No reason for remove neutral things like animals. If we begin to remove any thing we consider as an offense, we will not have smiles or emoticons. Another example is trying to complain chinese hats or mexican mariachis (in my way of thinking I dont care what people says)

No need right now I think. I liked emoji's. Adds more fun to chat. Un-nessasary right now I think unless there a complaint.

Would need an update. Little outdated. But a main priority right now I think they have to update website,bring activity,people and posts.

I think there are people who still like RTS but can't do anything because the way the world going and shape.

RTS will give it another crack when seasons collide. In the next 1-40 years. When someone millionairs puts money where there mouth is. Or gets off there arse(figure off speech) to do the work.

In 2000-2010 we had lots people and money. With world issues and resources the people we need are working on space and time or department from the goverment private sector.

Nothing we can do until they get there cough cough THQ. But story for another day.

If we play now we get more critism then praise. So I would think it's hard time to start playing and makeing it your career.

I think alot people hate going to shops now as all they do see people spend money which is good for the company but bad for the everyday worker especially around Christmas.

None off new people know what's going on there better off study robots or sports. Because you would need to to be in 80s or 90s to understand retro gameing the party's and how games evolve.

EricBR complained about monkey videos in 2022:

He inspired this topic.

Edit: I didn't even realized that I linked the same content in the mean post. I need a doctor.
