This seems like a ridiculous question to ask given the existence of the message admin feature, but I managed to get sucked into a discussion about this in the chat rooms and would like some clarification.
This is the room for casual chat. Long lines of code will be moved to bin or respective rooms. Enjoy your stay!
I'm not sure I understand this reasoning. The description for Casual Chat indicates that on-topic, programming discussions will be moved to the relevant rooms, yet they don't want off-topic, non-programming related discussions moved to that room?
What's the community's thoughts on this? It was always my understanding that channels should remain on-topic and messages should be moved to more appropriate rooms if not. Arguably, a casual chat room is entirely off-topic for SO, but I don't have a problem with it being there — it serves a purpose by keeping the on-topic rooms clean.
