Deep dark hidden reasons only a few know about.

 

 

 

 

 

Ahh, so it has something to do with your anus?

Really, really awful idea.

 

I would never have bothered if that were the case.

 

It's important to allow new blood in and I do think the discussions we have with people with different opinions are fun, even if they disagree with us.

 

By making it invite only, you'll cater to a much more select crowd, which is not a good idea.

 

a thousand times this.

 

the most critical part of achieving a balance in perspective is a free and open dialogue. any kind of bias - in this case a password, which is, quite literally, a bias against people who won't bother with the password and will just move on - could potentially eliminate substantive input in the dialogue. as much as the forum is filled with bitching and sheer idiocy at times, it's a unique medium where people with vastly differing worldviews and experiences that have shaped their similarly differing ideologies can provide insights on complex topics. i would hate to lose a nanuq or a gospodin or a g5 or a mav, because (1) ideological extremes allow one to find perspective and (2) because ideological clashes force one to do research to combat (or bolster) arguments, which results in personal and communal growth.

 

i have personally grown immensely from engaging in discussions in the tinderbox and it would be a true shame to deny this experience to others. zod i hope you'll pull the password as it's detrimental to  discourse.

SZ has a mad thirst for power.

I should make him the mod of the suggestion forum to calm him.

Now that Philly is here 

We can get to the root of this password business.

 

You mentioned huge sweater puppies were in peru.

Share a pic with us and the password leaves.

You have 24 hours or the password changes again.

 

 

We are sorry it has come to this, but tittys can not be ignored.
