    Not an original, I'm afraid

    My mate, Matt Sweeney, got deported to Siberia for exotic suggestions.

    KB: Removed "Miscellaneous Different-Sex Issues Thread" - too many stupid posts already.

    AC: Unfortunately I think the problem has just moved house.

    By not allowing telling of a comparative situation in another to make a point it severely restricts poetic licence, ability to make a point in a pointed colourful manner and makes the audience all sound like straight vegans who can't hear a story, have a bet and chew gum at the same time.

    Your poetic licence has been revoked because you didn't pass the L-plate test.

    Sir, I would like to dob someone in for an off topic comparative situation - comparing climate change knowledge with loan interest calculations. I know I have left it in good hands.

    That's not an analogy, it's just a very weak argument.

    Now mate re ruling in Tennis thread. I obviously was replying to this preceding post that also mentioned all those things that I am not allowed to mention in the one breath. Surely I was doing no more than my other mate, Michael.

    Nah, Michael was posting completely on-topic because he was pointing out the reason why tennis ratings differ from chess ones, following an also on-topic suggestion that a system resembling chess ratings (although not explicitly described by me as such, because Elo ratings are now used for many things) would be more predictive for tennis. He was pointing out that even though it's less predictive, there's some sort of reason why it is used for tennis. You then made a response that was completely about chess ratings and completely irrelevant to tennis, and when I deleted it you then smuggled the same content back into a purely chess-related sentence in another post that was mostly about tennis.

    It's not rocket science - posts that are entirely about chess go on chess threads - make them on a relevant thread or if there isn't one, start a new one. You don't have to post in the same thread just because you're replying to someone, and I know you know this and were just being lazy.

    I have adopted the position that if just making a comment or comparison that it doesn't deserve a new thread, that is wasting bandwidth and makes it burdensome if someone is checking through thread titles. I prefer a new thread to be a "winner" and have a life. My mind can't help but notice comparisons across a broad spectrum.

    In post 308 here http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....rianism/page21 my mate Dr Baron is using a chess analogy in a political thread - I find it very challenging as I am attempting to reform.

    Hi Boss, can I use an off topic comparison in an non chess topic - like two X negatives make a positive?

    The main issue is whether it is likely to cause the thread to go off-topic and leave me having to move posts around to stop the thread from going off the rails.

    There's a chance it might be OK if you avoid a comparison to any of the following: chess on a non-chess thread, politics on a sport thread, sport on a politics thread, anything to do with the Trump or Obama families, Serena, anything that has its own thread that people are likely to respond to with posts that belong on the other thread, Nazis, Israel, Palestine, any trolling, anything crass, any other forum or anything LGBTIQ+ related in any way.

    thanks, I could manipulate the Queen Mary through the big gap you left. But is it almost anything goes in my famous analogies thread? That is my prayer room.

    I only said there is a chance it might be OK otherwise. I didn't say how big that chance was.

    Pretty much, but I will still delete material from there if it comments on moderation of the forum, is offensive, trolls another poster or is too crass.
