The first Idle Chatter we designed was quite naturally perfect, it was a work of art, flawless, sublime, a triumph equaled only by its monumental failure. The inevitability of its doom is apparent to us now as a consequence of the imperfection inherent in every human being, thus we redesigned it, based on it's history to more accurately reflect the varying grotesqueries of it's nature.
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

That's what made it good, IMO.  People need to vent their ridiculousness somewhere...woould you rather it happened in Now Playing?

I think it was putting a big stain on the site as a whole.

Idle Chatter allows for our personalities to show more than any other forum.

A lot of the clutter consisted of the "Ask _________" threads.  The only one of those I found interesting was "Ask Gold Trumpet."

I didn't think it was necessary, but it doesn't matter now anyway.
