without going into long and meaningless discussion why... one and only reason is enough:

This forum is for General Discussion of <u>IL-2 Related topics</u>

I think it is right that people want to remember what happened that day. I see your point, but I think it kind of overrides that don't you?

It's not so much that you're wrong, as it is that you have to understand that these forums are a community! Sure, it's for and about IL2 & FB, and it seems like 90% of the chit-chat that goes on here is about that, but as long as there are people with different viewpoints and perspectives and most of all opinions, we all have to accept random conversations. Moderation is required to keep these boards mostly in line, but let the people speak! Especially when it concerns an incident that effected such a large number of people.

Freakishly, Edin isn't saying that people shouldn't remember what happened on 9/11, he's just questioning if this forum is the right place for such things.

no I understand that, but it affected alot of people, and I think it should be remembered. just out of curiousity, why is this only IL-2 related?? All the other ubi forums have off topic as well.

Why don they just re-open Pilots lounge if they want posts like that, OT posts should be closed

I am not looking to argue. I guess I am just used to other forums, and it isn't like it is a pointless thread about spamming up the board.

its no point in closing the off topic forum and let off topic discusions go on in the IL2 GD forum. IIRC PL was closed becouse of the bickering during the Iraq war build up, its time to reopen it!

What's the problem?? U think first page is messed up with 9/11 threads?

Or are you the long lost mod-brother or...?

Please leave the modding to those who been doing it for years.

I`m gonna put myself out on a limb here and agree with the poster. I have already posted my condolences and what happened was terrible. My heart goes out to all the families affected by this terrible event.

But this place is becoming rapidly filled with 911 threads. I would like to go back to IL2/FB subjects. The mods need now to moderate.


Guess I`ll be burned at the stake now. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Do you relize that some games WW2OL for one have gone so far as to completly change there main page as a sign respect for those lost on 9/11?

What does ubi post on 9/11?

Some crap about there new shnazy logo lol.

Do you self centered jerks relize that the twin towers were packed with people from many many different nationalities and nations?

in one trip to NYC you are sure to meet people of different nationalities than you would in 10 trips to foriegn nations

Maybe when the day comes that you all relize they attacked the free world that day and not NYC itself youll understand
