The Royal Forums website comprises some 175 forums, subforums and sub-subforums to which members have access. Within this organised structure there are over 16,000 thread topics containing a total of over 1.4 million posts.
The subforum in which this thread is located is titled "Royal Chit Chat
". Therefore no-one should be surprised that it may not be particularly educational, enlightening, or factual. It contains everything from considered opinion, thoughtful insight and factual discussion to wishful thinking, wild speculation and ridiculous flights of fancy. Such "chit chat" may be enjoyed by some but not by others. So be it. Within the parameters laid down by TRF's owner the Forums is broad enough to encompass most shades of 'discussion' and the policy of the Admins and Mods is to avoid being overly proscriptive in relation to allowable subject matter. If this thread is not to everyone's taste there are another 16,000 to choose from.

On the contrary, I would argue that to even the most casual observer there is a vast and obvious difference between the tone, content, oversight and management of the two sites.
