Same here. I already asked why people wanted a spam section so much, and I got a very nice explanation. As nice as it was, I don't see the point. Of course, I don't know how "epic" these spam threads were since I've never participated, but it sounds like a whole bunch of arguing over nothing to me, for something that only like, two people want.
I don't see what's wrong with the general discussion/chit-chat thread. I don't see how personal bonds somehow are stronger by a magical spam thread.
All joking aside, if they want spam, take it somewhere else.
