It has been decided that the Melee forum must be closed. The forum was created with the intent of being a place where people could go and blow off steam and ranting about anything in any language. Sadly, it turned out quite different. The Melee became a place where you could insult anybody and more or less disregard the forum rules without any consequences. People decided to use the forum to settle any personal disagreements in a very uncivilised way. These agressions spilled over into the normal forums where many thought they could insult other members only to be told afterwards to simply "Go to the Melee. That is why it is there!". This undesirable tendency has now been stopped. From now on members of Gaming Forums must respect one another's opinions and never flame fellow members anywhere. The forum staff will take the appropriate action towards anybody who breaches the forum rules.

I disagree with you and YOU SUCK!!!!! ;-) I am of course, just kidding. Melee was a breeding ground, I am glad we don't have it anymore.
You suck crash. You suck Dread. I guess thats my last flame. ;)
Yeah, I've been noticing so much *Flame me* threads in the melee, to think its purpose was to blow off steam.
