A meaningful forum ought to exhibit these:
1. Authors or writers or posters ("parties or party") to convey their messages in whatever forms permissible except to be monitored for abusive slangs or lingo or expressions. If any party calls "names" at another, then this whole idea of a forum is as good as thrash. Therefore, parties ought to aim at or stick to the TOPIC or SUBJECT of the forum being posted; and therein, any party can argue or fight it out or respond with more reasons and / or disagreements which should be the aim or purpose for all other “listeners” in this world to participaate as well. It is the sole responsibility of the party to accept criticism from others of the subject matter or topic introduced with grace, else it is just a waste of time.
2. CD has to be the umpire with ability to stop -----fights among parties if "names" were called, else the aim or purpose of the forum becomes meaningless, entirely.
3. The expression “Author”in the column is not right because not all of them write or create their own stories or subjects but were directly copied from other sources. Therefore, it may be better or legally acceptable to use the word, “POSTER” instead in order to prevent any legal suit or embarrassment. If the topic or subject was copied, then it must be referenced to the original source(s) as a way to respect the real authors or sources.
4. Technical errors of this "advance page setup" exist such as "sorted and unsorted" bullet points do not work like MS Word. Second error noted is the merging of words when imported from MS Word format. Please make these formats totally compatible. (**Note: I had just edited and parted merged words.**)
