Since there has been butthurt from "pointless" threads, what would you like to see in the MP forums and why do you want to see it?

More constructive, interesting threads and discussion. Respectful disagreements. Less reality television.

I’d like to see a thread on a recommended first rack.

Drama, lots of it.

I enjoy the threads where everyone gangs up on Tradiban to tell him he's stupid.

Does that mean I enjoy him?

I'd like to see elaborate trip reports that don't tell a story rather tell what took place from a technical perspective. What went into making the trip successful, right down to the nitty-gritty details of why you chose to use x piece of gear instead of y or z because you were faced with ABC situation. I want to know what you were thinking about when you made x decision and how you came to that place. I'd like to walk a mile in your shoes. See what you see. Live in your brain as if we were along for the ride etc. 

Also, more threads where we can win stuff. You know, free stuff from REI.

Speaking of cyberbullies...you got 42 likes with this one, Bravo!

I don't think I've seen a post with more likes so the main vote for content seems to be for "drama".

More topics discussing micro-take culture in hard sport climbing.

Cause some people (or trolls) are actually funny. Shocking isn't it?

I don't think by any measure that could be considered funny or clever. Maybe the troll equivalent of lowbrow humor. The point being that the MP Community seems to prefer the lowest common denominator.

Admins I'm being cyber-bullied. Help!

I seem to remember seeing quite a few likes that one time you were fiercely setup and Rick Rolled by none other than yours truly. Can I assume that post was removed?

I think the "butthurt" is fair.  There are plenty of places to troll and share witticisms.  I'm not sure Tradiban-style threads are the problem, they're obviously light hearted.  But there are folks whose posts I've taken to ignoring, and that's not terribly useful for community building or learning from one another.  Probably sticking to gear deals and stories with lessons is appropriate, IMHO.

Man it feels so good. Now I see why people choose this lifestyle. 

Wait, I don’t mean to say people “choose” to be a troll. I understand it’s not a choice, one is just born one way or the other. Please forgive this sis gender white male.

More neck meat because I'm weak.

More Burchy fighting because it's funny.

Less dogs at the crag.

More of this:

Yes more memes, not sure why we lack them.
