This is hypocritacal for me to post what I am going to post but I have to say it. Has anyone else noticed the abundence of off topic posts lately? I wish I could post a link with how many "new posts" were off topic. At least 12 to 15. I am tryin to get some knowledge about my phone and the only I can donthat is soft through all the off topic posts and find the ones of importance. I still love this place, check it everyday. IMHO.

Hehe, Matt. Have a bad day? ;)

Is there a particular question of yours that has gone unanswered?

i think most of the site is off-topic, only threads in this forum are actually in the correct place.

Psylicon, there is no question of mine that need answering. Cosmo has been amazing at nswerinf all my external hard drive questions.

I realize that there is going to be a lot of off topic, but we need am update or something to talk about. I am not trying to get in an argument I just like to know everything I can aboutthis phone. I might jailbreak it to give me something to do...
OJ. killer is with an"er" no just an "a". I'm surprised no one caught that earlier!

I have no idea how someone could complain about other people enjoying side-conversations in the Off-Topic thread....I would understand if there were increaseing amounts of Off-Topic posts in the iPhone or iPhone 3G threads, but our interest in the Off-Topic thread shouldn't be a problem for anyone. I am sorry we all do not pander to your needs on this website.:confused:

There are tons of existing threads, and I highly doubt there are any features that have gone un-discussed to this point. Perhaps you need new releases or features to talk about, I get it.

P.S. - not trying to argue...just have never seen someone get frustrated at an Off-Topic section for being Off-Topic before.

Are you kidding me? Obviously I spelled Killer the way I wanted to...Its like me now saying that you can't even spell the state you live in....
it's spelled...Wisconsin.

The difference is that you DON'T know the difference between to and too and most likely two, as well. O well, sorry I mentioned it in your off topic thread complaining about off topic threads....

tex, I never was complaining. I was just saying a month ago there were a ton a questions and new information and now we post in off topic. That does not mean that imam complaining. I am active in many off topic threads and to be honest love them all. I get to see what intrests people and get to know them.
I did not for this thread to be English class or me "complaining" I was just giving my opinion. I love you guys. I love this forum. Let's keeps it real.

Back in the days before tons of people joined EiC there was a thread asking why the Off Topic never gets any action. Interesting to see how the tides have changed.

Can't the man just voice an opinion? Everyone needs to loosen up a bit.

that's why it's a losing (and boring) battle.

i even went to a jesuit high school, where grammar is just about everything. Who gives a crap if someone forgot an 'o', or can't remember to use there or their... discounting someone's main point by drawing attention to a minor grammatical error is not quite valid, imo.

we are not writing formal essays or for a publication here, so i suggest if you want to pick apart grammar, head on over to an english web forum.
