Is there a direction regarding thread moving?
Tom's right: we did decide that we would avoid thread moving unless there was a very good reason (namely, porn outside of sexuality or at the OPs request). I don't mind having my threads moved either, but I can understand why someone who wanted a certain audience or perspective might have a problem with us moving it onto another stage.
Besides, just like with your Outfoxed thread, topic lines are frequently blurry. I really don't want to make it a practice of running around second-guessing members' judgement calls. I'm trying to move away from the helplessly anal control-freak livius, not indulge her.
