I'm not saying you have to stay on topic here. (I mean, if that were a rule, we'd have closed down years ago.) I'm saying you're being disingenuous if you're trying to claim that your involvement in this thread has been about a discussion on the industry. (Your last comment on this subject was "If this is the level of incivility that justifies a thread lock it's simply not going to be possible to discuss anything of any import regarding the industry." Dude - you weren't discussing the industry - you were adding to a general level of hostility here that makes ME tired... and I'm probably the most patient reader this forum has.)

I was disappointed that this place has gotten so combative that even NARCOGEN feels comfortable coming in with a cheap shot, and not much else until I threaten to shut the thread off. That's all.

I quit Facebook because my country's politics are like this. I used to come here to escape from the constant fighting. But it's here now. And that sucks.

(Geeze this post of mine is a downer.)

It's going to be a long 2020, and I'm going to stop that point there. So... here is a broad brush statement that I'm about to make; It would be unwise to expect fresh water from a sewage pipe. I direct that at no one, but only to actions. Made again, and again, and again.

I've already made a post about this, so I might not need to say much more. I think there are those of us here that have taken what you have built, and the kindness that built it, for granted Wu. I don't know if I have a solution of... well... that you'll like anyway. If the kids can't play nice with the toys, they lose the toys. Make it Destiny only. Or ban the topics the bring such ire. Or add permissions to accounts/ a reputation system/ Quarantine thread (which would be the soft ban) and make the main forum invite only. I hate this. It's some cast system bull. Yet I also grow tired of mucking through the bull myself. The egos. The selfishness. The fight for the last word. The sheer lack of self discipline and discourse. You know... classic human shit no one is immune to, but some of us seem to imbibe into far to readily. Drop of a hat.

Yet such ideas presented requires more implementation then ya want to do right? Then you should have to do. To a point I agree, and I can't blame ya. I don't want to blame ya. What are you going to do Wu? Nothing? All this will pass as it does, but if that's what you're going to do - can you complain?

In recent reflection, the discourse here seems two fold. First, as a reflection to the Health of Destiny The Game. If there was more to speak of in Destiny, we would, I think. In the down time though, it's all being filled with classic antagonizers with the illusion of discussion. Economics & Systems, Politics, and "Your Mother is so fat". Second, many of the old voices have gone silent here. The social pickings have lessened over time.

Why do we have so many (by my count 759-sh) people signed up to this forum, and yet we see so few? How much of that provides clean water?
