I don't think chatrooms are the answer
Sorry. I thought the Thread title was a bit of a give away.
it IS a dating site... not a debating site.
The Rules make it clear that the Forum is a debating site. It specifically does not allow the type of List threads such as you describe as "fun threads".
Having a separate forum for more "fun" topics would reduce the moderator workload
I really do not see that this is the case.
Is there anything we can actually do about this?
You can e-mail Admin, but I think you would be wasting your time.
