    I saw that on an American parenting forum. It was pretty funny but it caused a lot of bullying too

    I would like one too.

    People often learn valuable things from debates- even if they're not involved in them.

    While there was a few direct attacks and some name calling from *that poster*, it's was generally an interesting thread.

    Interesting idea, but then what happens about trolls?

    I thought the other thread was interesting, but once someone starts posting rubbish just for the sake of stirring the pot then there is no longer a debate/ conversation.

    It's a shame those threads get removed. I'd prefer it if the offending party/ troll got warned/ removed from the thread.

    Also, how would you stop bullying? So, if I really annoyed someone then they could effectively offer me "outside" by going into a flame section? And if I said no, then they'd go in there and post mean things about me?? *starts sniffling in anticipation*

    Could be fun but I don't think BH will be up for that.

    Haha - I run away scared of the flame section!

    (Every now and again darting back in to see if anyone is being mean about me behind my back...)

    It is a shame because I think threads like the Pauline one can generate some interesting discussion. I was interested in hearing more from the other side of the debate, but the pot stirrer said some things about a specific group of people which were just revolting, so I wholeheartedly agree with the mods decision in closing it.
