Thread: What's the difference between the different taverns?
We have discussed this earlier:
Website News > Forum Rules and Policy (Bread & Butter)
Website News > MISSING THREADS?
And some other places I don't remeber.
That's banned too in some places; it can get quite heated! Speaking as moderator on a board with a special "Boiler Room" forum where those topics may be discussed under a very tight set of rules (keep debate civil, critique ideas not people, etc), it takes a special sort of moderator to monitor those threads and administer verbal valium as needed. Having such debates changes the whole feel of a community.
And that last is something you may not want.
At any rate, thanks for untangling my confusion!
