I've suggested this a few times and haven't got much response, so - I guess I'll try it. The neg-bangs or pos-bangs will tell me if it was a good idea or not. Some of the other forums I visit on a daily basis have a thread like this, it helps get rid of the 'my dog has a leaky ass' threads.
Whenever someone post something that gets discussion and/or debate going, the mods can start a new thread so we can talk about it there. But typically, these threads are just a bunch of rambling (which most of the OT threads here are) that get a few responses before the subject dies.
I’m not suggesting that we use this thread for good OT threads that get very interesting and get lots of replies, like the ‘movie line’ threads etc. Just for basic, off the wall random observations, bitching, non-bitching, or for thoughts that, well, aren’t worthy of their own thread.
