This is slightly beginning to annoy me now, so how about we start deleting posts that go off topic within a thread and lets say if they do it more than 5 times give them a suspension.
What do the rest of you think.

Warn them, then if they continue, remove all their threads in the topic that go off topic, including those others (from other people) that continue with their off topic comment.

Yeah. It keeps the topic clean :)

Is going off-topic really that much of a bad thing? In a conversation the original theme often tends to move on to a slightly different topic, and a thread here sometimes seems to work in the same way - something related to the topic makes you want to ask a slightly off-topic question or say something not directly related etc. Oh well, just my thoughts...

I see your point. Something quick is fine, but taking the topic totally away from the topic title is not something we want. New topics can be for that.

I was meaning things that have absolutely nothing to do with the thread.
