    Remember that place where us TrekBBS members could talk about sensitive stuff? I only vaguely remember why they shut it down; something about too many flame wars going on. Just curious, how many of you would like to give it a second try?

    It's still here. Go to your User CP >>> Group Memberships >>> Neutral Zone to join up.

    Cue onslaught of people who never go to TNZ posting about how much everyone there sucks in t-minus 10...9...8...

    I lurk in TNZ, but I rarely post. Too much random flaming for my tastes.

    For the recent British and US elections, TNZ has been the best place to get discussion on what's happening.

    Don't go there. It is a silly place.

    Spoken by Aurthur himself (Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference).

    You can still have an intelligent discussion in there but it takes a lot of patience. The same thread you do here can be done there but it will be triple the length. For every intelligent response there will be at least three responses that consist of substance-less flames, the juvenile response of, "Fail" or pictures of, "Ceiling cat watching you masturbate."

    Trust me tkron, you'll get far more intelligent discussion in here. Squiggy (the patron saint of TNZ), will probably be unable to resist a reply which will prove my point.

    TNZ is the best forum on Trekbbs, not because of the flaming and personal attacks, but because no one has to cloak their opinion or hide the depth of their insanity.

    The pointless flaming and such is just the price we pay for that openness.

    I lurk in there from time to time, especially when elections are nearing.

    They're knights of the TNZ table,
    They flame whene'er they're able.
    They post routines and Robau scenes
    With swear words impeccable,
    They pine well there in Camelot,
    They say "damn" and then they spam a lot.

    They're knights of the TNZ table,
    Their threads are formidable,
    But many times they're given lines
    That are quite unquotable,
    They're oh so mad in Camelot,
    Because there are no mods a lot.

    Flame wars are tough and able,
    Quite undefinable.
    Between their posts they seek the most
    Of thread bombs and shows made dull,
    It's a busy life in there a lot,
    They LOLz and RULz and SUX a lot...

    TNZ never got shut down. What gave you the impression that it had?

    Well, it was shut down for a while, then it changed names and now it's cloaked. I can understand the confusion.

    I didn't know you could join it as a user group, either. Not that I actually tried to find out, mind you...:p

    But apparently I'm a bit of a masochist, so I joined... Pure curiosity, I swear.

    I was thinking about joining out of curiosity, but ultimately decided against it. I just don't care enough about debates. I'm much too lax and often leave in the middle of a conversation - good or bad.
