Who enjoys the repetitiveness of the CR forums? We always seem to have the same topics show up many times over the course of a month.

I can't even begin to count the number of times I've seen "Is being gay ok? / What do you think about homosexuals? Ok, or not?" / "Gayness -- cool, not burn them all?", "GIRLS ONLY: :D Let's talk about our periods!! yaaaaayyyy" / "Lets talk about our boobs! GIRLS ONLY!!!!!@#$%#$%" / "GUYS ONLY: u care about boob size? why?", threads asking if people are single / happy to be single?, "When is it ok to have sex? When is the earliest I should have sex? Are you a virgin? Sluts?"

I'm sure there are more recurring threads, but these are the ones I've noticed that always seem to be in the little recent post section of the main page.


Basically, I wanted to see if I was the only person who noticed, cares, or was interested in this observation.

Well, since a lot of the members seem to be teenagers, yeah a lot of those issues are going to be recurring and have a common theme. No disrespect to the younger members, it's just an observation.

Think of it as another 2-dimensional form of informative (??) entertainment. Content is about the same quality as cable or regular TV.

I, for one, wish to see new topics pop up more often, instead of those 1,000+ replies on it resurfaces.
You and I both know that nobody reads anything but the last page.

I have to agree with everything you guys have been saying. This is human nature though, we embrace repetition to re-affirm our beliefs

There are plenty of forums in the world. If you're interested in science go to a science forum. For food join a food forum. It's obvious on a cartoon website you will find kids and cartoon talk. If you're truly annoyed by it then that only means you are spending too much time here. Find other hobbies.

i think that topics that don't get a at least 1 reply every week should be removed, we need fresh topics i hate the old ones from like 2010 that have 90 pages of comments but no replies and no one actually reads them

i Do not mind... If the threads may or be repeating for some point your stand on the topic and reply to the thread may change

To those that are sick of the thread resurrections: Well, honestly if you're tired of the threads make new ones. I think the old ones keep resurfacing because there are new people to the forums or returning folks to the forums that find them interesting enough to revisit or changed their perspective about something or just came up with a witty remark they think is worth mentioning... IDK. But it's just a fact of life with these forums so if you want it to change, change it.
