    Does that make sence.

    Seriously, if someone posts something in The Lounge, then they accept that it doesn't have to be treated in a serious manner. They accept that it will be spammed, that's the point. So why move threads out of The Lounge.

    If someone thinks that the topic deserves serious discussion, then start another thread, in a serious part of the board. Whether it be File Sharing, Sport, Current Affairs, Movies, whatever.

    Threads which have gone off topic should be moved to The Lounge, fair enough. However to move threads which started in The Lounge elsewhere is a bit mental.

    If the thread starter asks for it to be moved or agrees for it to be moved then fine enough, otherwise keep it where it was.

    Yeah but he uses phrases like "fine enough" so you can't really hate him.

    Particularly when he's ripping the pish out of me. I like that, but only if it's done well.

    Anyway, it still doesn't make sence to me. People chose The lounge to post in for a reason. Unless the topic itself breaks the rules it is unlikely they have done anything wrong when doing so. What then justifies moving the thread, what rule have they broken.

    I don't see how moving threads out of the lounge is mental...

    Unless they ask for it moved, why touch it at all?

    Only reason to move a serious thread out of the lounge if the original poster doesn't see the need for it would be 'cos of that old idiocy about it not being possible to find intelligence in the lounge, or whatever some idiots used to say.

    Now and again, and a lot more some periods in the past, there were lots of good, thoughtful threads in the lounge. If people are going to start messing with good or at least serious threads in it now, I can only assume that they are doing it to keep the lounge as stupid as some seem to think it these days.

    WTF, like?

    That's not what jp is saying.
    He's saying it's mental to move the thread out of the lounge even if the thread poster asked for it to be...

    I think he's saying that threads that were intentionally posted in the lounge shouldn't be touched. If some noob or something messed up, and put a thread in the lounge, then realises it and asks for it to be moved to an appropriate section, I don't think him to be against that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, JP.

    okay then when did a mod move a thread out of the lounge without the original thread poster having asked?
