Off Topic - Keep it or Drop it?

This issue has been brought up several times.

Should we keep it or drop it?

P.S. I know most wont read this far, but, this idea has been brought up by other people, not by me. But feel free to get mad at me anyway if you disagree.

most of the people in off topic are in there durring the work day trying to waste some down time, if you don't like it just stay out of off topic.

I don't understand what peoples problem is, i hear thier reasoning and i get that, but the just need to clean the sand out of thier vaginas and get over it.

besides most of the noobs in there (even if they don't have a bike) once they start riding they already have a good base of friends and experienced riders to take them out and help them.

The subforums for offtopic are all good. I don't really peak my head in off topic so it wouldnt bother me if it was gone but everyone seems to like it so do with it whatever you wish

keep it, but can we keep the stupid/pointless threads/polls to a minimum?

Coming from a PW, i enjoy whorin' it up in the thread specifically designed for us, but some of the threads, as of late, are pretty lame. EPIC FAIL!

Keep it!

Consider it the "red light district" of MH!
It keeps all of the PW in one place instead of all over the board.

If you want to be good there is the rest of MH

if you want to be bad there is the whole world of off topic to explore

which would be these people so far....

dudewhrsmybikes, ForgottnSoul, RojerLockless, tomLSTD


specially Gary....wtf dude....seriously....wtf



Keep it....other wise all of bill's threads are going to clogging up your on-topic threads.


Plus ya'll will have to be deleting a lot of threads about politics and anything off-topic....

As well as lose a lot of traffic. Which means less people looking at sponsors...and surely you wouldn't want that.

I'd be sad to see it go. It serves a purpose beyond simply containing the PW's.
