Choose your words carefully so your efficiency score will remain high.
I feel that social media has reduced a lot of the time we once spent watching television but has not taken over, or even infringed on other recreational activities such as sporting pursuits or hobbies.
Our cyber interactions with our fellow human beings represents a more positive use of our free time and enables us to hone our communication skills and increase our literary abilities.
VIVA SOCIAL MEDIA, VIVA CREATE DEBATE.
I THINK WE'VE MOSTLY COVERED IT BUDDY.
Well, we've addressed some of the problems attributable to the demise of the forum which was once buzzing with heated debates but we haven't identified any definitive reasons why its failure occurred and how we may re-establish the site back to its former glory.
Was site's achilles heel the ease with which members could acquire alts enabling them to ''down-vote'' opposing opinions into oblivion?
Had the site too great a % of participants who developed irrational loathings for certain individuals with whose views they disagreed?
MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW DO YOU THINK WE COULD INJECT SOME VIGOR BACK INTO GOOD OLD CREATE DEBATE?
OR, WOULD WE BE TRYING TO REINVENT THE WHEEL?
Si tout est fini, avoir une bonne vie.
What you're saying is that in the main the nature of people's responses and terminologies should be regulated and restricted to the terms & conditions as defined by the sponsor(s).
In the absence of the existing pre-determined parameters being enforced many participants, me included, try to bulldoze their viewpoints through any opposition by using profanities and mudslinging.
I guess, as you say, that when given carte-blanche, people tend to get triggered, go off topic and focus on personal abuse.
Would it be constructive if we tried to analyse why the forum has reached nadir?
Too much of an unregulated free-for-all.
Interactions involved more personal insults than rational discourse.
Participants just became indifferent to the topics presented for discussion.
I am of the opinion that the subject matters dredged up from a few years ago are of greater appeal that more recent themes.
Keep the illegals coming here to our land of MILK AND HONEY, we'll accommodate them, feed them, give them free medical attention and education while telling our citizens to go and yodel up the canyon for their supper.
When did the loony leftists start thinking that America was infallible and it was acceptable for them to stigmatize the entire nation with their reckless policies of adopting the dregs of the failed nations of the world?
In my books these low-lifes are the worst type of criminal.
I predict that the leftists and Wokes such as A.O.C., THE IMBECILE and his loony leftist handlers will opt to kick the can up the road and try to borrow even more.
We are at a point of borrowing whereby we can barely afford to pay the interest charges on the borrowing sum never mind reducing the gross debt.
People shout for transparency and to be be told the facts, but they can't handle the truth when it's set in front of them.
To start to repay our eye-wateringly enormous debt of $ 31.5 trillion we would have to enter into a long period of austerity, increased taxes and reduced public spending including cutting the crippling benefit handout expense.
Our time is up, it's either shit or get off the pot.
