In regards to certain threads going off course, I have tacken it on to start a 'bitching thread'. Here everyone can bitch about the NRL, conspiracies or whatever you like whilst keeping other threads on topic.

Game of Thrones season 3 is too hard to follow. Too many stories going concurrently to keep up with everything.

I'm sick of everybody complaining about the constant bickering on the Greenhouse. It's a forum, that's what people do!!

I find the arguments highly amusing, to be perfectly honest.

Nick vs affackacacka is always good sport.

The secret service clearly assassinated Kennedy as he was about to go public about the Moon landing being a hoax and was in deep talks to sell New York back to the Dutch to pay for that giant PR stunt.

Two things, cause I'm not sure if this thread is about bitching or game of thrones.

Firstly, I don't think anyone takes issue with debate in a forum (or at least I hope not) it's just when the debate completely derails the actual point of the thread. It's a common problem with forums though, and I'm not sure if it can be fixed other than perhaps having a lot of mods to move the discussion into a new thread.. which on the GH would be a lot of work and result in 3 threads total :P

Secondly, Game of thrones is sooooo confusing until you read the books, however i found the books to be filled with so much waffle in parts it became a chore at times. Other parts were really good, but i can see why so much is left out of the tv show.

A lot of the debate in threads is purely cause there is **** all going on.. Especially with the Milford thing

During the season it tends to get tidied up.. But off season is a bit more lax

Im pretty sure the latest episode of South Park spoiled Game of Thrones for anyone that hasn't read the books.

There use to be an "Off topic" thread where off topic posts would get transferred to. I remember a lot of mine going that way. Has that thread died?

Or enlist Morgan Freeman to continue playing the same character.

They were set to make an 8th and a 9th at this stage. It was a three part story, they would have to be very careful killing his character off.

There's every chance he will be moved on from Manly unless they can secure him to a reduced contract and he may do that to stay with his brother
