Re: Game thread forum a mess...
Here's a simple idea to reduce the chat-like characteristics of the game threads. How about raising the minimum length for a post in the Game Thread forum?
If a post was requred to have, say 200 characters, a poster would be compelled to include a thoughtful reason why Player X sucks.
If the Player X-hater simply wants to vent, s/he can do so in less than 200 characters in chat.
