I've also noticed the arguments, but I just don't bother reading those threads. It's a shame though, as many useful threads go way off topic in this way.

I agree with bandidoz that moderation is one way to solve it - we just clearly lay out the rules of the community and then enforce them. Of course, that assumes we can come to a set of rules we all agree on...

I like the idea of the "members bar", I assume whole threads aren't moved there, just the posts that are breaching the "pub test" rules?

If they're breaching the pub test, they shouldn't be in the bar. How about a "behind the dustbins out the back of the pub" forum? Laughing

I've decided to leave the bar, as the once pleasant atmosphere has changed markedly. And I should really be studying more and prepping than hanging around here anyway.

All the best to the old timers.
