Good as any, if the board is literally to remain as is. Back in those frontier days of Webtv discussion groups, I recollect the infamous[*] Tyhart frequently reprimanding club members for their disruption of shop talk with subjects other than coding. Finally he created a second club purely for the non-technical topics, referring offenders and the need for casual conversation over to the second group. I don't know how difficult it would be to split the top section of this forum from the lower, creating two discrete boards with different stated purposes, while stilling maintaining links and announced associations between the two. But sometimes it looks like "getting the bottom section out of sight" is the only thing that would make the top happy. Though doubtless there would eventually be an outcry that even all lingering relations between two such sister forums should be abolished. "The taint .... the taint of the Other still wafts in the air here!" - - - - - - - - [*] "Infamous" after his partial, non-criminal involvement with the hacker responsible for that "Dial 911" malware stunt, anyway.
