Re: This forum needs an off-topic section

We've discussed it before and considered it. But inevitably it doesn't get approved.
Some reasons that come to mind (off the top of my head only; these are not official reasons why we don't have an off-topic forum):
1) The forum would require MUCH more moderating.
2) It would attract the types of posts we have been spending a lot of time and effort trying to discourage.
3) There'd be more fighting in general, which would lead to more antagonism and bad feelings.
We currently have a great group of guys here, as you said diverse and from all walks of life. Currently we get along great. That hasn't always been the case. To invite discussions about other topics might just screw up the good thing that we currently have going.
It's certainly a good idea though.
