    I did return a wallet once. It was in the street. I checked the address and it was the house it was in front of. I assumed the dude dropped it out of his pocket after a night of drinking, because...

    Bikearlington is fine, as a site. The only change I would make is that 20 subforums is far too many (if I were forum god, I'd reduce that to 5 or so). That would make the "new posts" less...

    This. Honestly, I'm just pointing out the way FS is being handled on the forum at the moment is degrading the experience for those who don't care about it (since there are like two dozen threads). ...

    De-index the FS subforum from the new posts list? Roll the entire thing off into its own event page (it seems like its getting big enough)? Evaluate whether 30 individual threads are truly...

    I tend to treat them as I would any stop sign. My baseline is to do a full stop. If its an intersection with good visibility for cars and pedestrians and is obviously clear, I'll usually roll it...
