    It seems over the last few years, the number of (at least in my eyes) ridiculous threads - often in the Current Affairs section - are just taking over the forum like a plague. Even just on the top threads that show up now while writing this:

    - Do you think subjects like Drama and Media should be abolished?
    - Should white people pay black people money for unpaid work from the days of slavery?
    - What's the point of emotion if we all die in the end?
    - Which facts would you disbelieve in if it was against your religion?
    - Why is homosexuality being rampantly encouraged?
    - Women will always be less successful than men.


    I mean this is just a few titles that stand out, but is this really the kind of nonsense that TSR threads are becoming now?

    I'm all for debate and discussion, and I know there are some young teens on here, but lots of these threads are just ridiculous - some of them I'm sure are created just as attempts to rally up hatred on others.

    I'm sure it never used to be like this!
    What's wrong with the top one? Media serves no academic purpose and Drama should be something you do in your spare time if you enjoy it. I would say the same for Art and Music.

    So, I was inspired to have a little look back in time....



    :erm:

    So, I think I agree with Captain Jack - TSR is pretty consistent, but as you change and grow older it feels like it's changed.

    This is just unbelievably right. :five:

    Ban the no-bridgers, you know it makes sense. Plus, all the threads would then be about coffee shops in tabtown and Cowley Rd, which would be just the best.

    2005?! :awesome:

    You must at the very least be our longest serving bear, but I suspect also one of the longest serving members of any kind of mammal.

    Who is the longest serving member, out of interest? Captain Jack?

    Holy. Crap. The nostalgia. :eek:

    Although, it's quite sickening to read some of my posts from 2003. Admittedly I was 13 at the time, but I'd still go back in time and kick my former self in the crotch.

    I absolutely butchered the English language as a teenager. Capital letters and full stops had no chance.

    But yeah... as nostalgic as that was, let's keep the past as hidden as possible.

    I bloody miss some of those old school members though. They're awesome.
