Every iteration of b.net has had an off topic zone DMG/Ninjas

Now I might be making my first post from other, more impactful, sections of b.net and I will go ahead and state outright I am not a fan of offtopic in general, but after hearing there was... an idea... to delete the entire off topic area? Well. Gentlemen. Let me remind you that A LOT of the seasoned veterans of "before bungie.net was bought by Bungie Studios Inc" know... that the VERY FIRST... was the off topic area. Back during MYTH days. You know why? Because out of alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the areas you can name? This is the overflow valve with no off switch. This is not a cesspool of litter. This is where gamers can have wacky crazy demolition derby meme approved (and just as quickly disapproved. See Halo 2 BXR off-topic thread days- It nearly split the entire community in two) fun time. So with that said? Bungie.net has always been a home of people who really game secondary, but enjoy a good off-topic visit to get away from the heavily debated Lore discussions, Destiny 2 fan addicts, giving you meaningful game feedback (and lots of it over the years); so if you decide to remove off-topic? Just know you're removing the last bit of the original forum experience which was user owned and operated back then. I wonder what has changed besides the faces at Bungie...

    Honestly this has to be the most well constructed reason on why Offtopic should exist. It's true, there's always been a section of the forums dedicated to conversation outside of the game itself. Sure it's a madhouse, but dammit, it's the madhouse that started it all and it's still active to this day.

  • They can do it, but then they have to contend with us infesting all their other forums with our brand of nonsense. So then they ban us. Then we create alts. They ban the alts. We create more alts. The Ninjas have to work 3 times as hard to try to control and corral us, but we still get through. Now they are faced with others seeing our insanity and it is contagious, so it spreads. Now you have others who are trying it, while also being salty as hell. They catch bans, but the crowd laughing at their posts is a high they can not resist, so they get mean towards the Ninjas and Bungie. The crowd eats it up and pushes them to new heights, because they have not had the gentle guidance of Offtopic to teach them some restraint. All the while, we, the displaced of Offtopic, laugh as the rats sink their teeth into Bungie's soft, pallid flesh, slowly driving them batshit crazy.
