the general rule I have with such threads is

Stay out of them if they have no interest.(Like with me and the kickball ones, hang on, isnt Football like a religion to some people.........................)
Lets everyone else have there fun in them

Re the 'poo' yhread, never posted myself but isnt this essentially toilet humour filtered down to its most basic component?

As for politics, i doubt there are many uk forums that havent touched on the general election in the last week or so, but if them's the rules...

Off topic is now open again.
A few topics have been removed as they fall foul of the new rules (we'll remove anything else unsuitable as we find in) but in general it all remains.
We're well aware how long-running some of these threads have been, so we wanted to ensure that regular forum members could still enjoy them.

Can't log in using Firefox.
I get the message that the website has been configurated incorrectly so to protect me I cannot connect to the forum.

EDIT - The problem was my firewall, it started to block all websites using firefox for some reason. Normally I can rely on Eset but not today. Easy enough fix though......

Now we're fully under Future's digital team there should now be a lot more stability on the forum. I've been assured that the issue causing the time outs has been discovered and fix, but there's going to be some general maintenance being done as well over the next week. Hopefully this should be the end of the various problems.
