Is there a way to separate issue discussion and debate from the internet dating service that has sprung up in the forums? One bb I know of separates the Foro Libre (Anything Goes) from Amistades y Amor (Friendship and Love).

If you go in to All the news you'll be able to avoid the more flirtatious topics.

Click on Index, above, and then select from the list. Or, on the home page, click on 'FULL INDEX' or 'JUST THE NEWS'.

Kind regards

The problem with that is that only administrators can start a topic in "All the News".

that's because what's considered "news" isn't up to just a random poster's opinion.

and since the local is about swedish news in english, it would probably require the local's editorial and news staff to make that call as they are in sweden and understand, speak and have access to swedish news.

That, of course, is why I'm asking for the separation of dating service and issue discussion.

So why are all the "dating" threads in the Anything Goes section?

I have two issues...

A. Flirting is one thing having a whole "dating service" like section is another, 90% of those flirting are in no need of a partner Starting a separate section is a good way to ensure an empty section.

B. Topics are not mandatory, flirting is not mandatory, one needs only ignore it and stay on the topic or ignore the thread alltogether. And indeed it is called Anything Goes. Not "Anything Except for Flirting Goes". :roll:

If your that desperate to keep others away then why do you want a dating service? I take this as an attack on the flirting that has gone on on the thread I started sex or maybe the Mugshots on which I also think has been full and informative. The people with parteners here arent looking for someone else with a bit of harmless flirtation. They are looking merely to enjoy themselves. I havent heard such nonsense since I heard someone sued their neighbours for smoke that came in through their window.

Oh wait that was you too wasn't it? :twisted:

Oh and to The Local was it really completely necessary to respond to this?
