It’s hard to describe the kinds of threads that go in this forum, you just know them when you see them. If a thread isn’t really meant to spark real discussion, it’s just to act weird and mess around, it gets put in here so the craziness doesn’t take over the rest of the site.

The Padded Room
Forum Description wrote:A holding cell for the craziest of crazy threads. Anything goes here as long as nobody gets hurt!
A subforum of Hillingdale, this is a place for threads that are so close to spam they need another level of separation. Threads with no conversation at all, just incessant posting, go in here. For example, counting threads or rating threads.
