The Current Event forum should be renamed The R.I.P Forum

RIP Current Event forum but your time has also come.

What the heck are you talking about? Just because there have been deaths doesn't mean that the forum's gone by the way side.

Clearly you haven't gone or checked the percentage of thread titles in the forum for the last few years.

So? What's wrong with there being news about deaths? I just don't get where you're coming from with this.

I'm with Bubbly here. That part of the forum is when i actually find out about deaths. I think it's fine how it is.

It doesn't Always have to be deaths...

Other than religion and politics, you can put any kind of news there.

Exactly. Yeah it's been infused with a lot of deaths lately, but I don't see the problem with it.

How about we add to the title instead?

"Current Events -- Now With 80% More Death"

I once suggested, eons ago, that there simply be one topic for all celebrity/notable/whatever deaths. But I believe the response was that the topic creation in that portion of the board would all but die if that happened.

Can we rename the current event forum to the sexual harassment forum?

I don't think so.

Even though that topic is currently trending, I don't think that warrants a title change. Besides, I think it will only predominate other topics/news momentarily, if not for a little while.

It will be hysterical from the outside point of view.

But from the point of view of the modern climate, as well, in general, it's a bad idea.
Not that I think anyone will try to do something like this. Or can they...?

Nah, you guys have been much better about that sort of thing in the last five years or so.
I don't think it requires changing the forum name now.
