Re: If i started a new forums similar ADDForums,

mildadhd: It seems to me that Fuzzy is really on to a good thing with her very last comment. When you have posted discussion threads here in the past, you've often been dissatisfied with how the discussion proceeded out of your control.

On a discussion forum, you aren't supposed to be in control. It's supposed to be a free-for-all that goes in all kinds of different unexpected directions - that's the point.

If instead you were using a different format, not a forum at all but something totally other, where the expectation is not a discussion among equals (like it has to be here) but one speaker and many listeners (like a blog or a personal web site), you might be more satisfied with the results.

Postmodernism, the school of 'thought' that proclaimed 'There are no truths, only interpretations' has largely played itself out in absurdity, but it has left behind a generation of academics in the humanities disabled by their distrust of the very idea of truth and their disrespect for evidence, settling for 'conversations' in which nobody is wrong and nothing can be confirmed, only asserted with whatever style you can muster.
