    Can we let the posters in particular threads decide if they want a sub-forum or not?

    To me creating the long-thread based subfora in FFA or FCM for that matter, would just exacerbate the whole exclusionary cliqueishness that has defined those threads. At a certain point, you're either part of BigSoccer or you need to create your own website.

    The alternative is to just set up shop in somebody's personal forum. Heck you could even chip in and pay $30 membership to get a personal forum for the group.

    No personal fora ;)

    I just don't buy that argument. Anyway, wouldn't putting them in someone's personal forum be even more exclusionary?

    If there are subfora on FFA, people will pop in to see what the deal is. But if the threads are buried in someone's personal forum, the threads will wither and die because they'll never get any new blood.

    What she said.

    As for any clique-ishness, whatever. It's free association. There isn't a lock on the door. The only real requirement is that you not be a jackass. Hell, even you post in there from time to time, so please step down from your newly-found egalitarian pedestal, ok Andy?

    You can, however, be a shrew. That's okay. ;)

    That's not a nice name to call Andy.

    I've freely admitted that I post in FFA long threads. But I'm still entitled to my analysis, opinions, and suggestions, aren't I?

    Apparently being an unfunny dick isn't a barrier to acceptance.

    I like this. Some threads get to be way too long. I'd rather see more threads with less messages than the 800 post long "club summer transfers thread" stuff.

    Shrews are rodents, not birds.

    Somehow, I think it was a weird reference to Liz Taylor.
