    There was WAY too much flaming and controversy in that forum. Everyone was warned but did not listen. So, this morning, I got up and locked it. You may not post or start new topics in the random forum now. Hopefully, when everything settles down, we can open it back up.


    Have a nice day :)

    I'm sorry, this is partially my fault, but I'm trying to get it taken care of

    is it considered flaming if you are just discussing a topic, and you have different views on the topic?

    To flame, you would have to be attacking the person, not their views. If you are constructive and say explain why you disagree with their views, that is fine.

    No we cannot, everyone needs to learn their lesson. Things have gotten out of control here the past few days; from the frequent bashing, to even threads promoting bringing down the admins. Sure, maybe you didn't take part in that, but life's not fair. Sorry
