We're not expecting beer posts in OT. We're just saying that there has been so much worthless OT posting going on that all of the beer posts get buried in it. That means that people are responding to it though, so maybe that is what they want. Personally, I check the forum less often now.


How is it getting buried? All of the Beer related topics have their own areas under beer. Off Topic is all the way at the bottom of the Board Index under Admin.

It's not like an Off topic post is going to knock the All-Grain area or the Beer Radio area off the front page.

When you click on "view new posts" or "view active topics" all you see is this OT stuff. That's all I'm saying, and I hope it's clear now. I realize that you can still go to the Board Index and check beer related topics the old fashioned way. It's just not as convenient. I'll drop it now to stop contributing to the problem.

I seriously want to discuss my topics. Others have posted spam to mock me, i.e. Sheen and BrewTa2. That's where the difference lies. The board wouldn't appear spammed if they weren't getting their panties in a twist over the fact nobody pays attention to their threads.

And look at the post counts in these threads before you label mine spam. There's a dozen threads by those two that don't have a single reply while my threads are actually hosting a conversation. How rude of me to spark off topic conversation in the off topic forum.
