to think there should be a forum where things can be discussed without having to be AIBU about stuff?

So where do you post where you just want a discussion without having to be unreasonable about it?

I know there's loads of forums on here - Royalty etc but they just seem like backwaters and things get lost on there.

Chat's great - but moves quickly.

And AIBU is quite hostile.

In RL - you can have discussions about stuff without having to take a side.

AIBU to think some sort of general discussion forum would be good without the need for all those obscure forums?

Or was that tried and people didn't like it?

I like that too.
It would be bridezilla, cafe incidents, people randomly talking about your arse at bus stops - all that stuff. It would be my second fav after Talking Bollocks.

Yes Pagwatch this is all very exciting. I think 'Talking Bollocks' would be my top 'go to' topic followed by 'WTF'. Perfect. grin

Ooh and a Boasty Topic.

Pagwatch Sun 28-Jul-13 16:16:12

Boasty would be brill.
No need for coy 'can I have a small boast...' stuff, just 'fuck yeah. My dc is a genius.FACT!'

Pagwatch Sun 28-Jul-13 16:34:23

My brilliant ideas never excite people as much as they do me.

I am creating the TalkingBollocks chat room in my head. All alone.

I am clearly not appreciated in my own lifetime.

MNHQ - are you listening?

I would love a WTF forum.

There's no unreasonableness about it.

I can see so much traffic.

Serious side - far too many forums (fora?)

Just keep it simple.

I am clearly not appreciated in my own lifetime.

A prophet is without honour...................... etc.

Yes, I so wish the amount of topics could be cut.

magimedi Sun 28-Jul-13 17:36:19

Pag there was meant to be a grin in there!

Pagwatch Sun 28-Jul-13 17:58:56

grin

I would love a talking bollocks section. It would be my natural home.

Aibu is generally too shot putty (meant shouty by autocorrect Is on the button there) for me

WTF for days when pmt is in charge

Amazeballs.

Ooh we would need a <klaxon> section too. For PA and sporners.

Apparently MNHQ might be revamping the topics.

Suggestions?
