68. People who are complaining about this should have been here

when you temporarily did away with General Discussion entirely to try to get people to read and post in the topical forums. Their heads would probably have exploded over that! I supported that, even though it was a radical move, and I support this because there IS too much cheap talk in GD (and the Lounge is available for the silly stuff we all need at times.) And the topical forums aren't used as much as they should be.

Cheap talk has become epidemic in GD lately, with an influx of relatively new posters who may be here for the wrong reasons. We need regulations to control it. Without regulations, Late Breaking News would be a madhouse. LBN and GD are the most popular forums and both are fast-moving, due to the speed of news available. We NEED rules for GD, too.

I don't always agree with administrative decisions at DU (too rebellious for that!) and I rarely post to "the admins are great!" threads (too independent ot ornery for that!) but I do agree with the admins over this and (gritting teeth) I think the admins are great! (Well, sometimes.) ;-)
