If we're going to be a dumping ground, at least let us discuss what gets dumped in here.

Agreed. I mean, if its going to be locked, just leave it in the original forum, or delete it, or move it to the Complaint's department.

It wasn't OUR fault that the Wargamer's cant talk about religion without their thread getting locked after only 2 pages.

No, the only way to do that is if it quickly devolves into pointless personal attacks. So, great idea, except for the part where it depends on everyone being as stupid as you are.

(After that, let's start a thread on, ohhh, how different Eastern Front games handle the entrance of the Italian 8th Army, and see if we can get people to complain until it gets moved to Wargaming.)

Oh, wait, locked and moved to Complaints. That's tougher.

Well, then, my biggest compliant about BGG is that its login page is still simple enough for people like Darilian to use. Are they ever going to fix that?

Better yet, try to get this thread locked and removed to the wargames forum. That'll show them.

Successors is the antithesis of a wargame. Why would I want to play a conflict game where it is rarely to your advantage to attack?

Please, people, you're not even trying.

Case Blue is just WWII-themed Risk.

Oh, and the person who first suggested personal attacks (whoever he was) is a doodoohead.

I doubt that will do it.

Let's try the following:

POLL: Is Politics and the Sex in Politics influenced by the Wargaming hobby?!

I argue YES!!

The fine simulations (where the death, politics, and sex is elegantly abstracted) such as "Hearts and Minds" and "Barbarossa to Berlin" inspire politicians to move to a new world order of peace and understanding (recent well-known conflicts notwithstanding).

Thread moved in... 5... 4... 3...

I have said it before and I'll say it again: Strike of the Eagle is the BEST wargame EVER and everyone who disagrees is a mindless case blue fanboy, and not to mention, an idiot and a doodoohead.

Well in the one case I can think of it was locked at the request of the OP because the thread had been so de-railed. Did seem to me a bit heavy handed as very few threads stay in track, it would have been better if he had deleted it if he was that upset. As to dumping here, iof a thread gets locked becaseu it turn RSP is this not the place for it, and guese what, its a thread about religion. So yes this is the right and proper place for it.

It seems clear that you've hired a new parakeet to do your typing. This one's a keeper.

Moshe, I think what you mean to say is that if someone were to do something so incredibly fucking stupid as to suggest personal attacks, that hypothetical person would be a doodoohead.

Now it's within the rules, as long as you don't apply that logic to a conservative admin. If such an admin existed, and if he flagged every post that could even be taken as an oblique insult.
