Isn't that what we always do here at chit-chat???

Why further fragment discussions?

Paul,

I'm tending to agree with the Cynic on this.

I would rather have the topics all in one place, so I don't have to hunt around to find them. And by hunting around, I might miss an interesting discussion.

MHO,

Dean

I have to agree on Paul on this one (cause he is the boss the after all )... but Chit Chat tends to get off topic quite frequently - and that's ok, because it was basically designed to do that.

And while cruise topics do get into the mix, those discussions can get lost in the "chatter" quite easily, and quite quickly.

The majority of the other message folders on the site pretty much stick to cruise topics... so having one set up to discuss the issues that arise in the "Cruise News" makes good sense.

I really enjoy have the Cruise News Forum. In the past, when I have posted regarding cruise news in Chit Chat or Ask Cruisemates Staff, it would always fall by the wayside. For some reason, Chit Chat board has gone away from being about cruises.
