All perfectly reasonable.
Regarding thread Hi-Jacking - I always think forums should be like a chat in a pub, of course they will go off subject at times, and thats all part of the journey...... within reason (!).
Personally, I love the random tangents that threads go off in, but maybe thats just me?
I find sexism and sexual innuendo far more intrusive, but in my eye it only damages the credibility of the poster, rather than the Forum as a whole.
Keep up the good work gents. It is appreciated, even by occasional posters like meself!
There is very little here that needs fixing.
Firstly, well done to EM for emerging, existing, sustaining and thriving in a very crowded interweb, I find myself drawn here more and more. Secondly, being guilty of a few tangential posts myself I would broadly agree with JimTheBob's post although I can see that it's not everyone's cup of thermite. And I can also take on board Chui's comments above.
More importantly - Anniversary comp! c'mon!
