It's a duplicate thread. There's already a general chatter thread.
This isn't general chatter for the whole planet. I personally hate EE chats because there's so much shit in there that means nothing to me.
Talking with people from my own country has a lot more relevance.

It's your guys' precious thread that you're dying to keep open.
It's your guys precious attitude that wants it closed for some obscure reason. Jealousy perhaps? Fuck knows, it makes no sense why you waste the time.

That's like your opinion man. People can discuss whatever they want to discuss so long as it doesn't violate forum rules. I think the Real World Facts thread is a waste of space, but it's not a duplicate and doesn't have NSFW content in it, so it should be left open so long as it doesn't violate forum rules (again).
Fuck me. This is the point I made you tried to refute, and now, in the same fucking quote,
you attempt to make the same point. Hypocrite much?

I don't participate in drinking and driving but it still affects me and I have to watch out for those people. I don't participate in dumping oil into the ocean but I can't go swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.
That is the most absurd rationale I've seen at an attempt at an analogy to make some "point" I have seen in a loooong time. We're talking people discussing stuff via text in a sub forum. Not risk of death or catastrophic environmental disaster.
A better similie would be for me to argue that I have to put up with drivel like what I've responded to your good self, sir, but I put up with it regardless.
