How far are things going to go in the new regime? Why are posts in a thread that was trash to start with deleted? What's the point? When there is no proper topic to stick to, how are you meant to stay on topic? Are things going to get progressively worse? Are you planning on upping the ante in regard to 'off topic' posts? I'm not impressed. The thing that set sciforums apart from just about any other forum was the way that the community were allowed to take threads in different directions. If it was truly off topic and uncalled for, the person would be told or people would skim the post and continue the thread. Sometimes inane comments or seemingly 'off topic' posts revive legitimate threads and get more people in to further add to the discussion. What are your thoughts, people o' sciforums?
