Good point! This may be just a training thread but it's our SoC training thread. And if anything is more conducive to training and learning than communication then I would like to hear about it. Even if I have to read about other stuff as well in the process.
So for my part I believe that discussions should be encouraged even if they degrade some. If the topic degrades too much there are always the Mods who can lock up the thread. In fact the SoC Report will simply be a thread like everything else here and probably should be and probably will be an open thread for all to Follow and comment on.
We're getting close to that day now by the way. About one more week or so, and the first SoC Report will be posted in the forums and the link to the thread sent out to all the SoC Members. Just in case anyone is wondering.
