Re: OT: Off-topic posts
I can think of a few off topics that have been educational and fun to read and post to, but I agree that lately, even if they start out with good intentions, they quickly degrade into name calling and childish debates over semantics. IMO when you told them to knock it off, they simply made their rude comments more vague and less direct, but were still making the same basic comments.
I say crack down hard on the violators and try as much as possible from imposing something that, for lack of a better term, "punishes" the rest of the group.
I agree with the time limit. Even the good off topic posts get old after a few pages, and many of them are political, which means even if one gets locked, another hot "off" topic should pop up any minute.
There's a reason why I don't post on Pirate, But lately we are getting the same attitudes, just lacking some of the vulgarity.... it can't be far behind unless something is done.
Thanks again to Jim and Dirt Dog for their efforts. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
