There is a thread in the Free Thoughts subforum titled "The Post Whatever Thread". In my opinion, it is difficult to think of a thread that would have a greater lack of any common theme or purpose. In practice, this thread seems to be treated by some members as sort of like their blog, where they just record any random thoughts or fancies that occur to them on the spur of the moment. For others, perhaps it's more of a chat thread. I am wondering whether our members view this thread as something positive, desirable and/or useful, or whether you think there's no real reason for us to have it. If I had to make an argument for keeping it open, I think the best argument would be that it provides a landing zone or attractive-looking vacuum cleaner for some random junk that might otherwise be posted to a bunch of other, similarly purposeless threads. I'm also not completely averse to having somewhere where members can chat about random things in public, because people are social creatures and all that. So, let's put it to a community vote. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
