But there is a difference between talking about a topic, and having pages of endless arguments about the same thing, where nobody is ever going to change their viewpoint to agree with the other person. It's just senseless.

Personally I have no problem if people want to talk about politics, or global warming, or even if the earth is flat or not. Just try to keep it rational and avoid arguing just for the sake of it. It doesn't help that most OP's set up their opening message to incite arguments, rather than with the intention of actually caring about other people opinions, and more importantly accepting that they are allowed to be different.

Perhaps CP could do with a design overall with regarding to how posts are displayed. Rather than having every single comment and sub-comment visible, just have the root post visible and then it doesn't matter if a topic has 1 reply or 1000 replies, people can easily skip over and ignore the crap that they don't care about and find the posts that do actually interest them.

EDIT: Just seen I guess that is basically "thread view".
