Is it not possible to just ban posters from a specific thread if they persistently take it off topic? It would allow the discussion itself to continue for those who wish to participate sensibly, with the added bonus of feeding the paranoid delusions of the more comically unhinged among us.

Nobody likes to see a thread closed down, especially for the wrong reasons and a thread of over 800 posts is testament to the enthusiasm of contributors.

Rather than close a thread for one or two or three posts that seem beyond the bounds to some, why not offer perhaps a tighter definition of the thread title?

The subject under discussion could not be more ĎSocialí, as it applies to everyone on here and throughout the country, but by its nature can stray.

If a post crosses some loosely-defined or misunderstood barrier then either the individual post might be in jeopardy and disallowed or at least edited. That seems a tad more polite. Better a blue pencil than an axe.
