Members-Only "Grievances" Forum

How about a forum that is completely exempt from the rules that apply to the other forums; kind of a no holds barred section where members could air their grievances with each other and get their frustrations out without spoiling the threads in the other forums. Members could scan the forum and give their opinions of what their perspective is about what's been transpiring and perhaps defuse a situation with some "neutral" points of view. Opinions? Good idea? Bad idea?

I don't understand.

What problem does that solve?

Some may find it helpful for perspective or therapeutic in releasing some frustrations.

Why not have a place where you can freely and openly voice your thoughts without the filter of political correctness or the threat of being banned?

It doesn't have to be made available for viewing by non-members.

Interesting. Why can't people do this on their own? Why can't they solve their psychological problems are their own?

Political correctness? Thats junk. Is that one of the rules here?

hmm. I guess people would take advantage of this. To make personal attacks.

Personal attacks are not good.

Rombomb,

It would be completely voluntary, you would not be forced to participate. You can ignore it. It would be useful to those who find the usefulness in it. I don't think the availability of such a forum would be detrimental to those who don't wish to visit it, or to post in it.

But I guarantee you that it will develop a massive viewership. People love to participate at least vicariously.
