The Boxing Ring

I've noticed lately that a lot of people join this board just to start fights and cause trouble. i understand that when ever people come together in one place opinions are going to clash and people will argue about what they feel is right. What i suggest is that the mods or who ever set up an area just for this. We have an off-topic and general area but there are serious thread in those that get ruined by bickering. Obviously fighting will still occur in other areas but maybe if people have an area to vent some of the aggression will get cut down in other threads.

While it sounds logical, it wouldn't work...no one is going to say, "I disagree...let's take this to the ring..."

Maybe if the thread is taken a turn for the worst drop the part off that's causing the problem into the ring? -- That would have to be a mod and such though.

Now that's a good idea...however admin told us mods long ago that splitting a thread causes some internal problems for him...good thought though.

i'm not saying that fighting would end completely(that would take a devine act) What i'm saying is if people had a place where they could go pick a fight, or talk trash about someone/something without getting banned then maybe it would atleast back off in the other sections

I believe I've heard that somewhere else before, that it causes/caused some problems.

But yeah, it would easily turn into a flame fest more than just a heated arguing arena.

That goes on in normal threads already, and people have arleady started threads specifically aimed at other users in the past. I'm just suggesting that since we can't stop it from happening( you bann someone they just re-register) give it its own section to keep it out of the real sections.

Examples:
Classic Cars Section
ricer fags and their piss ass 4 bangers (this thread has 18 pages)
Asian Import Section
too many to mention
General Chat Section
Kia? (started as a request for help and turned fight)

i'll admit to having argued and call names. but that's human nature i'm just saying that instead of banning every person that starts trouble just keep it away from the main posts

It's kind of like in real life...no one gets into a heated argument and says, "Hey...let's go over here where we can be alone...and argue/fight."

i'm not suggesting moving arguments that start in mid thread but instead a place specifically for venting and childishness. if it was tried for a short period what's the worst that could happen? If it doesn't work or causes more problem just remove it, and say "hey airmanusn that was a f***ing dumb idea" but if it does work than i think if would be an improvment to the board.
