I've seen a few General Discussion threads get moved to the Soapbox recently. I want to propose just merging the Soapbox into General Discussion. The reason I think that this would be a good idea is that the standards for making General Discussion threads are archaic. They made sense back on old PCF when we had a lot more members and maintaining order was more difficult, but with our current traffic and level of familiarity it seems entirely unnecessary.
Who looks at specific forums anymore. I just click "view active topics". Maybe I click "view your posts" if I want to continue with a flaming thread with one of my PCF friends.
" I'm old-fashioned. I like two sexes! And another thing. All of a sudden I don't like being married to what is known as a 'new woman.' I want a wife, not a competitor! Competitor! Competitor!" - Spencer Tracy in 'Adam's Rib' (1949)
