OK, I've been joining in on all the song and TV threads around here... 'cuz it's fun! And I'm all about fun.<br><br>
But... I find myself wondering if we should try to keep the signal-to-noise ratio a little higher here by relegating some of these totally off-topic threads to the PRT?<br><br>
I was about to start an American Idol thread here but instead decided to chime in on <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19503" target="_blank">this one</a> there. The <i>disadvantage</i> to being over there is that I'm not trading thoughts with all my peeps here - and I miss that.<br><br>
Of course, if we decided we <i>should</i> discourage off-topic threads here - that might prove impractical anyway. Sure, we could all chime-in on such threads and suggest they should not persist and we could even ask mods to move threads.... But that's all a hassle and reeks of "Big Brother" too. Plus, I'd want to think thnk that more of the LIT/KRMS folks would be ready the PRT but I know it's not everyone's cup 'o tea so...<br><br>
I'm torn. What do YOU think?

As long as the KR powers that be, I'd love for us to be able to include off-topic posts here. I don't have time to venture out of the MS section much.

I usually only log into and look at MS forum - maybe I am being narrowminded - but all my friends are here and they might not like me anywhere else (Irish inferiority complex showing now) - So I think post what you want here - if no one replies then you know it was so far off topic that nobody cares<br><br>

i think it's off season. it's a little ridiculous today but whatever, yesterday was all bike and it was swim madness last week<br><br>
and that other place ~ too CH<br><br>
what I want to know<br>
is there a movie you won't watch just because a certain star is in it?<br>
As in. I hate Tom Cruise. Always have. I'm not new on the anti-Tom wagon. Haven't seen a movie of his since A Few Good Men because nobody in the theather wants to hear me yelling "shut-up you stupid pint sized pudwacker" at the screen <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

1! Come March, we'll be all about intervals, hills and swim workouts. Then, in another month or so, all about race reports.<br><br>
A little jocularity for the offseason is a good thing - keep the winter duldrums away.

Not me...<br>
but my dad.<br><br>
He won't go see a Jane Fonda movie.<br>
Her political actions during the late 60s and 70s ......'nuff said.

I've poked around a couple other KR forums, but frankly just don't want to learn all the new names, etc. Hard enough keeping track of my multi-sport peeps, especially with all the name changes recently.<br><br>
I agree with the others, too, that come Spring it will be tough to get anyone here to talk about anything other than triathlon.

Honestly I don't post anywhere else except maybe the med tent or KR equivalent occasionally. I like Neil feel comfortable here. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

What everyone else said. I rarely venture out of MS because this is where all my peeps are.

I also hang out here mostly, but I like the other forums as well, I think being in the VRAA helps ( I really enjoy team races/goals, its very motivating). There are lots of great people out there, logging some crazy mileage. I also frequent another forum which is almost all running but I have managed to convert a few to the tri side.

I also rarely venture out (in fact, I haven't at all) because I can barely keep up here! All my friends are here, and there are SO many people here! I say talk about whatever you want. If you don't want to read OT posts, then don't. I think the OT posts help us to really get to know each other better (outside of our "training" lives) Just my .02 <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
