No, we shouldn't. All these posts just need to be moved to the off-topic discussion.
But once in a while, if it does get a bit off topic, then it only feels like a part of the normal cycle.
I was only joking EJ.
I know threads can go off-topic from time to time and I don't have a problem with that, given that I've joined in a lot of off-topic discussions myself. It's only if the subject matter starts to get serious or unpleasant that I feel it should be moved to off-topic discussions.
