...about moving people's threads to different sub-forums, if I were a mod or admin.

It's a slippery slope, and you just might tend to start pissing people off if they come back and can't pick back up on a thread they were following or participating in without first hunting it down....even though it's just a "My Stuff--->Posts..." click away.

Not only that, but it's a fool's errand to try to ride herd on them, and to make decisions that folks might not like.

Better to just trust that most folks will post to the "proper" sub-forum.

I also think most folks are cool enough to say something like "Hey, were really getting into too much political discussion with this thread...let's move it to the Soapbox." And if they're not, surely there are users ( grin ) who will strongly suggest it.

Just something to think about.
