'Relevant 'is right to point this out. The current situation results in ' illegal' threads remaining on view- or in the wrong forum- because the thread has picked up a few posts before being seen for what it is. Others then come along and ape the fault - understandably. So, either reports are addressed faster than they presently are or the rules override the additions to the illegal thread. The third option- the existing state of affairs- is to allow the illegal thread , ignore the rules and permit the illegal threads to multiply.
We don't want a forum flooded with pointlessness and one-liner nonsense, of course, but the last thing we want to do is to prevent people from continuing with any actual ongoing discussion!
Here's an illegal thread that we might use as a tester;
The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, .. Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, ..Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
Zionism is criminal by default.
