This thread asks to solve the riddle of how to fix the problem between opinions on this forum.
If you choose to see a problem, it cannot be fixed. Or you can choose to see no problem. Passion is life, and passion in a thread gives the thread life. If you remove emotions, you remove the life from a thread, and it burns out fast. (That's why we have emoticons). Fuel it with emotion, like in this thread, and the thread is animated and comes alive. Yes, it will veer off topic, and that's healthy. Bottling up emotion is where people run into trouble. Besides, nobody wants to read a lifeless boring thread let alone contribute to it.
For example, I created a thread in the main board in mid 2018, titled "the top 10 super abilities of the yowie". The intention was good - simply load a report featuring a specific super ability. Like, impervious to gunfire, or levitation. Yes, ok, it was a cover for paranormal abilities, but the point is, they weren't first hand accounts, it was all anecdotal, it was relatively boring with nothing to verify, and thus the thread burnt out in under 2 pages.
Wolf and I will simply never see eye to eye. Manfromglad and Johnnyanonymous will likely never see eye to eye. Does it have to be a problem? Nope. Embrace the differences in opinions, challenge other members on their opinions, be creative, roll with it, and have fun.
Throw in a couple of harmless in-jokes. For example:
So wolf, section 134 of the Criminal Code Act has the maximum to be 10 years prison for tax evasion. How many years jail do you think Chris of Masters will end up doing, or do you think he'll leave the debt to his family?
Oh, and how's Agro? Still throwing toddler tantrums and behaving like the real Agro, with a hand shoved up his ass?
Wolf will return suit, he won't be able to control himself. Keeps it interesting.
