I've noticed many new folks on the forum. Welcome! I lurked for a long time before I finally posted.
I've also noticed that there are many posts in the "Discuss Detroit" forum that don't belong there.
Below, I've cut and pasted the descriptions of the three main forums as highlighted in the FAQ.
1. ---------Discuss Detroit
Only topics that concern Detroit are permitted in this forum. Discuss Detroit is the original core forum started in 1999 and is dedicated to any topic that relates to Detroit as defined above.
When you enter DetroitYES website, it is the topic list of Discuss Detroit that greets you.
Here you will find lively and informed discussions about our great international metropolis and meet some of the most unabashedly pro-Detroiters on the planet. Enjoy!
2. -----------Detroit Connections
This forum is for discussion among forum members, announcements, making connections, call outs, and mutual assistance.
As is the nature of forums, familiarity among members grows over time. As these forums evolved and grew in size, a need arose for an outlet of intra-member discussion that was not necessarily about Detroit. To meet that need Detroit Connections was created.
In the case of DetroitYES, this further lead to the occurrence of many friendships, meet-ups, cooperative efforts and gatherings. For example, the informal FSC [forum social club] has gathered weekly, for several years now, at different pubs in downtown Detroit. Announcements as to its roving location is typical of the type of ‘connections’ post you will find in Detroit Connections. [BTW, if you are interested in attending an FSC gathering, you are sure to find yourself warmly welcomed.]
Other typical posts include requests for assistance for housing by new arrivals in Detroit, where to get services, call outs for other forum members and not- for-profit announcements.
3. -------------Non-Detroit Issues
While we are all about Detroit, we are also people of the world. Again as we grew, a need for discussion of things not Detroit grew. To keep them from spilling over into Discuss Detroit and Detroit Connections, we created Non-Detroit issues.
By far the most heated and partisan of the three main forum, Non-Detroit Issues is a venue for a mix of heated political debates, whimsical happenings and web discoveries and more. Warning: Bring a thick skin, keep your cool and remember to keep your self respect and that for others.

If you need any proof of that, take a look at the partial birth thread over there. Ugh, that got ugly. Pretty predictable with Karl starting it though.
