It's like a revolving door of walking fruit cakes.

I couldn't resist logging in just to do this:

Post #9#.... "On the pop" simply means (in the NorthWest of England) - on the beer.

I assume you are referring to this thread, which I moved yesterday. To be honest, I just didn't see how that constituted either a question or an answer to a travel related question. It seemed more like a rant, which I think belong in the blogs area. But as I didn't want to delete the whole thread altogether, I just moved it to Off Topic.

Basically, these travel forums are to ask travel related questions. Yes, it can be frightfully boring compared to life altering topics like "add a word to this thread", but that's just the way it is

Don't get me wrong, I see the travel related side of the post, but I just didn't feel it belonged in the Asia forum, or any of the other travel related forums.

Post#14#.... I totally agree with you. I've noticed quite a lot lately, that a travel post has turned into a slanging match for one pointless reason or another.

Swept Away is also commenting about this thread, which I moved a few days ago for similar reasons. There, Niels comments that the content is better suited for a blog. (But, as we now know, Swept Away doesn't blog.)

Glad that's all cleared up. It's as clear as mud.

Who is a Fruit Cake? Who are you calling a Fruit Cake?

What does it say about you? It so convenient to label people with derogatory terms. If everyone does what you are doing this forum is going to be a mess.
