    the current set up is good enough. that is, disguising relationship/love topics in Open Debate and Academia forums

    The answer is unfortunately no.

    Listen, if you need relationship advise, do consult your friends, family, spiritual mentors, trained professionals such as psychologist or psychiatrist or even licensed therapists or social workers. Do not take any relationship advice over the internet given by random strangers because relationship by its nature are private, emotional affairs that could only be understood by those involved or very close associates. You might even consider the fact that the mere postings of the problems in your personal relationships to internet strangers could possibly very well be the reason why your relationship is messed up in the first place.

    yes, the same is true for those who seek medical advice over the internet - your medical history should be private and confidential

    That is also true as well, since thorough and accurate medical diagnosis are almost impossible to get through a medium such as the internet. However, the net is a great source to gather preliminary information about common health problems, health news, prevention information and a host of other useful information related to health and/or nutrition. Nonetheless, to treat a specific illness (other than the common cold) or to get medical prescriptions, it is in your best interest to consult a licensed professional.

    I think people need to understand that there's a lower chance than zero for the relationship forum to reopen. The mods and admin have confirmed this so many times before and I think members should just face it rather than bug the staff repeatedly about it. I doubt the constant buggings will ever change their minds anyway.

    For the past few years, Spcnet has been operating very well without the relationship forum and so...

    Actually, the moderators have been discussing the current glut of relationships-themed topics at the Open Debate Forum and considering ways of curtailing them. There are reasons that SC took the rare and unprecedented measure of actually deleting a forum (the Relationships Forum) years ago. We have been somewhat lax in our restriction of relationships topics as of late, but if the situation devolves, expect a return to more strict enforcement.

    With people like NetDriftr lurking around, I would advise against asking about relationships on an online forum.

    Open Debate has become sex/relationship talk anyway so there is no point, with some occasional political and capitalism vs. socialism issues floating around...

    This should not be surprising. After all, humans are relational beings. Beside the basics of food and shelter human relationships are an intricate component of human natures. Humans necessitate social interactions that are evolved through relationships with others - that is why families are created, friendships are made, and communities are formed. Whether it personal or impersonal, relationships are important to our growths; thus, it is natural to engage in discussions about relationships.

    If the subject contents are productive and pertinent, then I don’t see why it is such a big deal. Granted, spcnet has complete autonomy over her forums. However, sometimes, it is important to extend courtesy ears to her subjects. I was not here during the time when SPCNET had a “relationships” forum, thus, I do not miss it and I can respect SPCNET’s decision not to reopen it. However, attempt to “curb” all related relationship subjects in the ‘Open Debate’ forum is an unfortunate far stretch. Especially, if the contents are relevant.

    And sushi and miso soup! And GODIVA!! With that in mind, I think we should make a new thread for food in academia.

    Spcnet can create that Relationship forum to shut these people up, then make me the moderator of that forum. I'll ban everyone who posts in it. End of story.
