After reviewing a lot of posts and the list of infractions that are being given out, as well as the source of most of the flaming etc. on this website, I have determined that the general Off-topic chat section needs to be closed. The topic-based off-topic sections will remain open, but infractions and warnings will be given when there are posts that are not related to the topic of the section that a post is made in. For people wishing to continue off-topic discussions, I encourage you to consider using social networks like Twitter, Facebook, etc. or other forums, or the various third-party chatrooms out there. edit: if you were participating in a thread that is in the OT chat section and could fit into one of the remaining sections, please post a link to the thread and which section you think it belongs in, and we will considering moving it over so you continue discussing.
