    I've noticed recently that a lot of threads, mainly in CA, have been closed for being "off-topic".

    Quite a lot of these threads have consisted of sensible and interesting debate, and there doesn't seem to have been a will/want to turn the thread back on topic. Also IMO some of the best threads on forums are ones that go off topic (such as the one during the WC in which Hull Lad was "found out").

    What I'm asking for is if threads that go off-topic but contain sensible debate and there isn't any interest in the original topic of the thread anymore to be allowed to stay up.

    Also I'm knackered so I've probably failed to use common sense somewhere in this post so sorry for that in advance :laugh:

    Agreed!

    The best thread to ever exist on this forum started off as a discussion of stupid things people say, and well... it didn't stay on that topic for very long.

    I appear to have been "banned" from CA! Why?

    You have been repeatedly asked to stay on topic and refrain from personal comments about other members. The team agreed we had all had enough of moderating your content in that area of the site.

    @TLC @TAFKAP have I been banned off CA also ?
    It disappeared yesterday for me completely.
    I have messaged a Mod about this but no reply as yet.
    Thanks.

    This started on 1FF and that went downhill fast when people were banned from certain sections.

    Were all doomed.

    I imagine it’s because you rarely add anything other than poking fun about alcohol issues.

    Yes.

    As soon as you can both convince us that you’re capable of civil discussion without resorting to unproductive personal digs we’ll have another look.

    I will bite.
    So I shouldn't be having a go back at someone accusing me of being a "peado" and living in an "Asylum" is not good enough to bar me from a forum ?
    If you learn to read @BoroWill I actually state I have an alcohol related illness, but I presume you are still on 1+1.

    I did actually divert from CA for a couple of days, for my own sanity.
    So I get barred from a section of a forum for airing my personal problems when it was YOU preaching about booze.
    Two questions, was it me who accused anyone of being a "peado" ?
    Or was it me who accused anyone of living in a residential mental home ?
    Even if @BoroWill , the 12 year old doesn't agree, I have had many differing debates on CA, @FranniesTache will vouch for that, that didn't result in personal insults.

    I did read that you said you have alcohol related issues, hard to believe when you’re happily mocking someone else’s problems.

    Free @NorfolkSaddler he is innocent.

    Project fear has infiltrated into the MODS.

    We're not talking about anyone else, we're talking about you.

    Stop calling somebody an alky everytime they post, and we can talk again.

    Please stop going off topic on this thread. This isn't a thread about bans.
