The new trend for sending threads totally off topic, 4chan-style is getting out of hand now.
For troll threads and stupid questions, it was funny once or twice.
But this thread earlier (below) had an important discussion point, that seems quite interesting, but the first dick to post tries to make it about animals. No, not funny.
What will happen in the future is that more and more threads will end up being of no relevance or interest, because they get hijacked by douchebags, and people will no longer visit NS.
