Go have a peek. The Boxing Ring is one of the most civil sections of the forum. The one-on-one format keeps either side from being mobbed by a dozen replies from the other and the fac that either party can drop out at any time tends to keep the discussion much more civil.

I like the "Wet Noodle" part. It's light-hearted but is a reasonable description of the human brain, the only weapon allowed.

Accurate, non-threatening, unequivocal.

But pedestrian and dull.

If we combine it with Heatheness' suggestion we could have One-on-One Wet Noodle Fencing.

RE: Boxing Ring needs a new name
In truth, when those sections were created (Colosseum, Viper's Pit and the now demised Melee) I found it a bit patronising ... mainly because there was no explanation for it at the time (or I missed the explanation).

To me, it came across as though the Forum Team (as was) were saying "If you children can't play nice, go play outside" whereas it was just a solution to an issue of what to do when threads get vicious / where to put the split part?

I even went as far as creating a thread where I deliberately insulted everyone although I think my point was missed.

So, yup, I'd like a different name.

With a nod to one of my favourite forum members, I'd like to suggest...

Pas De Deux

Speaking of patronizing...

The Hot Seat? Sort of either "put up or shut up" for either side.

That name could give people quite the wrong idea.

Yeah. Or simply, Debate room.
