Off Topic
A lot of you are WAY off topic here. Don't make assertions without tying them back to the original topic. If somebody makes an off-topic assertion that you want to reply to, find another thread (or open a new thread) to address it. Invite the poster to respond to you there.

It's just not that hard.

I started marking topics that were off topic, but there's simply too many to address. Let's start thinking about these things before posting. You can't discuss every issue in every thread, you just get a mess.

Please take better care of this before posting.

Thanks.

Re: Off Topic
Jazzns,

Don't take the fact that my admin post appeared just after your post as an indication I was talking about you most specifically. I actually began writing before your post was even available.

If you're asking specifically what posts you wrote that were off topic, I would say check, Post 170.

nwr and Faith have been headed off topic in a coupld of different directions. Faith also failed to bring a comment back on-topic at post 140, and DBLevins responded to that.

The post you wrote just before I posted my comment was actually nicely tied to the subject. The posts you responded to, started by Modulous (I think), were the beginnings of an off-topic line of posting, but hopefully you found a way to bring it back.

Hope that helps clear things up.

AbE: If you had posted your comments in post 179 (179, is that right?) in post 170, you could have tied it into the thread directly. You didn't, so by itself it's just arguing the topic of "kinds".

Early witching hour
Jar and Faith, you can take your discussion what has been fair / unfair to the "General..." thread linked below.

Others... we've gotten way off topic, my warning did no good, and I don't see things will get back on track. Any interesting discussions, please find other, more appropriate threads to continue them in.

If somebody disagrees with my assessment of the thread, please follow the "Considerations..." link below.

Thanks.

Re: Pushing the continents apart
{Edit: OOPS. Off topic I just realized.

Oh my. I may have actually gotten through to someone, sometime. Bestill my beating heart.

Is it worth starting a new thread?}

I'm SURE there's an existing thread where you can fit this in. If it's closed, do a quick request to the "Considerations..." thread, which (as always) you can link to below.
