Mo786, I'll take a look and remove off topic posts. It's against forum etiquette to have off-topic posts in deals, and we usually try to discourage it. But with so many members here, it's easy to slip into. Please feel free to use the "report abuse" button on any you are concerned about.

It's off topic in 9 out of 10 threads across all the boards.

I wouldn't go that extreme.

I would. Virtually every thread goes off on some tangent at some point. Not saying it's a bad thing but there is always at least one comment that goes off topic. Even Hot deal threads are being bumped now. :roll:

Depends what you mean by off topic?, On the xbox 360 threads, People will say the PS3 is better, Hence a debate is kicked into life!, On the PS3 threads people will say the Xbox 360 is better, Another debate.

On the TV threads, People will ask about different Tv's and how they compare, Etc;

having just done a straw poll of a few threads I would say its about all of them as they go off topic in one way or another, but certainly the Op has a point though

Spot on!:thumbsup:

There's a difference between an off-topic post and an off-topic thread.

Sorry but really not everything is so black and white.

No one I repeat no one wants to trawl through 5 pages of useless information that has NOTHING to do with the deal Syzable. If you want to discuss a certain topic why not take it into the Miscellaneous musings forum?

EDIT: Thanks for response emma/admin

Err, get your fact straight before you go accusing me off posting spam in threads other than Misc. You have been here 2 minutes and are way off target.

But feel free to make a fool of yourself, consider yourself blocked. Bring back neg rep for stupid unresearched comments like this person. :thumbsup:

Syzable : There was no need for that post! He did not accuse you. He just addressed the post to yourself.

And it doesnt matter if he has been here 2 minutes or 2 years ... we're all a community.

handbags at dawn guys!:giggle:

Fair do's. Apologies to Mo786, caught me at a bad time.
