Default Irrelevant threads

There are two pointless threads on this site, one is titled "The yanks are coming" and another as "US political system is broken". They both contain long rants of a single user. I seriously doubt if anybody ever reads them, as is evident from the absence of any other user's reply to these threads. Why don't we just remove them, or block them from showing up on the main page. At least it will free up space for more useful threads.

I thought about it again and think everyone has the right to post on forum as much as you. If IV does not like it, they will delete it. If you do not like a thread do not read it. Who is forcing you to read a thread? If you want to read something specific to your interest, there is a nice website I found recently. It is called 'Google'. All you have to do is type a keyword and Google will give you back thousands of websites of your interest for free. Isn't this amazing?

Agree with the OP. This is an immigration forum. Random thoughts and observations that have nothing to do with immigration dont really belong here. There are many other discussion forums available where politics, sports etc can be discussed.

How about thread "lighten up"??? Although its not relevant to Immigration, it sure is a good thread that helps everyone to lower their blood pressure after reading visa bulletins and other Immigration hassles.

There are not many insignificant threads that encompasses Immig threads, moreover if you notice they show up when not much is happ on a particular day

Wow, I just tried the "yanks are coming" one. What the heck is that? Did you actually read all of that? I feel ashamed of myself when you say that. Maybe I am too busy or have very little patience. Probably useful articles, however, due to my inability to concentrate for long (I asume) I could not actually make out what that was all about

i read those two threads from macca every evening...... infact i think his threads are very informative & it collects everything relevant at one place.....

for those who don't like those threads, have u guys read the content of those threads? if u read the content of those threads.... u will start appreciating the effort of 1 guy to help us all understand whats going on in the real world..... or we can always look for other things on world wide web......

Those are excellent threads buddy. If you look at the content the poster seems to spend significant time to gather the facts and the presentation is extremely detailed. Somebody mentioned the lighten up thread its also great, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I agree that some information may not be strictly immigration related its ok. This is my personal opinion.

This is quickly qualifying as an irrelevant thread.

No, I was not arguing with you either. I suppor the idea that any person could post any article in this forum (except posts that are clearly countering/damaging our agenda). These certainly could be very useful for lot of people who are "actually wise" unlike those like me who want everything simplified. The articles to me were very detailed and "long" and I clearly lack the ability to read complicated material for long. That is what prevented me from reading them.
