The whole idea that the ones starting a thread should have control of that thread would mean only harmless peaceful threads or threads with only one viewpoint in them would exist in short order.
and the other side of the opinion would need to start their own thread, which would happen, so it would be like we have in America where the Reds and the Blues are self contained and self congratulatory, but America keeps going down the shitter because we can never work together and form either the consensus or the temporary alliances required to move the ball down-field. The beauty of A2K is that it is one of the rare places where different kinds of people still get together and talk. We used to have a vibrant and civil enough society that we could do this fairly often , now we can't. This failure to perform will never cause the intolerant puritans to consider that maybe that are not far superior to their ancestors as they claim to be though. By God, they prefer equality of the different genetic models of humans, so arn't they special!
I see nothing good to come from making A2k more normal, which means limited by police action. What offends Idiot Bill is that his bullying has failed to shut down the conversation that he does not want to happen, something that his kind have largely succeeded in doing through out the mainstream culture. We are the worst for allowing these weak people to invoke offense and thus control the rest of us. The proper thing to tell Bill is to shove off if he is not interested in the subject, or does not like the people who are talking. No one is holding a gun to his head an making him associate with demented folk like you and me.
Obviously I am assuming that most people are more open minded then Idiot Bill is, and that they are strong enough not to melt if there ears should happen upon strong language, that their will and souls are strong enough not to crack in the presence of flawed humans. Oh, but if I were the God idiot Bill takes himself to be!
