Hi P3t3rb0nn,

Yes, I agree there. It is a sorry state of affairs. Moreover we have lost some very good and dear friends in the process, and saddened a few others. This cannot pass unnoticed however. Those responsible will be taken to account not by members of this forum, but just by the arrogance of their deeds. We have seen this coming a long time now. Inaction on moments that action should have been taken, made things run out of hand. PMs that should have been sent, never were. Ego clashes were not nipped in the bud. All very understandable and nobody is to blame, but it could have been all different. Well there will be something new on the horizon. Keep on fighting malware. All is well that ends well,

As Pavel told:

Do not use any of the other forums for off-topic stuff.
The three of you are doing just that imho.
Let this (my) post be the last here.

General Topic:  anything and everything about this board
In my opinion, the closing of the Off-Topic board can be discussed here, although I won't participate in such a topic.

Eddy perhaps you could suggest a forum heading  that would be acceptable to discuss this issue
as OFF topic was closed due to the actions of so few I await your knowledgeable  reply ;D

That's right we are talking about this forum i don't see anything wrong with that.But if the moderators feel we can't talk about this then they can always lock this thread or delete it right?

Lets just transfer the whole Avast site Over to the  My Virus Help site sound almost the same

How can a problem be truly solved by running away from it
Precisely my argument but the answer was to take the easy way out and close the Off-Topic forum.
The simple solution is this: MOVE

I think that Peter is right. Why was taken the easiest way?
And I still hope that Alwil will change their decision  :-\ :'(

I am normally a passive person, i agree 100% with the above statement.
What next a question about avast you felt the reply was abusive, you send abuse back etc.

Then is that topic closed and moved to another forum.

Other forums the people involved are warned and if they don't change they are barred from the forum.

With all the flaming in the off Topic the Flamers 1 Avast Nil.

From now on must watch replies might offend, Pity this doesn't work in the real world.
Is this the death nell  Cheerscrofty59 >:( >:( >:(

The only good thing is that at this time the information in the Off-Topic forum is still available.
We might not be able to post in there but, we can still referr to the information on that forum.

Perhaps that information, e.g. the sticky threads should be moved to this the General Forum?

The fact is the off-topic forums is closed and the only place to discus this is with the person who closed it, Pavel by PM or email, he may be able to reopen it (with stronger rules) at some point in the future. However I feel it shouldn't be discussed in another Forum contrary to the request by Pavel "Please do not use the other specialized forums for offtopic stuff."

Well that's my 2p worth and last post in this thread.
