No offense, mods, but these new forum rules really seem to be stifling conversation. It’s the Everything Else, Eh threads that have been keeping this place alive over the years I would say. So many original posters have left, and very few have joined to replace them. Good conversation is not where everyone agrees on everything but rather where discussion happens even when people disagree. People can be respectful. Trolling is discouraged. The political and religious threads used to be interesting at one time. I fear we’ve thrown the baby out with the bath water now. Is that the outcome we really wanted to see?
