How About A Worlds Stupidest Threads Forum?

one cannot "avoid them" as suggested.

we can choosenot to click on a specific thread...

but since more folks are reading THIS thread

than any other on the forums right now...

and even after closing it...

clearly the desire to exchange ideas on social topics is strong....

sort of airstream after hours, or
airstreams once the aluminum, travel and good tastes...

are removed.

so, who'd like to see a...

wayofftopicreallystupidsexpoliticshatebigotrymilit arygodgames forum section...

that NEVER shows on the main portal or current thread page and not available to guests.

one would need to OPT IN for these topics and to read and play with others there...

and likely many 'guest readers' would sign up for airf, just for this...

but the moderator would need a biohazard suit and a dose of fluoroquinolones...

Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea Forces Treatment Change - Newsweek Health - MSNBC.com

or not...

it is interesting NONE of the other forums in the social knowledge network
have tackled this issue yet either...

so perhaps beta test it on the yoga or geeeeetarrrr forums...

cheers

perhaps the buddy/ignore feature could be expanded to include forum headings or specific threads?

I would like to see an area here that is (free) subsciber only, and self deletes each thread after 24 hours to save bandwidth.

There’s no such thing as a stupid thread here…

They inspire, educate, entertain and inform.

Happy Friday the 13th !
