    More philosophical questions!

    Rather than a rush of opinions on a seemingly endless series of apparent questions...I'd like to see some actual questioning go on--in other words, a few threads where people show careful thought and more than casual interest. Much of that forum at present exists on the order of "what's your favorite color."

    I realize this isn't likely to be a popular stance...but in a way I hope anyone reading this might get, that's the point: quality over quantity.

    Final thought: this isn't something any moderator can solve, but possibly fewer, rather than many more, "new" threads might be a move in the right direction.

    I'd like to read more personal and original thoughts and opinions rather than have books by others quoted at me. I've probably read the book, and if I haven't it's probably because I thought it wasn't worth reading.

    rather than blunt opinions, I would rather more argument. I wish people would argue their position, not say, this is what I think so there!

    more threads about me...

    actually I would think a sub-forum for personal philosophy and theology would be good... rather like the paths sub-forums, only a lot more general... you know, so the personal stuff isn't overshadowed by mainstream or "what colour do you like?" stuff.

    Whoa! I've just realised who Philosophia is. What would I like to see in this thread? More discussion. Opposing viewpoints intelligently argued, rather than people just stating their position and leaving things like that. I've noticed though that whenever I question or challenge some peoples views they just get pissed off which defeats the whole purpose of discussion . . . does it not? So that's something else that I'd like to see. Less touchiness and more interaction. Threads that start off with a bang and then whimper out really do my head in too.

    Agree on the more discussion. Personally, I figure you have to state your opinion before anyone can disagree with it. Perhaps some threads just never really get off the ground?

    EDIT: I would like to see some sort of discussion particularly on ethics, what ethical views align with Pagan principles, which don't, why. Would also be interested in seeing a discussion on the real merit of total nonviolence.
