    Default Off Topic

    What are the rules here regarding off topic threads
    What i see happening is that ure free to go off topic post
    pictures of cats ,dogs monkeys and talk any old rubbish u want
    and its not a bother,but if u start talking about a contencious
    issue u are then told its not allowed to go off topic
    This is the consistency im talking about,either its a strictly
    enforced rule or not
    My personal opinion is its no harm,ive yet to see a thread
    here ending up on the topic it begins on,and there have
    been some great debates.
    So things like this get to people when the rule book is pulled out when it
    suits
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but

    Thanks for the post, I agree that practically every thread i have seen has pretty much got off topic.

    The community rules state:
    Off Topic Posts
    Off topic posts are only allowed in our Soap Opera section.

    So from this, there isnt really a rule as such about a thread going off topic. This rule 'i assume' and correct me if wrong, was aimed at non escort related threads being in the Soap Opera section rather than general chat. So I guess we dont strictly have a rule on diverting threads off topic.

    So what is it you are actually asking me to look at.

    What i am saying is that threads going off topic has been used by mods in the past as a reason for closing threads when the
    debate was not to their liking and no other infraction could be found. So basically im saying all treads here go off topic so its
    not fair to use that as a reason to close a thread
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed

    I don't think that's a good reason to close a thread. The only exception I can see is for warning threads.

    “I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly; you make one quite giddy!”
    “All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

    Yup, but in fairness to Jackie she has, in another thread, acknowledged that this is an issue and that she will be taking action. She has laid down a time scale of one week to get this resolved so we should at least give her that. I will be re-posting the thread that was deleted after that time and we'll see what happens..
    I hate being bi-polar, it's brilliant.
