Limit amount of thread opened by users?

Hi,

I come to you because I know many posters are frustrated with the amount of non-sense that is posted daily on this forum. There are a few posters in GM who constantly open useless threads for their own personal amusement. I also think the same thing happens over and over on Non-Tennis. A handful of posters open threads about "news" on the same topic on a daily basis (topics like racism, or gay rights) and it becomes overwhelming and certainly annoying.

Has it been discussed the possibility of limiting the amount of threads users can open? Or maybe open "mother" threads for certain topics?

We have a US Politics Thread, and all other pertinent new threads are merged there. Why not the same for topics that are constantly being opened on a regular basis?

Thanks!

This. I'm all for race equity but do we really have to hear a story every day about how something racist happened to some black children. Especially when the overwhelming majority of this forum is not racist.

I don't see as many ones about gay rights though, but there are a fair few.

I like the idea of a sub forum for these.

Especially when most of them are not really racist. Like the one about the Obama float where people where complaining about his two terms and a pack of posters decided that it was not possible for the people to complain because they were unhappy with his government, and that it was only because he is black

Re: Limit amount of thread opened by users?

I know, that group of posters can get overly exaggerative sometimes, sometimes these things just happen, not just because they are black, as these apply to whites too.

Omg, that thread. Though, to be fair, it was a different poster who made it, and they stated they didn't think it was racist.

So by the sound of it, you're upset that there are so many threads based on race and gay people etc...

...but you actually go in said threads and by the bolded part, it seems like you go into quite a few of them. You read not only the article, but the responses as well, furthering your agitation.

Might a better suggestion be to simply stay out of them and focus on the areas of Non-tennis that you may actually enjoy? (Same argument for GM really)

Because even though these things are important to you in particular or something you don't experience on a daily basis, that doesn't mean they aren't important to someone or that these topics aren't worthy of discussion for whoever's interested. It just means you probably should move on down the list to a topic that won't cause your blood pressure to rise.

First off let me just put out that there that I am a gay hispanic male. So right off the bat people know I'm not racist/homophobic.

The reason why I go on these threads is because I truly enjoy having an intelligent conversation over this important topics. I love seeing how people view things and it makes you gain a new perspective on things. However it becomes an issue when new threads are created on a regular basis with the same posters implying the same things over and over and over. This is why I think it would be appropriate to have one thread where people can discuss racial issues, other for gay rights, and so on.

With a statement like that, there's no way you could ever be expected to have an intelligent conversation.
