    Default Is this Forum about Broadband or not?

    We have threads about Pres Mbeki and ne Pilot, about graphics cards, what are you doing new year etc. Can we try and stick to spirit of forum?

    Yeah coz we don't use this forum to improve, discuss, question ADSL problems. If you want to question Pres Mbeki's decision to use a possible less than qualified pilot I fail to understand what that has to do with my broadband

    it has nothing to do with broadband.

    Which is why it is in the off-topic section.

    And legit hardware questions go in the hardware section.

    They exist for that purpose.

    The heading for this forum is General ADSL Discussions not off topic etc. Hard ware refers to ADSL hardware and so on. Not petrol, not pilots etc

    Dear Tony... You're 100% correct - the heading is General ADSL Discussions - that's the topic - IOW the section "off-topic" is meant for other stuff (not about the topic).

    You are off-course more than welcome not to read them, and since you're the bright spark tonight why don’t you come up with a solution to our ADSL problems.

    There's plenty of space for everything. Take this thread - it belongs in the Forum suggestions and gripes area - incase the title doesnt give it away thats where people go to discuss gripes and make suggestions.

    Then dont read it. Stick to the topics you're interested in.

    EDIT - are you by chance using the New Posts link to browse the forum? In which case I could understand the possible distractions.

    Who do you think gets the money when you use dialup - again it's Telkom. You can't get rid of them mate. So please if you have any more meaningful (less crazy) suggestions - please post them, otherwise do all your babbling in off-topic (as you suggested).
