Idea: People should only be able to start a new topic once every 2 hours!

    Any1 thinks this is a good idea? Since there seem to be some problems with some people who make like 20 threads in 15 minutes?

    It would never fly... but while we're at it, why not put these rules in place:
    Only one topic per day
    Only 50 words per post
    Nothing religious
    Nothing political
    Nothing hetero
    Nothing depressing
    Nothing with pics
    Nothing personal
    ....and the beat goes on.

    I don't think the rules you say are comparible to the rule I brought up

    Actually, dear friend, I was trying to make a point. I agree that lately a certain individual has gone overboard with starting new threads...some of which are just repetitious, to say the least.
    My point is...who is going to moderate a rule like this?? The admin. has enough on his hands just keeping the "flamers" under control. And that appears to be a losing battle.

    Ridiculous. No one is putting a gun to our head forcing us to read each and every damn post. If someone has the time, energy and dedication to open a thread every second, let it be. Maybe he'll even become the Guinness World Record holder for the most forum posts in one day.

    I think RJ should have a second verification system that verifies the lack of stupidity before posting in the forums.
    But of course, that would eliminate like 90% of the stuff here.

    Your post reminded me of a line from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, when Bernadette is driving the bus:

    Bernadette: ...I'll join this conversation on the proviso that we stop bitching about people, talking about wigs, dresses, bust sizes, penises, drugs, night clubs, and bloody Abba.

    Tick: Doesn't give us much to talk about then does it?
