I saw that the “Ripped from the Headlines” forum thread was closed, so I wanted to bring up an example of the kind of thread that would fit more neatly into a current-affairs forum than in any of our existing fora.
I mean … you could start such a general discussion thread in IMHO or MPSIMS, and they may stay or be moved depending on the way the discussion moves. I guess someone could also Pit the bridge failure. But I think such a thread is a poor fit for any of those fora. The disaster certainly isn’t pointless … and I agree with the poster from the other thread who mentioned that IMHO has drifted into a “opinions about personal issues” forum.
Dunno … what do others think?
