Not an issue as such more a question

Is flat earth discussion not allowed on this forum? I notice a lot of the threads are locked.

 

 

'Flat Earth' is a very contentious and divisive topic and from my experiences discussion of it is very polarised and just results in the worst kinds of trolling, baiting, bickering and arguing.

 

That's the reason those threads here ended up being locked.

 

While I would prefer such discussions were kept elsewhere, if someone wants to start a new discussion topic and be prepared for an honest and robust debate, I would have no objections in principle, but in truth I already know how such a topic would develop and pan out, with the same arguments repeated over and over again.

I understand it gets tiresome

 

It's more than just tiresome as a Moderator. It wastes lots of valuable time and energy dealing with the fallout on the thread and in the reports that come in.. 

 

Time much better spent on the rest of the forum.

This isn't a Flat Earth thread. 

Posting that could invite further discussions. 

We'd prefer to avoid that as stated above.
