It can be argued that jasong is on-topic in post #30 -- he's replying to post #1 in this very thread.

But this thread's title and choice of subforum placement by the OP seem to have ruled out the Fed itself as a proper topic here.

Suggests the question: Under what circumstances can a direct response to post #1 of a thread be off-topic for that thread??

IMO, it depends...

Does the response contribute to the overall debate? Not all responses do.

IMO, one should be comfortable bringing forward an issue for debate, so long as one debating the issue is comfortable doing so.

Does non-contributory = off-topic ?

Love you both, and you've saved me from resorting to using my PM box, which is restricted to 11 posts in total.

@Kieren: Stir it up

@Paul: How are you fixed for 4th April 1314?

For the record, I would very much appreciate it if discussion was civil, sincere and meaningful.
