Title says all, really. This is a powerswitch site. I don't mind the bandwidth, but it gives a misleading impression of the forums to new visitors.

Dale Carnegie said you can't win an argument. Personally I don't generally come on here to win arguments but to be informed and to have my thinking opened! btw +1

I didn't mean to be serious - should have used a smiley.

You're quite right, I know I said I couldn't be bothered, but I am unemployed and have too much time on my hands. PS would probably be doing me a favour by moving the thread off-topic.

I suggest you try the local volunteer centre - or toddle over to Sussex. We NEED people with time on their hands to do all the Transition work that the workers with young families don't do!

I've just moved it. I hope that keeps the majority happy.

There is another slightly similar thread in the events forum, might be worth moving that one too?
I could move it, but only if there is a consenus that this should be done.

Strictly speaking, one might argue that threads on climate change should be moved off-topic as well.

If we were more honest we'd rename "Off-topic" to "Nutters' Corner" Smile
