Again assuming that the OP here is just starting new posts and adding comments to others to get his ratio up. Wish there was a limit on how many posts a member can make in a 24 hour period.
Yes, seems that way, we've been hit by a series of runaway posters. A different member, now muted, created a string of very icky, suggestive threads re: "parent-child togetherness" on the Parenthood board, and I wish those could be locked, or better deleted, it will be so long before they are bumped off that top page.
As for this thread's content -- perhaps in societies where gay relationships are strongly rejected, people find ways around it, on the down-low, via what they call "close friends." By contrast, in the West, many gays keep their closest friends in the non-sexual column, because we have more options, from marriage (serious) to tricks, flings (non-serious). Hmm...!
