Almost every forum I've posted on, I noticed this interesting pattern. The Offtopic/Miscellaenous forums are the most popular by far.
The offtopic sub-forum has by far the most posts. Way more posts than any of the other sub forums. I think this is because people like to discuss offtopic things which deviate from the main topic of the forum. This site's offtopic forum has 600,000 posts (it compromises of 1/4 of all of this forum's posts).
Anyone has explanations for this interesting phenomenon?
