gwalchmai
06-24-2005, 07:59
Yeah, a forum discussing a particular business may be seen as an attack. Maybe some kind of generic "Large Retailers" forum would be better. Then we could gripe about Home Depot and Target, too. ;f

Soldat
06-24-2005, 09:35
We could call it,

The Big Box
A club dedicated to big box retailers of all varieties.

Guys, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but a forum dedicated to Walmart isn't going to happen. If we set up a Walmart forum, what is next? A Safeway forum? a Sears forum? If the idea for this forum is whimsical, there is already a forum on Glock Talk where whimsy is welcomed.

I do not want a forum here dedicated to bashing a specific company, or even to praise a specific company. It is not this site's function to provide a fan club or a wailing wall for someone else's company. If you folks want a forum to discuss shopping, then perhaps a more general concept is in order. Maybe a Bargain Shopping forum or a Retail Shopper's forum. Somthing along those lines. You all kick it around and see if you can come to a concensus. Once you have, start a new thread concerning the revised format and see if there is any interest in it. Sorry. Eric

Just kidding, bro.

Still, another revelation shot down in its prime! The horror, I say, the P A I N !!!!!!!!!

I want my money back! Oh, um, er, wait... I never contributed. No matter.

To you I say NI! And be gone with you, before I shalt have to taunt you yet again!

But it is a nice shubbery, quite nice. Oh, DOH! We could have gotten it at Wal Mart!
