    The dating thread was closed/moved because some of the other admins and I felt it was (1) degrading towards other members, and (2) takes up a great deal of forum space.

    HOWEVER

    we will be moving it back, but with new rules

    1. If this thread gets too random, we WILL move it in to the random thread.

    2. (for under 18). If you feel that your parents would object to you participating in a (fake) dating service online, then please to not participate

    Please understand, no matter what the circumstances, you are not to flame (bash) ANY member – and that includes admins. If you have a problem with a team or admin member, PM that member or talk to ME. Don’t post something bashing someone. That will not be tolerated and some of you are up for probation because of your unacceptable comments. Of course, criticism is welcomed, as long as it is constructive.

    I feel as if I was the one who started the insults. I am very sorry. I said the insults to Joe. I'm very sorry and I was just angry at the time. I regretted writing it later. I'm sorry for being disrespectful to all of the site administrators because without them, there'd be no site. I hope you accept my apology and I won't do it again.
    Sincerely, kylo4

    okay, i can honestly say that the once polygamy entered the picture, no one took the thread seriously anymore. actually, i don't think the thread was ever really meant seriously. i mean, c'mon, was anyone ever going to really hook up with their allalias girlfriend/boyfriend? of course not. it was all just fun and games.

    and even though you can go ahead and read all the pages (although i doubt anyone would), it's still just one of those "you had to be there" moments. now i can see where things got misconstrued. but i still don't believe anyone involved took it seriously. i mean, look at how many times we just busted up laughing. and i consider myself an ardent feminist so if anyone should be offended by the "polygamy," i should be. but i'm not because i know we were all just joking around.

    i'm not saying any of this to attack the admins' decisions. i usually agree with their decisions and it is ENTIRELY their prerogative to do whatever they want with certain threads. i'm just saying that none of this was really meant seriously. personally, i just took it as one big joke. but i can definitely understand their misgivings with the thread and i can see their point of view in the explanation they provided. and if they think things are getting out of hand, i won't complain if they shut the thread down again since we've had plenty of warning. although i doubt that would happen since everything's sort of died down anyway.

    anyway, thank you again admins for deciding to keep this thread despite certain harsh protests. keep up the good work guys. :)

    and sorry this was so long.

    True, it's a bit hard to go out with somebody who lives in the next country

    Quite honestly, I think it's a bogus thread. It loses any sort of resemblance to the original topic questioned at hand after the first page is used, then everything becomes offtopic. I don't know, maybe that's just me.
