    Can @Dinner's "Haha" thread be moved to the GR or the BR instead of the RR, along with any of the other "Hey, look what kewl upscale restaurant I just ate at" threads he posts in the wrong forum?

    Obviously he expects more hits because he's posting in the RR, but the majority of his non-bigot posts are personal information and, frankly, not controversial (i.e., the spirit of the RR). More like :bigyawn:

    Just a thought.

    Cue the usual "OMG, you're trying to silence me" in five, four, three...

    It had not been my understanding so far that the Red Room was reserved for controversial topics, only that they were welcome there.

    There might be an interesting conundrum here in that an uncontroversial thread posted into a forum reserved for controversies is misplaced and hence automatically a reasonable grounds for controversy, at which point it becomes a well placed thread and hence uncontroversial, which implies that...

    I hate it when Dinner misuses the RailRoad.

    @K. I'm with you 99% of the time, but this poster needs to be schooled in basic "this goes in this forum; this does not. "

    You'd think after all these years he'd grasp this but, then again, he still hasn't acknowledged that @Ebeneezer Goode has been a member here for five years longer than he has. :shrug:

    @garamet I say this with love and respect, but what's the big deal? Don't respond to it.

    Don't you see the irony that by either responding negatively in his thread or by posting a thread in the Help Desk, you are automatically making it a controversial thread? This thread pretty much cemented his thread in the Red Room.

    I don't usually go for Americanized and bastardized versions of excellent cuisine like Thai

    Can see how you would though
