CA: Common Topics

Unread postby Rhiannon » Mon Feb 17, 2003 7:03 pm

Current Affairs has some very common topics that pop up. Even with moderators working to prune the forum and keep it a bit clean, there are still a number of pages of posts that you would have to go through as a member to see if your topic has been posted before. I have made this general common topic list so that you can identify some major issues without creating another thread. Take a moment to review these threads; keep in mind that some issues have several smaller aspects that have been tackled in multiple threads. Please also understand that this is not a comprehensive list.

Please, before you post a new topic in Current Affairs, make sure there is no topic in the forum already on the issue. Also, please do not be afraid to revive a thread, even if it is on the last page. If we didn't want it to be replied to, we would lock it or remove it from the forum. Revived threads bring about great discussion here and help simplify the forum.

If you have seen a topic that deserves to be in this list, please post a link to it in this thread. Please note that current stickies are not in this list; they will be placed in here if they are de-stickified. Mods feel free to edit and add to this list as needed.
