why not just make a sub-forum for random questions to split them up from the affiliate/brand threads? the random question thread is too chaotic and that's why it spills into the forum Not to be a waiseass, but how about a 'random banter' thread as well? IMO, stuff also spills into the forum because some may see reading fifty pages of a thread (to glean one small answer that may or may not be specific to their question or the brand 'x' they're asking about) as a difficult and time consuming task, and could be a dead end. Starting a new thread may receive only one or two responses, but may also specifically answer the dude's question "does your crotch rivet pinch ya in funny places too?" question, which a longer thread may not. Or maybe he's 'pinch-curious' in which case we should all be gentle... If I browsed this site only for expedient answers, I'd be impatient too, but honestly, I know I look here for entertainment too, so I take the bad with the good.
