My immediate reaction: What's the point?
I mean, these are DISCUSSION forums, right? Isn't that the whole point of these places...to have a place where we can discuss and debate things in a civil manner?
There are already tons of forums here. Adding more is not the solution...it's just shunting the problem to another area.
If people aren't capable of having an intelligent debate with each other without resorting to insults on the forums that exist already, why would having a different forum change that?
If we're not allowed to debate anything...then these aren't really forums, they're soapboxes.
My .002, for whatever its worth.
