Why have a “Corner Bar” forum ?
It is unnecessary. There a plenty of forums on the Internet to discuss politics, current events, poetry, pretty girls, etc., etc.
This community portal is based upon SketchUp and its uses. If I was to create a phpBB site to discuss CAD (and I was toying with the idea lately,) … I definitely would NOT add in a “any subject” or “Corner Bar” type of forum.
Doing so opens up the possibility of hate topics like those recently posted in the SketchUcation “CornerBar” forum. I have been greatly disturbed by the filth and hate , such as reposting of terrorist propaganda and anti-semetic trash.
Most shocking of all, it was posted by those who operate SketchUcation !
I no longer have respect for these people, for misusing SketchUcation in this way.
I have turned off my “Top SkechUcator” badge, and severely cut back time on SCF.
Which is why I am here on the new SketchUp Discourse site.
