In The News section
« on: January 22, 2012, 04:50:28 pm »
I'm not sure if this is the quite the same thing as Vene proposed in his News Ticker thread, but a section for items that are drawn from the news that don't quite fit any other heading would be good.  The thread under P&G started by Damen entitled A Special Hell is what prompted this.  It doesn't fit under P&G but doesn't really fit anything else either except perhaps General Discussion under General Category.

Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.--Steven Weinberg

Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery--Robert G. Ingersoll

Agreed. There are some things that are news that don't relate to religion or politics, so there should probably be a separate section for them.

This. I ran into a fascinating article that started out about PETA protesting spider silk garments, which could be P&G, but which mainly highlighted the difficulty of making the cloth and how the government has expressed interest in synthesizing the process because it resembles kevlar. It's not really funny/amazing so it doesn't fit in the lounge. It mixes too many elements for any one section.

In the News would solve this.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Nah, I was thinking about the thing on the top right that says "SMF - Just Installed!" and replacing it with something more amusing. Hell, even some of the funnier snippets of mainpage quotes.

Sooo... a section for stuff which currently gets broken up into P&G, R&P, General, F&B, and occasionally others..
That's actually not bad an idea.
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

I think a lot of the stuff will still end up in F&B, P&G, etc...but this is more for those stories that either have nowhere to go or could fit multiple places like my spider silk one.

Agreed
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.
