We discussed DRM and copyright discussions, but decided that they are ebook related. They will be outside the Debators forum and will get the same moderation as everything there.

Yes, that worries me too. It might become a ghetto where the same people end up saying the same things over and over again. Or is it that already? I'm really not sure where I stand on this whole issue.


More seriously, this is not a bad idea. As another poster suggested, if we could only have this in real life, that would keep the talking heads (religious and political) on TV out of my head and in the phantom zone where they belong .

Excellent solution, mods. Personally I find these discussions easy to ignore, but now they'll be even easier. Thank you for finding a fair way to deal with these topics.

HT if you read the "Disclaimer" sticky post in the new forum you'll see from Alex:

Quote:
The "Report Post" facility is not available in this forum. Complaints should be addressed by PM to one of the designated moderators for this forum.
The Mods are listed.

So, the mods can still slap you down.

EDIT: One of the mods is Dreams. She would never slap anyone down, but she would give you a look that would make you slap yourself.

As I've noted before, I rarely log in unless I'm ready to post something. Here's my suggestion:

Make the *thread list* visible to anyone, but when clicked, post a reminder that you can only participate if you opt in. Possibly make a new section on the main page, like the lists of newest posted books, polls, etc. (you could even put it at the very bottom of the page.) Or, possibly you could just make a post to the sticky thread each day with the currently running list of controversial threads.

I almost never browse by forum - I go to the last day's posts (almost always from an un-logged-in state) and browse through that list. After that, if I've got something I want to check by topic, I'll search for it. Usually, by the time I've gone through all 14-20 pages of daily threads, I'm ready to go to bed anyway. If I see a thread I want to reply to, I log in. I know this is strange, but that's the way I've found easiest to use the site.

I'm disappointed that I won't even SEE that there's an interesting but controversial subject unless I finish logging in. I think there needs to be more than just a sticky post - if it's not continuously refreshed, most lurking visitors won't see the section.

Crickets are noisy. Waaaay too noisy. At least they don't fly in your face like big old grasshoppers, though.

Next?

Grasshoppers having nothing going when it comes to the flying cockroaches of Kansas.. And the crickets are mere jokes compared to the the katydids of Kansas.

Have I gone off topic?

Seriously? Seriously? Have you even *seen* the footlong centipedes of the tropics? And the B-52s we grow special? Kansas ain't got nothing on us!

In the rental neighborhood where we lived soon after we were married, you could see the roaches at night going from house to house. We got the landlord to send someone out to spray. The roaches gobbled up every bit of the spray and wanted more.

And, uh, good move, mods. Sounds like a reasonable compromise on the religion/politics thing.
