I believe I remembered suggesting this a year ago. Maybe the admins have changed their mind, or Visor can decide, ect.

I'm sure it'd do the community some good to have these two sections unlisted from the recent posts feed. Hell, I even toyed with proposing an idea that these two sections were only viewable if your account had a 50 post minimum. Which would probably be a good idea too. It'd keep the communities smut out of the eyes of potential new people wanting to join the community.

I personally believe the comedic nature of those threads and responses gives new people an insight into how this community actually functions. If anything, they're a public service announcement for how absolutely fuck-all mentally handicapped people on this website can get over the simplest of topics, whether the topic is the admins (Fig has a LOT of love in the flaming section, as I've noticed), some guy named Enderzeit (who I have never personally interacted with), and of course the classic general insults that permeate half the threads on here, including my own resignation thread (and that flaming subforum, and this forum in general, are a huge contributor to my aforementioned resignation thread occurring). All it really does is showcase the absolute idiocy that can permeate some members of this community; I'm not naming names, everybody who is here for more than 5 minutes realizes it, so my personal opinion is screw it, let it stay in recent posts.
I look forward to this post being taken down so that you can continue running a corrupt system for a game that has less teams then I can count with one hand.

The front page has "Recent topics" which does not aggregate the shit forums, and performs essentially the same function.

LooooL, but those are the 2 BEST sections of the site...its where the "magic" happens.

L4d has always been the trolliest game ive played haven't been able to figure out why...possibly because of the nature OF the game?  So natrually the troll aspect has drawn people in and pushed them out, ie the same could prob. be said about those 2 sections. 

The current list of posts is handy and WHEN it does happen to get bogged down with the rapid postings that occur in those 2 sections but ALSO in others from time to time, can be slightly bothersum to QUICKLY find new responses in other areas but it does have that nifty "new post" function that u can use xbye just requires slightly more work.

Dont turn everything into Nazi germany jeez...lets the flames rise eventually they run outa fuel and die, tis the nature of fire.
