Why so many OT subjects?

Why are there so many OT subjects and why don't you guys post them on
the appropriate forumn?
What the hell does Hilliary Clinton's chances in '08 have to do with
metal working? Put this crap somewhere else!
This is annoying.

I agree. I don't read this group as much as I used to because there is so much O.T. crap.

Here's my $.02.
I don't consider myself a "political animal". By that I mean to say I don't hang out on any of the political groups and think the people that do may be somehow "untrustworthy" in their postings in that, in their eagerness to score "political coup" they will post unverified items and offer them as "truth" or, in fact, may know them not to be the truth. I feel this is the hallmark of politicians these days. So sue me.
On the other hand the people on this newsgroup, and some others I'm familiar with, seem more like the average working people I'm familiar with and the type of people I've worked with my entire life and who I certainly trust to tell the truth more than any politician I've had the unfortunate experience of meeting.
Although I don't normally begin any off topic posts I feel as though these posts are offered by other members of this group in an honest attempt at communication which I see no reason to discourage.
Perhaps you could start another group with the understanding off topic posts are discouraged? I believe most would honor the request.

Let's stick to metalworking. Some posts are crossposted to other forums, and it just is a waste of bandwidth.
For those with OT opinions, just post the forum that it appears in, and if we're interested, we'll go.

I went to the coffee shop the other day with some friends and somebody had the nerve to talk about something other than coffee.

Then go to alt.coffee.talk if you have OT subjects.

It's damn annoying to realize that I'm now paying more in sales tax on a cup of coffee than the whole cup of coffee cost me back when I began drinking the stuff.

It is to me too. Fortunately there are now better places on the web to have serious discussions about metalworking than there used to be a few years ago.

You have idiots like gunner here who think that everybody on the planet gives a fuck about his infatuation with Hillary Clinton, gun control, GW Bush, Iraq, and everything else his feeble mind absorbs from CNN all day long.

Many years ago, Cleveland baseball had "Nickle Beer" nights. A drunken riot ended that! It was probably better remembered that our burning Cuyahoga river. We DO have "Van Roy" coffee that beats anything I've had anywhere. We just can't talk about it on the NG....WAIT, it comes in METAL CANS!!! (not really but they'll never know.)

Have you never stood around the water-cooler, or the shop door, and chatted with neighbors\friends about other things than "work", or the hobby?
If you don't care for the OT stuff, don't read it. It's that simple... :)

I'm lurking in here at least twice a day. If there is nothing in the OT stuff that interests me, I just don't read it.
