rydjorker121 has a point. I'm not against deleting the flame wars, especially if it was vulgar enough to cause an ejection. Feel free.
On the other hand, I don't want to smother the freedom of members to post news stories/rumors because the possibility of repetition. I don't expect everyone to read every thread prior to participating.
The solution is to have one prestine category -- a news forum. rydjorker121, as soon as you are ready to build it full time say the word -- pm me. I have a few other volunteers prepared to assist on a part time basis.
Call it from Heaven Chick.
