Who would rather see this place without the Dude/Doc vs Blob/IN flame war?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Does the flame war keep you coming back or keep you away?

Who would rather see this place without the Dude/Doc vs Blob/IN flame war?

There appears to be some subtle resentment of the ongoing debate/argument of certain groups around here. I am a little suprised and would like to see how people vote on it. (and no MCB isnt the only reason...I've read this before)

Anyway my personal opinion is that i find is funny as fuck and probably come back way more often to catch the latest while also enjoying the more intelligent approach to analyzing our team/the sport.

I like fishing.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I doubt the casual observer wants to see 2-3 pages of every thread degenerate into the predictable shitshow, so I'm be more than happy to dial it back.

Then again, I'm equally happy to keep calling out the zealots for nominating Benning as a candidate for the presidency of Mensa Canada.

The war is fine.... except when it isn't.

We need more wars of the length of your garden variety January Uprising or Crimean War, and less horribly long conflicts like Vietnam, or the Hundred Years war.

Doc and Dude are like Al Queda.

Probably both wear filthy linen gowns

As a mod, I'll admit the 'flamewars' make my job harder - but as someone who has been on this board for close to 20 years, I know the level of hockey talk is better than it's ever been.

While you might have to skip a few posts to get to the next 'real' post, the side comments give the forum some character, which is lacking in many, many other forums.

Summer is upon us, and off topic comments are showing more frequently as there's little to talk about. So relax, have a beer (or whatever your relaxant of choice is) and join in - or scroll past - your call.

Things will tidy up again in the fall.

Drink of choice.

It became so popular that that have to stop making it as they do not have enough stock to make more. It will be a few years before they make it again.

Been drinking it for years, have 1 bottle and I allow 2 fingers a month.
