    why don't you just ignore it, it's only a GC - no one's getting any posts out of it.. plus, newbies can see that the community has a sense of humour... perhaps a bit odd, but - still a pulse :-)

    Better than threads that don't make any sense and are infinitely stupid.

    The thing that bugs me Ainslie, is whenever I come into GC, it's always up top!

    Maybe it should be stickied so it bothers some of us less.

    I think all threads except this one should be stickied and locked. Then the title of this thread could be changed to "This thread sucks but it's all we got".

    Are you joking? Seriously, Forsters is possibly the crappiest local-brew over here. It's all for export man...


























    The Beck's are doing well though. Thanks for asking.

    Don't you guys have any job to do?

    I don't understand why people spend time posting useless, nonsense posts in General Chat all the time. SitePoint is a great community and great resource, and it is really sad that you guys waste your time on General chat instead of using this great site for furthering your knowledge.

    You guys should realise that you are tarnishing the professional image of SitePoint and yourselves by this irrational behaviour. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Your idea intrigues me and I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    The first things that come to mind are threads like http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=288698 which are complete and utter garbage, serve no purpose to the community, and are obviously driving away both existing and considering-to-be-existing members.

    This thread is also pointless. No matter what members think , the mods won't close it untill it breaks the rules (or if they feel like it).
