The 911 forums have become quite stagnant of late, both mods and users have expressed their dislike for the current fashion of arguing, with threads
taking huge detours and often resorting to petty bickering. I feel that I have been responsible for some of this, and I have previously attempted to
come up with better ways of discussing 911 that don't lead to this conclusion.
To that end, I think a productive discussion would be to select five issues which are universally agreed to be the biggest areas of doubt, denial,
contradiction or anything else which would disprove the 'official story'. Once this is done, we could perhaps petition the mods to unsticky some of
the older and less useful threads, and sticky 5 specific discussion topics that are strictly for single topic discussion.
I wonder what people think of this, and whether anyone has a suitable list of 5 topics already prepared. I think it would be quite an improvement to
stick to a single topic in each thread and the mods could take significant action to ensure it remains topical.
Here is my suggested list of topics of discussion. Please only post your thoughts on the list of topics, rather than any debate over a specific
. I really don't want this thread to become bickering as well
- How hot were the fires?
- Was the fireproofing damaged or defective?
- Could the fires have affected the steel?
- What would heating the steel have resulted in?
- Can trusses cause the exterior colum bowing?
Obviously these focus primarily on WTC1 and 2, I'm not sure whether I would include WTC7 in there directly or save it for its own special topic. It
seems that there are questions that are shared, and some that would be unique:
- Can beams walk off columns?
- What would happen to columns left unsupported?
- Could the core braced frame of WTC7 fail?
- What would be the failure mode post horizontal progression?
