Plus RoG hates drama over there.
Correction - I hate drama in both forum areas. I just enforce it more in the article and blog threads, because myself and the other writers spend a lot of time on our pieces and don't want the discussion about them getting cluttered up by people arguing with and insulting each other.
I still don't like it on these forums either though. It's a comedy web site and when so many people have emailed me with complaints about how the forums aren't receptive to new users, it's not exactly a good thing. The old "Newbie Beatdown" used to be far more lighthearted, creative and fun for all. These days, it seems to be more abrasive with the intent to make everybody hate certain newcomers. I usually tell people who've had to put up with that shit to stick to the article and blog discussions since people don't act like dicks in those areas.
Of course, I'm only talking about certain areas / people on the forum. There are plenty of discussions on here that are perfectly fine and open for anybody to join in and have fun with.
