I agree with this. I find it annoying, too, when people start threads in Freeform Discussion that aren't games and other vacuous fun etc., but also have absolutely nothing to do with HubPages, as though it were some sort of miscellaneous forum—perhaps renaming would solve this problem.
I miss Beth. There was a particularly serious and intense individual who managed to bait her enough to get her banned, I think.
p.s. given that the conservative half of the US is about to vote for Donald 'Grab-em' Trump, the mods should forget about all standards of decorum. The old moral majority are obviously beyond shocking these days, lol.

We dont have any Brits here so the last time I heard expats discussing football was when Germany slaughtered our team during the World Cup. The German expats do not turn over cars or break things--most of them just drive around honking their horns and wave little German flags.
I've no problem with a bit of off-topicness. In fact, I like sunshine on a cloudy day and all that. It's when people add threads which clearly belong elsewhere. Luckily they don't attract much attention and soon disappear. So perhaps I was in a bad mood, or something
