    We all like BHW and each one comes here for various reason, but in the end no one really comes here for dating advice, or sexual tips and like politics is supposed not supposed to be discussed here these two need to be banned as well.

    Another topic like Depression is a grey area which many will feel it should be allow, but I feel let’s not allow it only to be about depression as none of us are health expert’s, you’re in depression and want to find work then let’s talk on how you can set up blogs on it and make money from it.

    Sometimes threads are funny and sometimes they’re awful, and yea yea freedom of speech is good but anything that’s abused needs to be stopped. At max we may loose few dating posts guys, but majority will be happy.

    I propose let’s make a final list of topics that do not belong in the lounge, and lastly let’s change the definition of the lounge not everything belongs there.

    over to you guys do you want more informative threads on your homepage or do you want more unnecessary topics popping up again and again.

    I think the increasing amount of dating topics is a big conspiracy by the banji hotline man :D

    Sometimes people legitimately get help from unexpected places, and while I think some of the stuff posted seems to just be trolling/drunk, if there's someone who comes here asking for advice on personal things maybe it's really the place they think would be the best to get answers. Or maybe they don't have a lot of resources to get help, and are just looking to offload and talk to someone. Worth considering. Then again, it's a money making forum, so there is that.

    Good to have clarity always. Surely there would already be such a list?

    Even though BHW is predominantly an IM forum and a lot of people are strictly interested in this, forums and communities are 90% of the time places where people come for enjoyment as well.. not just serious chats. While some posts are garbage for sure, some are lighthearted and completely nothing to do with IM, and I'm sure there are a lot of members that really enjoy being able to come here just to chat shit sometimes, and then learn a bit about IM too. Gotta be careful to balance censorship, incase too much changes the vibe of a community.
