywhere you want and send us a Report aftwards asking us for help. 

Knowing Greg as I do, I bet a 2-4 of Canadian beer that he will not be interested either but you are all welcome to make a case.  I could be wrong.

I am sorry but this is such a confusing request.  Are you asking mod staff to decide on your behalf what is and what is not popular?

I think what Betsy is asking for is a conspiracy theory area where someone can transfer one particular poster's conspiracy theories that he interjects into every discussion, thereby derailing a topic.

What topics fall outside of what's already available in the "OFF-TOPIC DISCUSSIONS" section of the forums?

Can you give me an example?


I was going to share my make up videos when I registered first in this forum but I was confused to share it whether in arts section or sport section or health section :lol:  noone of them was the right one.

Like the recent topic about prepping, conspiracy theories and other things that might come up that don't really belong anywhere....I can't think of other things at the moment but I know that I once posted a topic in another forum about strange "phenomenon."

I would like conspiracy theories to be quarantined...sorry I mean contained in a separate section.  But to be fair, there has been resistance to the idea because for some it puts such posts at a lower status than "real news".

Who is going to decide for an issue of being a conspiracy or not ?

If it falls under the definition of conspiracy theory, then it's conspiracy theory.

The poster always selects which forum to post in.


No conspiracy theorists will start their topic in conspiracy theory section because they "believe" that its the truth.

Well, no. 

Of course it means "no", Betsy. I knew full well that you would never consider defending Popular Mechanics drivel because you know it's drivel. And yet, knowing full well that it was/is drivel you did carpet bomb that initial thread with the Popular Mechanics drivel.

Precisely, Betsy. That definition describes the USGOCT. Prosecutors describe conspiracy theories all the time. Science is what takes it from a theory to a proven fact. Science has proven that the US government conspiracy theory has a zero chance of being true/accurate/plausible.

For once I agree with you.

And you know full well that you US government supporting conspiracy theorists wouldn't dare to start a USGOCT thread because you know you can't provide any proof/evidence for that terribly lame conspiracy theory. The opportunity has been there for months on end and not one believer of the USGOCT has offered one iota of evidence/proof.
