Posted:Y'know, I'm not sure if we ever thanked Malcolm for creating this special forum. I think it's great that we have a place to discuss this that is separate from the social section. It allows people to be involved in this issue only when they want to.

And if we did already thank him, then thanks again.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:once again, right on, nyc!!!
if home of poi were stir-fry in the wok, then Malcolm would be the dude with the funny hat that stirs it around so that some bits don't cook too much and other bits don't stay uncooked.
Malcolm keeps Home of Poi tasty.

Tis true, it's nice to be able to avoid this when you want to.

Posted:Thanks Malcolm! You've been instrumental in builing a community here, and especially with current events as they are, it's nice to have a separate section where we can discuss the more heated topics outside of the social forums, and I find that I can even argue tooth and nail with someone in here but be buddy-buddy with them in a different section. So to your credit, setting this section aside has been a great modification to the HoP community, and we are all grateful.

What hits the fan is not evenly distributed.

Posted:It's definitely kinda cool how this forum's turned out. It seems to me that it was meant to be War Topics as in:

'Topics involving the war in Iraq'

but its ended up being War Topics as in:

'Topics that will become heated debates for people that want that kinda thing'

Maybe we should keep it, and call it the Heated Debate Forum, or the Angry Zone or something like that Any time a thread starts getting all just whack it in here so we don't scare any tender hearted souls who are just here for the hugs
