The Right Way and the Wrong Way to Encourage a Poster to Move a Thread

Wrong Way: "Arggh, oh how could you? You are thoughtless and cruel. This a better forum for this thread, but you are too incompetent to think of it. Move this thread or Ghod will stike you down and make you eat asparagus for the rest of eternity."

Right Way: "There is a better forum and you really should look into moving this thread. The other forum can accomodate material such as this, as you will acknowledge once you've given it some thought."

Speak calmly, not from frustration. Frustration only alienates people and makes them loath to follow your advice.
One dagger is a plot point. A thousand daggers is inventory. Thank you for disrailing this thread.
I prefer to speak rudely and make them just go away.


Now get off my lawn.

Some people just don't listen when you tell them calmly. ;)

*Two points about this gag. Firstly, every writer of anything makes typos and I’m no different. It’s “there but for the grace of God go I” rather than schadenfreude here. The second is something called Muphry’s Law (no, it is Muphry’s, not Murphy’s) which states that any piece correcting or laughing at a typo, spelling or grammatical mistake will contain at least one worse than the original being complained of.
Also, this thread would probably be better off in ComBus. It is a more appropiate forum to discuss things related to things like this. People that frequent that section are more likely to be receptive to this type of thread.

Howdy folks,

I have moved this thread to Community Business where it is more on-topic.

Thanks.

Through all the growth it was a wonder you could see me. BTW, the marmots are wondering when you're  going to weed the place. (Bad hay fever you see.)
