I think we should have a poll to establish a new board.

The Drama Queen Board specifically for those who have gotten their shorts in a wad and feel the need to publically announce they are leaving. This way they will have their own safe space where they wail and rent their garments pubically with their fellow travelers.

1. YES, the snowflakes need a safe space.
2. NO, I don't care, just leave already.
3. Whatever.

Wow! The tone in your proposal leaves me wondering……..

Maybe it could go next to the Spelling Tutorial board.

Snowflakes never die, they just melt away in a huff.

That said – bring back BME!!!!

"rent their garments pubically" is actually pretty funny. (Not a jab at you, SM. Hasty typing can produce some good ones, though!)

Unforunately, my computer is a horrible speller. I will make sure it checks the Spelling Tutorial Board daily. grin

1- it will make them feel better to proclaim their reasons, otherwise 3.

4 a YES if these leaver threads makes some members uncomfortable then best to let them have their own Safe Space so they can easily avoid them :)

It would also create a useful 'customer satisfaction' area for Bill to revive handy feedback.

So what exactly makes them "snowflakes"? And why do you think anyone who announces their intentions is a said "snowflake"? Would a "real man" say nothing? Like you did? Oh wait, you said something. Or what exactly is the opposite of a "snowflake"? I would give my own opinion on that last question, but I'm sure I'd be put in the DH & that is not my intention. How bout 4. Just don't read crap that you have no interest in. I think that would be the best answer.

Ceterman19 May 2017 11:34 a.m. PST

Oh & BTW Dave, I like your figures a lot. I had a bunch of them back in the day. I don't do ACW anymore really but if I did, I'd buy them again.

3. Whatever

Or maybe just rename the Talk About TMP board…

Ceterman19 May 2017 12:02 p.m. PST

Well said Norman, well said…

3. Whatever

Sometimes the goodbyes are full of entertaining comments and/or drama so they are always worth a read.

5. I wish I could find reason to be offended so that I too could find some relevance from which to hang my life.

4.5 We need a poll to decide if we need a poll?

Cyrus the Great19 May 2017 8:58 p.m. PST

Well, first of all, The Drama Queen Board will shorten in the popular parlence to The D Q Board and I'll be thinking ice cream or maybe, a Blizzard.

Or what exactly is the opposite of a "snowflake"?

It is,of course, the manly, hairy-chested, wargamer. (TM)

Hard to say which is worse, those who leave in a huff or those who get in a huff over those who leave in a huff.

Khusrau20 May 2017 4:34 p.m. PST

I propose a poll….
1. Anyone who uses the term 'Snowflake' gets DH for politics
2. Anyone who calls anyone else snowflakes gets doghoused for not being able to accept criticism of their own obnoxious behaviour
3. Using snowflake gets you dog-housed for shutting down debate on offensive behaviour
