Chris, you sir are a fucking moron.
It is a discussion, meaning both sides would be presented. I have an opinion too, sure, but obviously I'd never implement it if the majority of the members disagreed. After I've personally spent hundreds of hours on this forum, it stands to reason that I'd only want the best for it, and developing any functionality that would regress the progress of the community would not be acted upon by the staff. Putting it bluntly, go take your Midol and use some common sense.
I personally like the idea, but as the members don't like it, I'm retracting my suggestion. If I was at all like you made me out to be, I'd have ignored everyone and acted instead... but that's not the case. This community has always been by the members, for the members, which is why I created this thread of discussion about a new potential idea in the first place. I frankly am offended by your above posts and would greatly appreciate it if you took a step back and approached your arguments from a more objective stance in the future.
