So what if rotas are brought up? I'd rather have that then have no discussion at all.
What you personally prefer is really neither here nor there when a rule was set so as not to annoy the majority - but at least we can now understand why it doesn't work.
For you maybe, but there are other members who are interested in rota chat. The splitting of the BBC, ITV and Sky threads has helped so that the main threads are for presentation discussion.
But then again, we had that tape and chair nonsense recently too.
