    What really grinds your gears *SD EDITION*

    New members who create a thread, and then get lambasted because there was a similar thread 2 years ago..

    Chill out, it's not like everyone should have to do a full on search every time they want to ask a question or make a point..

    Rather ironic really telling people to "chill out" having allowed ones gears to become ground by something so trivial.

    People who start threads that try and convince us that not all Islamic people are terrorists.
    They seem to pop up every couple of months, and end up some big argument about the trivialities on the Qur'an.

    In regards to those that start said threads, We know. Were not a bunch of racist hicks, we're all racially and religiously tolerable. Cant remember any instance of racial abuse on here from regular members. Preach to the unconverted please, rather than start a nitty bitty argument where both sides are fundementally arguing the same point, just bickering about finer details.

    In fact, i'm gonna go all out, and include all threads that descend into religious debates. Sour CW IMO, avoid them like the plague

    Mods reopening a closed thread to pass comments on the goings on in said thread and then closing it again. Unprofessional, imo.

    A mod doesn't have to open a closed thread to post in it.

    That's beside the point. Mods continuing to discuss things on closed threads which other people can't post to IS poor form. If you've got something to talk about a closed thread for, talk about it in the Moderators' Forum for crying out loud.

    Just a trivial thing for people to needlessly whine about, for mine. Like this whole thread really.
