Hey folks, if you don't like a certain topic, be it music, politics, or whatever, I want you to try something that works great for me - simply not clicking on that topic. Try it folks! It really works. I will now return you to our regularly scheduled program - "Greatist Rap artists of the 80's". (I won't be clicking this one as I hate Rap. See how easy that was?)
Seems to me the fix is simple. Just don't post anything political. I realize and apologize I've posted political comments I should not have. By keeping the Basement to topics of sports and entertainment it should give us plenty to discuss! Someone like Bev would have more interest in the horse breeding section for good reason. But how many members really follow breeding lines of horses? I would venture to say most are into sports and entertainment but I have no issues with ANYONE at UIC.... My point is...with football coming up and baseball winding down to the playoffs there should be plenty to discuss! I hope members who have left will consider coming back. I have no control over the posts here and that's fine because the Stewart's have done a great job imo. I think when you consider how many years the Basement has been around the number of conflicts on an open forum has been pretty darn minimal.
Quick—my point edited was fairly obvious. Some things that way don’t need to be said. I agree with you—if you have no interest in a discussion then leave it alone. Very simple. This area of the site is somewhat strange any more. Bev has it right unfortunately. There is nothing going on here that I honestly need to follow.
Hooper appreciated my edit, and I respect him. Hopefully end of story.
The volume of complaints? How many? 2? 3? The number of members that actually let their emotions appear to be out of control was 1 and maybe a half of another one. To me the major problem I observed was the sudden shameful and unnecessary use of expletives. I might be out of line posting this since I'm just one of the minions and "this isn't my circus and those aren't my clowns".
Hey, college football is just 12 days away! Things have a way of working themselves out. with college and pro football coming up soon and baseball playoffs just around the corner, hopefully sport peeps will head to Spanky's Sports for another season of fun! Fantasy football anyone?
