    I thought it was when they post a thread in baby club or one of the pregnancy tri forums for advice unrelated to babies or pregnancy? I suppose they would be better in the general chat forums but people tend to stay in one area of the forum?

    Yeah but if you look in this section (general chat) there's 3 'OT' titles.

    I'm pretty sure the Dettol soap one was moved from babyclub. Perhaps the others were moved from another section?

    I've always thought the same thing! How is it off topic if it's general chat?!? You can talk about anything here!!

    I know for a fact that a bunch got moved here from other sections, so it's definitely because they were Off topic (OT) in another part of the forum.

    Yeah it's been bugging me lately too, loads of threads in general with "off topic" in the title, to be honest the only thing I want to reply with is

    "this is general chatter, there is NO TOPIC!" :rofl:
