I do as well, considering that it's mainly a place for venting frustrations.

But if you say in a post in Politics and Government, “I’ll be in the Angry Dome” and don’t make a thread or some other post about it in what-was-once-Flame & Burn, will people call you a liar? ;)

If they don't they should be liars.

F&B contains 4 types of threads:
1) Actual flaming threads
2) Ranting about politics
3) Ranting about family
4) Sort-of-not-ranting about family, and asking advice
5) Threads pointing out how I just pulled this classification out of my ass without even checking.

"Angry Dome" would cover 2&3. 4 can move to CC (should, actually), but 1 are still going to be there, and I'd be hard-pressed to find a better title for that than "Flame&Burn". I'd rather see P&W being repurposed for simple ranting (it kinda is already, for religious issues)
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

Whilst Yla is right that "Angry Dome" probably doesn't fully cover the full purpose of F&B, I still vote yes because I find the futurama reference amusing.

While I like the idea of re-naming F&B to the "Angry Dome" I do share concerns that N.De Plume came up with as a lot of posters say that in response to a thread or post. Then again renaming forums is up to the Admins' discretion. As for personal stuff, I think I will make the suggestion that any personal threads (stuff about family, school, advice, etc.) should be moved to Confidential Confessions as even though F&B can't be seen nor CC, I feel that it is appropriate to move such threads to CC.

I think one should be able to distinguish between just grumbling about being in the angry dome and actually posting something in The Angry Dome.

Yeah, my point was meant as a half-jest. Though it could honestly confuse some folks not already familiar with the usual phrase.

I, for one, prefer "Angry Dome" to "Angry Multiverse."
