OK then. Perhaps we need another Forum with a title like 'general philosophy' for 'serious chat' which is not just light banter. There is an essentIal difference between that and the catch-all 'new theories' but both are serious topics.
As for just chat, I think you really only need one or two topics as they all end up the same no matter what the title says. I also prefer to pronounce Just chat in a french accent...because most of it is!
It is a place to unwind, and is (usually) free from posters trying to intellectually outdo each other in order to score points. People take themselves far too seriously.
So we should shift a fair number of the posts on this forum elsewhere, perhaps?
I always had the impression that New Theories was not so much a place for New Theories, but more of a place to house the nutters and way out there people.
Take a look around "new theories", how many of the posts are new theories? Not many, this is a dumping ground for the wackier topics and wackier posters. Most of them know it, but are happy to be able to post and be left alone.
