This should be a "General" forum...

Why are 50% of the posts in here not even related to LFS? We have Redhat questions, General chit-chat posts..... I don't understand it.... We even have posts like this one that have nothing to do with LFS itself....

If you are seeing a large number of threads that do not belong in this forum, why haven't you reported them to a moderator? That's what the link is for - report it, say it's in the wrong place and if you are right, it will be moved or closed.

I just scanned thru the past 60 days worth of threads in this forum and I missed one actual thread regarding Redhat, which has now been moved. I fail to see the reason behind this post and also don't have any idea where you got the 50% that all posts here are not about LFS; but if you do spot a thread that doesn't belong here, yes, report it and we'll move it. We don't get paid to surf this site all day so yes, we can make a mistake and miss a thread as we're not here 24/7 to monitor these forums.
