When we made /bros/ the purpose of the section was simple: have a place where the people posting on the site could post bigger off-topic conversations (music, games, movies, whatever). After a very long time people finally started posting in there, keeping out circle-jerking out of the Chloë threads.
However what started happening was that the section became some sort of gathering place for circle-jerkers, because people apparently haven't discovered facebook yet. Not only that but you had people posting there who almost never posted in /chloe/ and it also became apparent some people came to the site only for the circlejerking which kind of defeats the purpose of why it was made in the first place.
I think some of you summarized it perfectly when they said (jokingly or not, it does not matter) that they "come for Chloë, stay for the CJ". I don't want people here to stay for the wrong reasons so I'm making it easy for some of you.
So with that in mind I'm announcing I will delete the /bros/ section next weekend (9-10 nov)
I'm giving you a heads up so you can share contact info (emails, twitter or facebook accounts, etc) and have time to enjoy it while it lasts.
Hoping to save you some time, let me address some of the most obvious questions that might arise:
>Where should the circle jerkers go?
It's the place where we came from, it won't hurt to go back there from time to time. You have constant circle-jerking threads there, more people you could meet plus you could post stuff that might not be allowed here so it will be a pretty good fit for many of you
>Do you realize you will be driving people away?
If circle-jerking is what makes or breaks the presence of some of you here (and not the reason why this site was made for in the first place - aka Chloë)
… then good riddance.
