I know this sounds off the wall, but you guys have successfully created new forums in the past. The EE forum is much better now than it was before you created the Political forum.

I love pure football. I think a lot of people love pure football. I think a lot of people are sick of all the personality crap that goes on in the PFF.

How about you start a forum entitled something like the Personality Place Forum. In that particular forum, participants can attack other posters for their opinions. They can take quotes from other forums and then express why those opinions are "BS."

The Pure Football forum would be devoid of such personality attacks and instead be about Pure Football. A person could give his opinion on any topic as long as it is about Pure Football. For example, one poster could say........"this FO is great," and another could say, "this FO sucks," and no one would call out another for their opinions. They could do so in the Personality Forum if they so desire.

All posts that question another poster's character, "agenda," etc would be moved to the Personality forum and the Pure Football forum would just be comprised of pure football posts, opinions, takeaways, etc on football topics.

I know it sounds crazy, but I really think the board would be a much better place for the majority of participants. Those who care about the personality attacks could do so and those who don't would never have to open the Personality Place forum.

I'm smart. smile

I think the rule of thumb for replies in any forum should be "address the post, not the poster". People need to stop theorizing why someone said something, and replying instead to what it is that they agree/disagree with. Personal attacks should be deleted, and if repeated, treated the same as name-calling. In other words, banned camp for offenders. This isn't fight club.

That makes sense, Dave. The problem is that there are a handful of folks who do nothing but attack the poster. They get away w/it and threads are derailed.

I am not as "smart" as you. What was your intent in posting those gifs?
