Honestly, I went through about five rounds of this in Doctor Who fandom 20 years ago, there is no online community that won't end in civil war given enough posting

Hard to disagree, really.

FUCK OFF, IT'S FINE

Fucking morons.

I agree with what you say, but I don't think you should be allowed to say it.

indlovubill - 26 Apr 2022 20:45:51 (#5 of 24)

That's the problem, you can't start an argument without the thread police turning up.

Mumsnet ends in uncivil war.

It's all Brexit's fault!

I blame Mrs Thatcher.

I started in GUT in the 90s and here we are, after a fashion, still going. How long does it take for the civil war to break out, do you think?

There have been a few schisms AFAIK but they haven’t actually killed off the talkboard.

The Thread of Misunderstanding (2000)

Genoa

The Feminism Thread

Corbynistas vs Centrists

The Great Flounce was a civil war to a degree.

HouseOfLametta - 26 Apr 2022 23:07:52 (#17 of 24)

I still don't know what that was about.

Mazzarin - 26 Apr 2022 23:49:45 (#18 of 24)

One factions of feminists and sanctioned trolls vs everyone else.

After the mods refused to purge all opposition to them they walked away.

HouseOfLametta - 27 Apr 2022 00:06:08 (#19 of 24)

See?

Still no idea.

Ebadlun - 27 Apr 2022 00:10:46 (#20 of 24)

It all happened on a thread most regulars probably never even read.
