Speakeasy forum

General discussion

A modest proposal.

It seems that "Speakeasy" no longer is an approptiate name for this forum. "Troll and Flame" would be more descriptive of what actually goes on in here!

I think the new name would attract more posters some of whom might even indulge in both trolling and flaming!

Maybe it should be renamed "Speak only when spoken to".

When you see an obvious attempt to troll or flame...be it from the start or in a sub....don't respond or bow out immediately. My guess is such postings will begin to dry up.

I have posted several new topics that I thought would have been of great interest and I know others have as well. And what happens to those topics? They sink like a stone. Try it yourself.

People LIKE to argue and bicker and no one can resist the bait. About 95% of DK's original posts for instance have been trolls.

So go figure. I personally think if we turned this place onto a dainty tea party that it would be boring as hell.
