I've went through and nuked a lot of the off-topic posts in this topic. Keep to the original subject at hand, and leave debates on government and the like in OoT or the Asylum.

So that's where all those posts went. I thought I was losing it for a second there.

EDIT: You did nuke some of my posts that were at least partially on-topic though. There are a couple around the end of page three (With display at 50 posts per page) that I know were not entirely off topic but are missing anyway.

Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

One sure way to keep bored people from using this board in a pseudo-social kinda way.

The thread wasn't going anywhere, anyway. Oh well. Thanks big bro!

The best parts are:

1) This thread hasn't been "on topic" in a while; the last couple of pages were me explaining the concept of "barriers weeding out bads", and there's still plenty of "off topic" content in this and several other threads.

2) In deleting posts, a lot of relatively on topic discussion was removed from the thread because -some- of the post was off-topic, despite the rest of it being on-topic.

3) All that was removed was a bit of intelligent (albeit offtopic) discussion from a thread that was started on a forum that is largely comprised of speculation anyway. Why should we discuss things that matter when we need to get back to the real point of being here: Arguing about information and speculation we won't know about for months.

4) Any chance at taking the off-topic parts of the discussion to a different forum has been nullified, because rather than MOVE the off topic posts, they were deleted, and I'm certainly not going to retype it all (****, I can't even remember what all was said) from scratch in another forum just to continue what was a worthwhile discussion. At least if the posts were left alone, I could have copied and pasted it and started a new thread, but nope.
