Sorry, I know this is going on for a while and it's not really just about that thread, it's really the principal that that kind of thing is good for the community so shouldn't be seen as trivial
Maybe another issue is that for some reason things can be quite quick to turn into arguments here, I have no idea why really. There are random threads on another forum I frequent, but they usually just progress randomly and end randomly without any confrontations or anything.
Oh well, who knows, I guess there isn't really much else to say but I do think it'll be a shame to see little pointless fun threads all end up jailed just because a minority of members can act in an inappropriate or unnecessarily confrontational manner. C'est la vie I guess!
