    Kill the execution thread?

    On other forums I have seen threads on the death penalty, guns and a few other contentious subjects get rather messy, as zealots of all persuasions come out to play. Is it what Thai Dreaming is all about?

    Kill the execution thread, I say.

    What say others?

    This poll will end in three days.

    Perhaps if/when it gets heated then would be the time to kill it and not before. I don't see anything contentious being said at the moment so it would be a shame to see the forum mods close it down based on a knee jerk reaction.

    I would say that this is one of the things, hopefully , that keeps TD a bit different, and hope it doesn't have a topic that someone would abuse. If it goes that way, we have the very best in Mods and they will as usuall, do an excellent job.

    I agree that it is entitled to go along until it gets unruly, we could have a reaction to any thread, Lady Boys just for an example, and then we may loose a lot of education and enlightenment if we were to shut it down, but mind you if the poster's are not respective then yes shut it down but that really is the job of the Mods.

    By the way I saw it on general TV.

    I don't like anyone to suffer unnecessarily be it a person or an animal, Ian Forbes and I have pretty much covered our veiws and methods in another thread, quick and dead is our motto.

    I agree that most of these subjects would cause those sort of things on majority of Internet forums.

    But TD is unique, and has a pretty good immune system when it comes to controversial subjects for a couple of reasons. I was first drawn here because of Thailand, but the reason I've stayed and continue to post is because the forum is populated by fairly mature and pretty intelligent blokes who are frankly a good cut above the rest of the herd. In addition to that, many board members have actually met and know each other in real life, which goes a long way towards curbing unnecessary dung flinging. You'll find these things out more and more as you continue to post here.

    But that being said, we argue all the time. About all sorts of nonsense. Who really wants to be part of a community where everyone agrees with each other? That's called a cult.

    And when it comes to controversy and any heat it might cause, I think that's far more related to individuals and their personal levels of tolerance towards emotional subjects. In which case all you have to do is not click on the thread again. It baffles me when people complain about certain subjects in threads as if someone is holding their head to the monitor and forcing them to read it.

    So don't worry too much about this sort of thing here. I know your intentions in wanting to remove the thread. I've seen good communities split apart and die over nonsense too. Just trust that the people here aren't overly emotional or fanatical enough to resort to personal attacks. BMs here constantly make lighthearted fun of each other but I've not witnessed anything that has made me dislike anyone here.
