    For anyone that's wondering, the place became extremely dead (which tends to happen when everyone is in agreement with one another) and there didn't seem to be a reason for it to be up anymore. Icy and I talked about it and decided to just give the place the axe. Although I don't expect the PoFo to come back here (it's honestly more trouble than it's worth), there are other places that have a thriving PoFo with differences of opinion on the web. I brought up the one at PatsPlanet, but Google may be able to yield more.

    No, I'm not. Differences of opinion and, hence, debate are what drives message boards. We saw it over there. The minute one side left in force, the place slowed then died. This place would also slow down considerably (not sure about dying since there are a lot more members) as well if the forum lost either the homers or the CLs.

    Isn't that better than slobbish conservative neanderthals cheating on their wives with pornstars for years, paying them off and lying about it?

    Harry Boy making an appearance!

    There was definitely a weird vibe going on there, but I had too much real life **** going on to hang around there...let alone continue my role as a **** mod.

    The definition of insanity also described the political forum.. "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

    Sort of... it's actually like, if you can picture this, a forum that featured fans of two different sports teams that are arch-rivals. Nobody's ever gonna switch sides.

    So you have rage and despair at losses, elation and gloating at wins, smack talk before and after each game, some actual news reported, a smidge of level-headed discussion, and a lot of trolling.
