Kinda like duplicate threads that are kept in different forums become different threads?

No. Not like that at all.

You are the one who wants more forums, Chris. I don't dissagree with you, but dont turn around and say that i'm the one who wants to add more forums. You lost major respect points here. Hypocrits rate very low in my books.
I never DID say that you were the one who wanted more categories. If you thought I did, then you read me wrong. I'm the one who wants more categories.

Chris you are the only one in this forum who lets others decide what you believe in.

What does this comment have to do with this thread? I have a new idea for a 'smilies' icon that I'll post on the other thread: a trashcan... for comments like the above.

SPORTS is fine, but ENTERTAINMENT is not a forum in which i would post my deepest passions about. Music may be nothing more than entertainment to you Chris, but to me its closer to God than you will ever be.
H3RM3S - don't turn this thread into this kind of discussion. Take HW's advice and stay out of the discussion if you feel another urge to post irrelevant and untrue garbage because you feel like being an asshole. If you want me to respond to this, I'll start a new thread in RT vs IB and post there. We're not talking about God. I know music means a lot to you, and to some people music is something deep to connect with. I understand that... but you have to understand that we need to cater to the average, here, and the average person (on RSS, now and in the future) doesn't seem to share in this with you. I don't see why you have a problem posting your "deepest passions" in ENTERTAINMENT but you don't have a problem if it's "THE BOOM ROOM".

You read my comments and somehow felt that I was attacking you, but I wasn't - yet when HW says he doesn't like the BOOM ROOM and when he says that maybe you shouldn't be part of this discussion... I don't see you getting in his face at all. Are you upset because I said music is entertainment???

It was a joke.

That wasn't advice meant for me. That was a "suggestion". And all HW is saying by it is he's heard enough of me. That doesn't mean i have to stop posting. All it means is he may not care to read whatever else i write. However, i doubt he'll stop himself. Also it definately means that he wants to read other people's opinions.

You know, pming me is a great way to get your suggestions noticed, especially with all the debate going on in this thread.

and secondly, if you do pm me, don't forget that you also have to show why we need any new forums if your suggesting a new forum.
