Just an observation - I don't have any strong views about this either way.

There's one group of people on the "How was your day?" thread who are trying to chat about their daily life as usual, and another who are trying to have a discussion about the Shamima Begum case. I'm not in either group, so I don't have a personal agenda here, but it's clearly causing a certain amount of difficulty as is apparent from PDR's post 1313888:

The Shamima Begum discussion would seem to be a suitable candidate for a transfer to the WFHIT sub-forum. I appreciate that it would cause extra work for the moderators, though. There have been 21 posts so far by my reckoning:

As I said, I'm neutral on this, so I just want to know what people think.

FWIW, I think it should be carefully pruned and transplanted to WFHIT as a thread of its own. I think it has been done before.

I'll check that idea out later - seems like a good idea. I'm just reading through the forums now, but I have a dentist appointment in about an hour so I have to go out soon and I don't want to leave the thread-splitting half way through.

OK job done - Shamima Begum posts are now in their own thread in WFHIT

Thanks. The vote was inconclusive as it went 1-1, but I appreciate the time you've put into this.
