I have no access to TNZ so I have no knowledge what is behind that wall.
Consider yourself lucky. The stupidest thing I ever did here was access that "forum".

If I had the ability, I'd ban myself from it.

For several lifetimes.
If there's one thing I noticed about the TNZ forum (And it goes well with the "Old Misc" feel), it's how cliequy it's become. I go in there and notice if you have an ounce of conservativism in you, you will be blasted as a troll or something. Heaven forbid anyone post anything in there that talked good about Romney (And I thought there were good aspects about him).
While it's true, there is a much more liberal bent in TNZ, I don't think you're exactly being fair to everyone who posts in there.

Mitt Romney was a liar and a scumbag. It wasn't that you weren't allowed to go to TNZ and post about him. It was that the majority of the people in there already knew enough about Romney to have formed their opinions on him and in an election season as contentious as the last one, of course the vultures would start circling. If you want an actual, fair, academic discussion about issues or politics, it can be had in TNZ if the stars align, but it's by no means a guarantee, and certainly not when it comes to such hot topics as the last election.

Also, there was one time when that Troll thread actually pissed me off. I had a thread in here (Misc) and got blasted for it in the troll thread.
Is this about that time I complained in the Troll thread about how whiny you sometimes are? I thought we reached an accord privately about that?

Putting that aside for the moment, the fact that you're not supposed to talk about what happens in TNZ out side of TNZ, and putting aside for the moment that you're completely ignoring the entire purpose of the Troll thread, you might have a point but here you are, whining again.

I didn't say it at the time, but if you're going to blast me for something, do it to me, not go run off to your "safe" forum like a coward.
Well, not that I agree with you at all that it is cowardly to use a thread in a secured forum for precisely what that thread is designed to do, I'm responding to you here because that's what you seem to want. Hopefully you'll take that in to consideration with whatever reply you choose to offer to this post.

There are things I miss about this forum but there are some good threads that pop up every now and then. I noticed for me now it's if I'm in the mood to post, I will really post. Most times I just lurk though.
TNZ is the Misc of old, but with the practice mitts removed. Mr. Laser Beam nailed it on the head when he said that you really just need to know how to argue your point well in TNZ. That's all. If you can't do that, then of course you're going to dislike it because it is, by design, no-holds barred in there. What was it Q said in "Q-Who?"

Q said:
If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.
Just my two cents. Your mileage may, of course, vary.
