For those people who are new to message board life....
This is a "general discussion" board. For some shows, we have separate "fanatics" and "bashers" boards, to keep people who like to slam the show (bashers) separate from those who love the show (fanatics). But we've never had enough posting on The Apprentice forums to warrant that (though that may change this year, with the second version of the show). Thus, on this forum, you find people who love the show ... and also people who love to make fun of the show. We expect (hope?) that they'll co-exist without fighting over their different perspectives.
Sometimes that's not possible. But there just has never been enough traffic to warrant two boards for the Apprentice series.
In this case, we have a classic clash between two people with different perspectives. ladro is a well-known "basher." ladydzgner is clearly a fan, perhaps with a connection to the show. Instead of asking about the connection nicely, ladro posted a "bash"-type response: "Are you married to one of the contestants?" There is nothing specifically wrong with that, since this board (supposedly) accomodates both fans and bashers. But immediately things began spinning out of control.
So ... before things get any worse in here, I have a question. I see people in here have been proposing the creation of a separate forum for "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart." Would it be better to do that ... or would it be better to try to separate Apprentice bashers from Apprentice fanatics and leave the Trump and Martha versions lumped together?
This is a serious question, so please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
