A debate section
« on: 16 March 2019, 09:28:40 PM »
I'm thinking it might be wise for the admin to add a section for these debate type threads that keep cropping up. They are starting to take over slightly and the actual bike elements of the forum are getting lost amoung them.
At least if they are all together in one place then people know exactly what to expect in that particular section of the forum.
I personally don't bother with then as I feel they are more a ground for argument then actual sensible debate but there is no denying they can turn into a bit topic so there needs to be a place for them

Also I honestly think they need moderating as the insults are starting to lean towards personal attack.
There is no problem 'debating' a subject but once it comes to personal jibes I think that's going slightly too far.
At the end of the day we are all here for the things we have in common not our political views, we need to make sure it stays friendly 👍👍

They're fairly easy to spot if you want to ignore them. They are all in the 'General' section and have obvious titles.


It started off with Brexit discussion in another subject thread. Brexit affects us all as bikers - insurance, driving licence permissions, changes to bike regulations etc. Quite a few of us tour Europe and it was clearly relevant. Then it wandered, so thankfully somebody gave it it's own thread.
Then somebody started a thread about Jihad Brides. God knows why, just to provoke argument I think.
Then during a discussion about visiting holocaust centres, somebody turned it into an argument, when it wasn't.


I'm expecting somebody to pop in here any minute and start arguing  :rolleyes

Is that the five minute argument or the full half hour? :pokefun

Personally I stay out of things like the BrexShit thread but if theres stuff that needs reporting to the admins, click on the "report to moderator" link on the item that needs reporting and myself or the other admins will take a look.

I do sincerely apologize for starting that Brexit thread lesson learnt wont do it again. Didn't mean it to be taken seriously just a wind up that got out of hand.
