What is this "Off Topic forum" of which you speak? Witchcraft!

I thought it did exactly what it said on the tin:

"General - post anything else here"

I'm pretty sure that's what it said....

Although it is fine to split things out - I'm not convinced that the general forum was anymore OT recently than anytime in the past - I mean, the word ascoc & Phwooar threads have been going for yonks and they ain't exactly about general tri are they?????

You mean the "gratuitous excuse for padding" thread?

I know what you mean. Chewing up bandwidth for no reason whatsoever.

I've only been on it, erm, 10 times.

Exactly. If you are going to pad, at least have some class.

Like using full sentences (not this one, obviously, not grammatically correct) and taking the time to actually use stress indications.

Result!
