We now have a new subforum under general discussion, it is called Adult Discussion. This is a group for members only.
To apply to join this group go to profile>modify profile>group membership
This is essentially the same as general, but if there's news events, serious discussion about a sensitive topic, and so on, that wouldn't be appropriate for the much younger forum members, that's where it should be. Of course there's not an actual age limit to it, so by adult we're judging on maturity level and nothing else.
Note: posting in adult discussion doesn't mean that the section is free from the rules, because the same ones apply. Anyone trying to skirt the rules, or spam nonsense in a topic there will have their access removed. Also members with very low post counts do not need to apply, as you will be denied.
