    Please end the off-topic forum

    I have to say that the off-topic forum completely defeats the purpose of HWC. Listen to the name Hardware Central. Hardware Central is what this is called. It is not called the "Who is your favorite basketball team" Central. I am not saying to just keep everything about computers because that would get monotonous and extremely bland. What I say is to keep it like it was 4 months ago. Everything is in the General Forum, and every so often, you can have off-topic posts. The majority of HWC members have turned these wonderful message boards into the AOL Teen Chat Room. I am asking to have support from the members who agree with me, and go back to the way it was.

    I like the new forum, if you don't then don't use it.

    Just needs a mod.

    I think there's more people using it than not. Also people that frequent the General section benefits from this. They don't have to dig through the off topics.

    But I am not seeing too many against it. We can't end it simply because 1 or 2 don't like it. Otherwise you'll just be a commie.

    sin2 , in case I haven't said it before, I think you write the funniest posts of anyone here at HWC. You make it look so easy. I wish I could do half as good.

    Thanks I suppose for being funny. That reminds me of the movie GOOD FELLAS. Seen it?

    Remember the part when the a kid said to Joe Pesci "you're a funny guy". Well Pesci got pissed and shot the kid even though it was a complement. That was a good movie.

    But ofcourse I take your comments as complement. Thx.

    Thats the nice thing about being a member,versus a WANTA BE MODERATOR!

    When you get complete idiots writing stuff ,you are able to tell them.


    One again this guy has entirely TOO much time on his hands,and didnt even think twice about the people who liked the forum,He didnt like it so HE said HE wanted it removed.

    All HE has to do is simply not go in there ,its not that hard,but HE is a complete IDIOT,so HE deserves the "stupid" remark.

    Do YOU fully comprehend this or are you "stupid " too?
