    just because the majority agree on an idea doesn't necessarily make it the right idea. in this case i'd say the escapism for the GWC is the thing that should be tackled not the advertizers...as long as there's the escapism for the advertizers to tap into it will always happen.

    Do you fight the fire which is already started or do you prevent the firestarter from starting the fire?
    There's just no way to fight a GWC's escapism. No one will even admit that he's a GWC for you to start with, but we can control what is being advertised, right?

    Actually, in a privately owned forum like CS, a majority is not needed, just the direction of the owners and those who shape it will matter and this don't have to be base on majority. Basing on majority may not always be a good thing.

    yqt you know its funny that this place is a community of thousands...but only like 30 voices at max have been speaking out about this topic...even the original ts like bo chap liao. so a small sample of the community here doesn't make for enough outrage at the way the organziers are advertising.

    Nope you have to do what the police and govt do...set up Geyland, Petain Road and all those wonderful places for some release. You can't stop it but you can control it and limit it. Sometime you don't control or confront the OKT...you can also influence the customers or the "bed workers" eheheheh..... there is always more then one way to get around a problem.

    But are the comments valid? Does it warrant some form of respond? As a forum we can all voice our comments and as a privately owned forum, it's up to the forum owners and the people running it to decide which way to go. If everything must be a BIG enough group or the majority to comments, die liow lar

    Ok, let's do that. Set up a private sub forum and we put you in charge

    i'm not asking for majority rule but it seems like NO ONE cares if its only like 5 same people talking about a subject. that or no one else is as prudish as the ones who've been saying its bad

    I have been busy with work. Not Bo chap.

    The very reason I started this is because I cared for the forum and its development, like many others who have put in their 2 cents worth.

    Its not about destroying free markets nor mod-bashing nor censorship. Its about giving a heads-up for the forum to ask if they are going in the direction that they want.

    fair enuff about being busy...but unfortunately only a few voices have spoken out about what you said is the direction of the forum...and i stand by what i said 5+ voices do not make a representative sample of the entire community of this forum (not counting the mods).
