This is just a suggestion but have you thought about the possibility of creating a forum where members can go to handle their differences?

I know on the other message board the constant bantering and fighting can turn some people off as it clogs up the boards, but some others really enjoyed it. If there was a place where you could go to have these battles it could be fun and not take away from the other forums.

For example Just Fishing and Mike Furches could go there and anyone interested could join in.
