Everyone, thanks for your replies, and the consensus is tended against.
I understand that ATS is a family friendly website, and just got the newest system wide U2U from Springer.
The title of the OP is inappropriate, as per your responses, but it would take a slew of brainstorming to come up with a good forum title.
A forum request that covers tragedies such as Sandy Hook, but leaves room for other events that have occurred, or that sadly enough, probably will
occur, is what I ask. Sandy Hook threads are being created in several different forums, and there's no coherent way to catch them all. I admire the
mods for keeping up with them all. The humble request is still a forum dealing with random acts of violence. The travesty is a trend in individuals
killing other innocent people. What is wrong with society, that we produce individuals with such a mentality?
What is wrong with a conspiracy website that addresses EVERY aspect of a tragedy? Nothing, at all, save the posting of personal information, which is
against the T&Cs. Surely, we can continue our discussions without blatantly violating people's personal information.
Earlier, I requested SH threads be moved to RATS, safe from the google spiders, and also from people from outside our community here that are
searching for information. That wasn't really a good idea, as it blocked access from newer members and the rest of the internet. It would've
worked as a way to keep private information private.
Basically, I have no solutions save a new forum, with a set posting requirement, to allow discussion about SH and other tragic events. Membership has
gone crazy on the topic, and I can understand why the owners are clamping down on this subject. The threads are too hard to follow being in several
different forums, and the leniency in what is allowed as a post has stretched to a non-viable limit.
Difficult topics never have easy solutions. I have said my piece.
