1. It can't end up like the Mature Discussion Area. *sigh* That was horrible.
2. It kinda defeats the purpose of a family friendly site. XD

It was fully, painfully, ignominiously stupid and a fine example of why the world is in the state it is in. The very worst and the very best of the forums arguments, fights, spats, friendship endings, flatulence...it was the end all black hole for political or religious arguments packaged as semi polite discussion and ending in "Well, clearly you're just not intelligent/mature/experienced/old enough to understand me OR THIS TOPIC". Or the ever popular "If you *actually* understood what I was saying ('pompous brat' implied) you'd agree with me. Because you disagree, CLEARLY you don't know what you're talking about". And let us not forget "You're just a conservative because your parents are, brick brained monkey lump" or "Empty headed liberal that believes whatever the news channel feeds you".
Ah yes. Combined with the, gratefully dead 'current events' forum, it encompassed a large majority of opinions on incredibly 'relevant and important' idiotic/unneeded conversations that ended nowhere and usually started there too, amazingly enough. Any kind of 'srs face' discussion (it degenerates the term to apply it here) was placed in there to...discuss. It either ended in verbal violence, screaming 12 year olds (or self-superior 27 year olds), or someone claiming everything was a matter of opinion and reality was subjective.
It was, in short, the reason I gave up politics and now try to burn down the system and smite all who support it. *twitch*
...you probably think I'm kidding.
I assure you, I am not. O_o
Though for the record, it was not intended to be such a place, and CCGR specifically, multiple times, lead a mighty charge in an attempt to redeem it and turn it into what its name implied. In the end, it was a like a Necromorph infested space station: there is no reclamation, only burnination to save the universe.
And this post...only scratches the surface. If it was scratch-n-sniff, you'd barely catch a whiff. Soooooo many members left, or filed complaints, or got grumpy because of what happened in there.
