RFD's belong in the debate section called RFD. I move to ban RFD's from all forums.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Ah no. They certainly should not be in main fourm, but they often do not fit in that little RFD box, and in the comment section they often get buried (plus broken up into several comments if they're detailed).

Stick them in the misc section, all that section is now is a montage of x-comment-wins ripoffs and general spam

If people want to post long RFD in the forums why shouldn't they be allowed to? Sometimes people like to discuss RFD and the forum is the best venue for that.

Its ok if people have more to say bout a debate than what the limited spaced of the RFD field allows.

Which president elect is in favor of banning RFD's in the forums?

Sure I have yet to release a platform I can throw that in there. It is annoying

Be succinct. The RFD doesn't need top be more than two paragraphs.

Perhaps for your debates, but some of us have debates with a significant amount of complexity. Not there's something wrong with a RFD being to the point, but you're complaining because you dislike getting too much feedback.

Just sign or don't sign. no explanations or comments are needed. That's how petitions work if haven't ever signed one in the real world. You just sign it or refuse.

I'm not complaining. I am putting forth a petition to ban RFD's from the forums section. They don't belong there. They belong in the debate section. End of story.

That's a problem with voting requirements. If you can't say what you need to say in that box, that's a problem. Simple and concise doesn't mean bad. Long and wordy doesn't mean good.

Sorry to put words in your mouth. I'll leave it to your own words, which insist the RFD's should be 1000 characters or less and unformatted: "RFD's belong in the debate section called RFD"

There's good reasons you're the only person who signed your petition.

Someone telling Raisor to be "succinct" is like someone trying to teach Magnus Carlsen to play chess now.

"RFD's belong in the debate section called RFD" Common sense, it's a curse for those who have it.
