I guess I can understand why Jeff wouldn't want to do it, because without the regulars posting in the general NBA forum occasionally, it would get even worse with the trolls and people lurking and not posting would probably split, thus cutting down the traffic.
The thing is, the regulars still post in the general forum on the boxing forum... The hard hitters forum is used for very serious conversations that we don't want trolls to overtake, but that forum isn't overused.
There is a delicate balance that the regulars have to be aware of with something like that.
ISH used to do this way back in the day. It didn't get too much activity but there was always good discussion going on. I feel like it would be way more active if it happened again. Also, can we move the football forum one spot below the OTC? I dunno why it's so far down on the list.
