On top of discussion around journalism, media activism, and information security, Tinfoil is also intended to help build community and connections among those who care about these topics. That doesn't mean we have to talk about these topics. To that end, I've opened up an off-topic category for unrelated discussion.
One difference between this category and others is that off topic threads will disappear after a few days (72 hours) after the most recent post. In other words, an off topic thread will disappear if it's not getting any responses. This will help prevent clutter and allow us to have new conversations, while maintaining the basic focus of the forum.
Off topic threads, like others here, should follow the community guidelines. For those who haven't done so, please be sure to read them here:
