I have a bookmark to New posts.

Code:
http://www.sailnet.com/forums/search.php?exclude=51,52&do=getnew
Then I click on New Posts - no politics/off-topic. The difference in total new posts is a quantitative indication of the amount of clearly non-sailing content.

I'm not lurking and I'm not counting heads. The only people I know that post in Pol/Rel/Off-topic are those who have announced it in the sailing fora.

That's the extent of my time.

I think SailNet should delete all the off-topic fora. I think it would be better for SailNet. The recent changes here are a positive step. They may well be enough. I hope so. Sailing traffic is up and OT is down. How can that be bad?

For those who are interested I recently figured out that this link goes directly to New Topics - No Politics/Off-Topic:

Code:
