think that when you are banned for a britney/beyonce threads. -Let people berate each other. -It shows that they do not have much going on anyway. If its a GaGa vs Christina. vs. Britney battles (Other than jokes. Who takes it seriously) - That is pretty redic. Other then that. It' is fair game.
But no really. I actually think the "moderate" banning and the thread-closures don't hurt this forum too much. It's a pretty active music forum. I do think that people should be allowed to practice free-speech. But not target anyone personally. (Like in a violent manner)
