I have seen the "basement" or the "back room" in several forums, it gets rough and nasty very quickly and the feelings spill out onto the open board, my vote would be against having one.

Most of us are adults here.
Some degree of propriety, civility, respect for each other -
that's what us adults should probably, strive for.
There's always ways to get your opinion across; without having it
degenerate into something else.
All of it's opinions!

Don't think the correct word is "basement" -
how about a "free-for-all", somewhere near the gutter!?!

That would be up to the Admins themselves.

However. At other sites that have such a thing. Members have gotten carried a way with their postings and banned. What is said in a private forum is not forgotten on the outside of that forum. And comes to surface in the other forums. A pile of dog dun is a pile of dog dun weather it can be seen or not.

I wouldn't have a problem with some type of "members only" section.
However, as stated above; stuff that happens there - will "drip" over into
the forums!

one man's trash is another man's treasure. it seems to me that it's in the mind's eye as to how one sees things.

you know I'm not one to back down from a fight, not from anyone, but after the fact it is only up to me how remorseful I am, and I usually always am and show it, say it. I can't accept responsibility for the faults and discretions of lesser men. if you as a moderator can not read between the lines then there is no hope for us.

you're my friend, bt, an adult one. thanks for debating this with me. see how easy that was?

Who sets the rules? -
The "Admins", "moderators".
Simple!

"Ban" me?!

Probably, ain't going to happen!
(Note: I said "probably"!)

Who's going to act as the resident, "clown"?!?

Great!
At least I can hang with a "distinguished" group!
(More than I can say for a few people I've run into, here!)

Present company - excluded, of course!!
(You know who you are!!!)

Interesting "dawg"!
However, I think you're starting to skate on the "proverbial" -
"thin ice"!

That twern't no gol' durn, 'lectronic slap -
(I ain't into none of that "new-fangled" 'lectronics, stuff) -
That was a tap on the shoulder.


I did save it to Notepad, though!
(There's a few of us laughing right now!)
