    Boring Company? I don't expect VCF will start defrauding the taxpayers!

    Are we talking about the Arbys thread? I loved the Arbys thread....

    Agreed, to be honest I never really noticed it was in the Rants section. We should bring that one back.
    Actually is it possible for the moderators to pull that whole thread and stick it in a different section,, it was pretty tame for the most part.

    Anything off-topic really. Obviously some topics couldn't possibly end well, but in most cases good topics go bad not due to the topic.

    Well in truth that thread must have escalated quickly. I remember it quite quickly turning to a discussion on landlines and Big Bell, then a negative clinton comment, then it was gone. I honestly didnt see what happened.

    I'm fine with the rants being gone. I was fine with it staying too, but that's because I try not to take negative opinions on the internet seriously. The internet and a degree of anonymity make it easy to shed restraint in what you say, and hinder understanding between people. I think it's good for people to have an outlet for their rants, but perhaps the internet is not the best place for it.

    I did not even notice that subforum vanished.

    I don't like to see any content inaccessible - including deletion. Would rather it still be visible but locked from new posts.

    I disagree in this particular case, but I respect your opinion quite a bit, so "Rants" is visible now - but locked. (The offending thread is not visible though.)
