You see why I have him blocked. I had enough of broken records back in the 70s. Has he gone on against special treatment right before demanding special treatment? Or with "if this gets gay I'm leaving"? Or "there's no need to discuss these issues anyway"? And "We should cure the gays"?



Whenever I see that phrase I always think of Charlie Brown. Good grief!


Translated: "I don't like what he has to say so I don't listen."

Well that is all I am asking. I prefer not to hear a bunch of gay talk but do like many other issues. So I just ask the ability to block what I don't like. Why it bothers gays that I do not care to listen to their chatter is beyond me.

5) Very likely some overly prolific poster will dominate the discussion here (don't look at me).

I swear I'd post a lot less if I had a less mind-numbing job. You may notice I post less on weekends, because then I've got better things to do than evade work :P
Donald Trump is a fucking liar

1) The community that grew arund WoV will very likely be split

2) Arranging things like WoVCon, meet-ups, etc will be more complicated

3) WoV will grow increasingly cliquish and intolerant (it already is to some extent, but it will get worse;)

4) By having "off-topic" on its own, without connection to WoV, the quality of the discuccion here is likely to decay


Not quite. But the quantity of the discussion has decayed. This is what happens when you set up a kiddie table. Topics die for lack of interest amazingly fast. How can it be otherwise, when hardly anyone even reads the posts here?

Check. But that shouldn't be a concern much longer.

The Wizard should put a simple "DT" gif (just the letters without explanation) somwhere in the top left or right corner of the other sites with a link to this site.

Example:

"What's this? DT? click.." Voila. potential new member.

WoV members would quit complaining about a low percentage of posts at WoV about gambling and Vegas if I create a new site.

Check.
