Most of these threads seem so foreign to me as someone who lives in Manhattan. Seems like experiences are so different in NYC depending on your borough of residence. And since this is a vast city and the boroughs are very distinct....maybe there should be sub forums in addition to a general forum where knock-out games and other silly things like trollish race wars can be moved to.

Can't you just skip over the threads that hold no interest for you, like everyone else does ?

It's annoying. Too much clutter.

Exactly. This seems like a terrible idea.

Usually, sub-forums are a good idea, but I think, in this case, they would just end up being more chaotic, with repeated, multiple posts in every sub-forum about the same laws and political issues that affect all of NYC- it'd be harder for people to read, going back and forth to keep track of whether someone mentioned something in the discussion already or not.

Think of it as an opportunity to learn something, as opposed to remaining stuck in your tiny little bubble of a life.

Good points, and many of us live in one borough and work in another.

Mr Don should be given a subforum of his own on CD if he is bothered by clutters. It does not cost many bites to do this, does it? Do we have to argue over others' personal choice?

There is not enough threads about Queens, Brooklyn, etc for each to gets its own subforum nor should there be an outer boro subforum for same reason. In fact, there is inactivity in the other New York Subforums, less enough to warrant eliminating them.

Borough divisions are not very relevant for most New Yorkers. There are neighborhoods, and then there's the whole city.
