sometimes, people run the course of an argument in one thread, take their ball and go home, to then search for a new trigger to be triggered. Generaly it's the person who was losing the argument in the previous thread.

It seems like every time I start a thread in the People forum, the same thing is posted (usually repeatedly in the same thread)...
"I don't care what celebrities think."
To me, that's like writing "I don't care about cryptozoology" in a thread in the cryptozoology forum. The people who are interested in cryptozoology already know that most people don't care about that topic, why waste people's time by pointing out that you're one of the people who doesn't care about the topic?
I find that behavior to be rude. Imagine if someone posted "I don't care about rants" in a thread posted in the Rant forum? Wouldn't that be insulting toward the person who posted the rant?
If you don't care about the opinions of celebrities, why not just stay out of the People forum?
Does anyone who doesn't care about cryptozoology post in the cryptozoology forum? I suppose some debunkers might. I don't understand that behavior personally. I don't even see the point in trying to debunk something you don't care about.

One would think that if you are going to cite someone's views, they would have SOME sort of expertise or knowledge about the subject on which they are opining.
If you are into celebrities this is the place for you. The People Forum is the place on the Above Network for news and discussion regarding the famous and infamous.
Before starting a new thread on the People Forum please keep these things in mind:
1. The People Forum’s description on the board home page reads like this, “Discussion Topics About Individuals Both Famous and Infamous.”
In other words this forum is for the discussion of celebrities. Any celebrity news, gossip, rumors or chit-chat belongs here.
