What's the purpose of a debate if not to voice dissenting opinions?
You know why single men live longer than married men? Because they want to.

There's a difference between offering a dissenting opinion and being completely off topic. I agree with panamint_patty on this one.

There's a big difference between a DISSENTING opinion and an IRRELEVANT opinion. Political correctness has nothing to do with it. Off topic is off topic!

Different strokes for different folks. What some people see as relevant, might seem irrelevant to others. It comes down to life experience and familiarity with a topic. Everyone is at a different stage in their development and so you can't hold others to your personal standards. Then again, I agree that sometimes people can get pretty far out there and so a little oversight and that sort of thing may sometimes be appropriate.

Anyone know what happened? I haven't noticed ANY off topic posts for over a month! It's like a miracle or something! LOL

CoolChick: Wow! You're right. Now that I think about it, I agree, there haven't been nearly as many off topic posts for quite some time. It seemed for awhile that there were random posts several times a week, but now people seem to be doing a better job of sticking to the thread topics.

The random posts were mostly a disruption, but every now and then there was a good one. Can't say I miss the off topic posts though.
