It's sort of a compromise. I actually preferred the way this board was many years back, when everything went in a single forum, pats talk, jokes, political rants, everything. The problem was that as the board grew, too many people simply couldn't handle it (and it's a shame, IMO).

I've often wondered if the better solution would have been to ban all the people who couldn't disagree without being an a-hole and making personal attacks (whatever the topic was), however the forum would have remained small. But make no mistake, there were some epic blow up back then as well, (that would dwarf anything that's happened here lately). So at least there's been progress on that front.

Sub forums like the political forum were made (because too many people couldn't figure out they were (more or less) the same type of people as the ones they were arguing with, other than who they hated).

We made the Asylum, because too many people couldn't figure out how to talk smack without going over the line. We made the Tailgate forum because people whined too much about the silliness (jokes an stuff) in the main forum and how it corrupted the purity of football talk (or whatever it was), and so on.

It's a compromise that was needed if the forum was going to grow. It's not exactly what any one person would like, but I haven't figured out how to make it any better.

I think most of the MODs here will listen to ideas to improve things (or at least pretend to listen), but they do need to be presented in the right way (i.e. pleasantly), and also not require too much work of us. What can I say, basically I'm lazy.
