    I've been really tempted several times to start an "East-West appreciation thread".
    No discussion about any conflicts, just people saying things they appreciate about other cultures. I've lived in the west most of my life, so I've got plenty. I'm sure other members do too.
    However I always hold back because I see trolls from both sides turning it into a total ****show within 5 pages.

    Get a mod on-board for some vigorous policing and then go for it. Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Well if any mod reading this would be up for the extra job, drop me a pm and I'll set it up.

    My Father in law was Russian, one of the nicest people I've ever met.

    Especially extremely dirty work. The ban hammer is used judicously in those threads, trolling to the max and frustrating bias on both sides.
    I think a thread to share views and find common ground would not only be lost on this type of poster but a lightning rod to post insulting remarks.

    Already, it is starting to sound more like a trap. Digrar's flypaper for the forum blowflys...

    The more people used Facebook at one time point, the worse they felt the next time we text-messaged them; the more they used Facebook over two-weeks, the more their life satisfaction levels declined over time.

    If you'd be down to ban some trolls, I have time to start the thread this evening.

    Divorce is waiting for me when I get off of deployment, woo!

    My choice though, so all is well.
