When is the above forum coming back? It's been offline for ages now.
Surely its popular enough, this website is to generate discussion, you need forums for that.

    It was not the discussion that was the problem it was the people reporting the discussion that cause the board (and others) to be closed.

    There are 1130 pages of discussion, dating back to 2008.
    What changed to make moderation impossible?

    This site is not moderated, it operates on the knee-jerk reactions to reports,

    Read the blurb at the top of the board, that explains why the board was closed.

    Yes, I have read that. But that was March last year.

    Sounds like it was closed because people couldn't behave and were reported or that people reported trivial things by being easily upset, causing too much work for whoever manages the reports.  If that's really the case then it doesn't sound like a discussion worth bothering with.

    What better forum than a money-based one, to discuss the economy. They have DIY, but they won't let people discuss the economy, it just seems bizarre to me

    Months ago, they just refer to what it says on the forum itself.

    I am sure some of the mods read this section. It just seems strange, you have a money orientated web site and the forums help the site generate traffic, makes sense to discuss all aspects of money, not other stuff.
    Have you seen how much money is being used to prop up our economy in the form of QE, 10 times more than in the 2009 crash  :)
