Actually it isn't exactly an "opinion" its more of a desire....

a "request' if you will....

The mods seem lenient, but if a topic has a potential to turn into a brawl, it gets locked.

There is no off-topic section per se where Spam and totally off-topic threads would have their place. The boards are meant to discuss Star Trek related topics, since there is no real off topic section this means off topic threads will be closed.
If it can be moved it will be moved.

Any further questions in regards to moderation please discuss with a CM or Mod in PM, i for example usually reply my PMs as soon as i can, sometimes you have to be patient.

If you want to discuss the lack of an off topic board, go ahead, but please do not discuss moderation.

Probably because they didnt want to have to moderate it.

Isnt the discussion of an off topic forum itself off topic since this is a gameplay discussion board not a forum dicussion board?

You hit the nail right on the head. It really annoys me that they'd get rid of it just to avoid some extra work, but I guess we'll have to live with it.

Yes it has, no it hasn't argument is pointless.

Please read the forum.

Cliff Notes: this is a "community", talking off topic amongst peers is expected and normal, while strenthing the community. It is common to have an off topic in forums, and we've had one and it was removed without explanation.

"We" need our off topic forum. If You don't want it, don't post in it.

I have yet to hear WHY we shouldn't have one.

Anyone?

EDIT: Dionaea chimmed... that's the first time I know of, without consequence. Certainly a Lack of Mod problem.

Wrong. You want it, but you certainly dont need it. And Cryptic certainly isnt obligated to provide it if they dont want to moderate the inherrant political, religious, and various other socially offensive subjects which always spring up in OT.

Nope, its Star Trek Online Discussion. Unless you dont think the forums are a part of the game

More likely they didnt like what was being said in the OT boards is prolly why they were closed
