There's certain topics that just can't be discussed on the internet because people on either side will start defecating violently all over it, ensuring that no discussion can take place.

I'll add as a note that this IS a worthwhile discussion to have, about the general nature of the boards.
Contentious boards do help set the tone for the site and can attract attention from other sources.

Whatever your feelings may be on the topic, it's always worth considering.

As far as the UM board goes, before it was created, we had a board for discussing modern warfare, tactics, equipment, TO&Es, AARs and paint jobs. It was the modern board.

Today, with the UM board, that's still where all the gaming content ends up.
I always figured UM was mostly created so people had a place to argue about politics and for the CNN style news links to get segregated and from that perspective, I must admit it's been mostly a success.

About the Ultramodern board... It seems that the above-mentioned board is causing some problems. Folks are having a difficult time behaving themselves there. While some might very well feel otherwise, I think we could do without an Ultramodern board, or a Current Events board. Or any other board that has to do with goings on that are happening just now. It just seems that too many of us get too emotional over such.

Maybe we should have a poll about this.

At any rate. That's what I have to say on the subject.
