Default Moving threads to appropriate boards

Do the moderators move threads to their appropriate boards, or does no one care where folks post?

I've come across a couple of threads just today that were not posted in the appropriate board. One was a beautiful HDR picture in Photography Talk, the other was a discussion about lens fungus in the Business board.

If we aren't going to keep boards on-topic and sweep up behind lazy posters who won't take time to properly post, then why not just have one huge hole to throw all the posts into?

Steve

As an Admin for another photography site (I'm not saying which one, simply because I'm not fishing for members) I can attest to the fact that it's tough to see all posts.
If there is one in the wrong place, I will move it.

But it's much easier to find these things if people report them.

I thought that was for "button pushing" if the post was obnoxious or similar.

Is that also the way to highlight if a post is in the wrong forum?

For anything that requires an admin's attention. Mods dont check every thread. Like Killjoy, I am a mod on another board (for hockey. All NHL teams) and I rarely even look at all the threads in my section, let alone the others.
