Sorry folks, but the Open Threads have ran their course and won't be happening on BE anymore. If any are fanposted, they will be hidden. I realize that a bunch of BE commenters like them, but they've become more trouble than they're worth. While we always try to foster the idea of "community" around here, this place is about MMA first and foremost. And it's going to stay that way. It's okay to discuss off-topic stuff sometimes, especially if it doesn't derail comment sections of posts, but these open threads took on a mind of their own. Our moderators are better served looking after actual MMA posts, and there are plenty of other places to take your non-MMA discussions.
I realize this might not be the most popular decision, but it was made in the best interests of Bloody Elbow. Hopefully you can accept that and continue to be pillars of the best MMA community on the web.
