General Writing... I've got my eye on you.
I'm just picking a thought out of my mind the way you would pick something from between your teeth that's bugging you and nothing else exists in the universe until you get it out and then can move on with your day.
Post your threads wherever you want, I'll just move them, but seriously there are other subforums besides General Writing. Would that I had the power to do so, I would close that subforum on high-traffic days in order to get folks to formulate their questions just a hair more precisely so that they fit into one of the other subforums in the upper quarter that I call The Teachers' Lounge. Maybe it's a technology thing and lots of folks enter the forum via their phones and that's the very first sub-forum they see so, yeah, here, super easy...
I love the upper area of the forum. I wish it were used more in ways that were discouraged in the past, but which I embrace fully, insouciantly and with reckless rockoutwithyourcockout abandon. Brainstorming! But I do wish folks thought about their question for like 10 seconds more before posting so as to hone them down, get to the root, avoid misunderstanding and get better answers.

I have a feeling that if I had a reeeeaaalllyyyy bored day and went back through all the General Writing forum threads and moved them to where they should be back to Day #1 of the forum, those numbers would be a good deal more evenly distributed.
