Dear Administrator,

On 9/25, a forum user named Seli posted a question titled "Electronic Manufacturing on the Beach". Out of 11 responses to his posting, exactly one had anything to do with his question. The other 10 were completely off topic.

Posters, and other users interested in a poster's question, should not have to wade through message after message of useless banter in search of an intelligent response. I think events like this do not reflect well on the intent of the forum. This is not the first time I have noticed this situation with responses to postings.

Is it possible to keep the discussions more technical and on topic?

Thanks. The forum is a tremendous asset to the SMT community.

I couldn't agree with you more even as one of the prime offenders of prime time space. No excuses, but often a little (less maybe) humor loosens up the croud and some begin participating though maybe as never before. Of course, negative responses can be forthcoming as well. I don't take yours as being that, but seek maybe a little more understanding of the motive.
