    Angry do we have a moderator that can shut down the political threads?!

    All they do is interfere with the chess in my life!

    That's a pretty phony argument. And who do you think you are??

    Edit: A later thread (in new Off-Topic sub-forum) that may be of interest:

    Oh for chrissake, I'm a chess guy who comes to a chess board to read about chess. Why can't there be another board for non-chess issues of potential interest?!

    Just my 2c, just tired of stumbling across non-chess content when I come to this chess area.

    having a bad day? Without non-chess traffic there would be almost no traffic at all on this site.

    Lol, not bad, but thanks for asking.

    Still find non-chess traffic intrusive.

    Agreed. Have a look at this Australian chess board, and how it's set up.

    Good stuff Hugh, thanks. But who's the moderator here anyway? Like how could one suggest this idea?

    Looks like a lot of extra work to me.

    As amusing as that site seems to be, I'm only suggesting that we have something like a "Non-Chess Chat". That would seem to be a good overall solution?!

    Perhaps, but after spending a few moments poking around I am not sure that I have the privileges to implement that.
