People will start saying things that can get them banned. If you're saying in your head "Well I know I wouldn't do that...so why close it?". Because there are some stupid people on this forum that definately would do it. Bottom line, some threads just need to be closed dude. For the good of the forum and it's members.
wow, this post is crap. so what you're saying is, because there MIGHT be a few bad apples in a mature thread, we should close it because of "what-if's"?!? that is not logic, that is reactionary BS. i absolutely respect the mods & what they are here to do, however, that does not mean that they're infalliable in their decision making. it seems, that that the general consensus is that a majority of those threads were closed prematurely. and that's a shame, cause a lot of good points could have been made, but we'll never know.

Usually people who are extremely conservative will be very defensive to your opposing position, so he won't hear you out. But classes introduce the idea more neutrally, as opposed to these verbal debates that have a propaganda-esque vibe to it.
this is another ridiculous post. good lord, what is w/ you people?!? from YOUR experience? YOUR experience is not everyone else's experience. you're throwing absolute's around like candy on halloween. how can you claim that nothing good can come from a healthy discourse?!? if someone is being an ass, they should be dealt w/ accordingly & have their ignorant post deleted, enough said, as simple as that.
then the healthy discourse can continue AS IT SHOULD!

Another thing that I must bring up is that their is an "Off Topic" forum for those types of discussions. The UFC and other main fora are dedicated for a lot fan/news/event feedback. When the thread turns into something else, it's pretty much hijacked from the subject matter.

Further, if you look at the threads that were closed, they had an enormous amount of views and posts within minutes/hours of opening because of completely inflammatory comments. When a newly registered member or guest pops in and browses the topics on top of the fora and sees "id rather keep my country pure and free from you race-mixing, mud luving idots" 9 times out of 10 they are either going to sign this forum off entirely or register to angrily post on top of the pire. I'd rather not have that be representative of everyone on the forum (which it ends up being).

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
