Yes why not post hints and tips as long as the Forum doesn't become overloaded with them. Where to post them? Well.....I suppose Speakers Corner really unless it might be something that might help someone with a problem in which case I suppose the Helproom. I don't know if we'd want another Forum, we've got eight already although 3 I never go into as they're not my thing.
Why not debate matters of law, I see no harm in it as long as no one starts being offensive in which case the FE will take care of it.
You want to start a thread on speed cameras then go ahead but I'm almost certain that was covered before so it might be old rope.
It wasn't long ago the Speakers Corner was opened up to virtually anything you want to speak about and I personally find it refreshing, a nice break from the computers questions. Of course some people probably don't feel that way. Before the postings had to be computer related in some way. Now almost anything goes as long as you're not being offensive to someone.
Regarding your original posting bugle I did get it and I mean no offence by saying this but it was a bit abrupt and I did think at the time some of the people who were new to computers would have had no idea at all what you meant.
