    Why?

    Errr, what's the deal with OT? Isn't it exactly that... 'Off topic'

    Look, why is this place so uptight? it's turned into something where only the highest of conversations can be had.

    Why was Shounak's thread closed? What harm was it doing? sure, it may not be everyones cup of tea, but i see no point in just closing things cause its not up to peoples lofty standards.

    CW is a good place, but it needs to loosen up, OT shouldn't be a place where only people with an IQ of 456+ can talk, otherwise that'd just leave me and igor_clubshub

    But seriously, this place is declining IMO, we need to relax some mentalities.

    Discuss.

    I share Benchy's point regarding the specific thread.

    Now there is another game and such other crappy nonsense. If it can go on, why can't some thing like Shounak's thread. The CW Wormhole would be awesome. We have become huge fans of it.

    As the song says, we all gotta relax don't do it, when you want to go to it... relax don't do it when you want to come.

    I concur. I thought Shounak's thread was kind of funny, for a couple of seconds at least, and I don't see what harm it did. It's not like it was a big flamewar or anything.

    I totally agree with Benchy. Just because a thread seemingly has little point shouldn't be grounds for closing it.

    So I guess the rest of the song, i.e "Relax don't do it When you want to suck to it" isn't appropriate either?

    If you can't Paint Turtle it, it's not appropriate.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Despite the innuendo, we're still no closer to answers...
