-Like the Crap Filter Bill, the new bill attempted to curtail spam and frivolous discussion. ​ Unlike Crap Filter, it imposed no penalties and was merely a list of "​guidelines for etiquette"​. ​ The bill, however, received neither much support nor attention. ​ This may have been because the issues it addressed seemed to be gone, and Parliament was again discussing real issues, indeed, so many issues that the Discussion Bill went almost unnoticed. ​ The [[Raising of Rl'yleh Bill]] had been introduced just before the Discussion Bill, and though it was definitely silly, it was at least a real bill.  Furthermore,​ a number of MPs were discussing a possible bill (never actually written) to change the titles of the President and other members of Government. ​ Finally, some MPs were again discussing the FFF's suite of democratic reform bills, especially the [[Direct Democracy Bill]], all of which were slated for reintroduction soon afterward.+Like the Crap Filter Bill, the new bill attempted to curtail spam and frivolous discussion. ​ Unlike Crap Filter, it imposed no penalties and was merely a list of "​guidelines for etiquette"​. ​ The bill, however, received neither much support nor attention. ​ This may have been because the issues it addressed seemed to be gone, and Parliament was again discussing real issues, indeed, so many issues that the Discussion Bill went almost unnoticed. ​ The [[Raising of R'lyeh Bill]] had been introduced just before the Discussion Bill, and though it was definitely silly, it was at least a real bill.  Furthermore,​ a number of MPs were discussing a possible bill (never actually written) to change the titles of the President and other members of Government. ​ Finally, some MPs were again discussing the FFF's suite of democratic reform bills, especially the [[Direct Democracy Bill]], all of which were slated for reintroduction soon afterward.
  
 In the end, the Discussion Bill failed when too few MPs had voted on it after a week. In the end, the Discussion Bill failed when too few MPs had voted on it after a week.
