Overuse of General Section

I'm bringing this to people's attention, again, because everyone is using the section General almost all the time. What's your opinion?

    Everything on the front page looks Deepworld-related to me. Are you having concerns about any threads in particular?

    Most people put their supposidly offtopic, bug, or question related threads to general.

    The reason for off topic intentionally being tagged in general is because offtopic dont go "update" back on top. As for the other two, most likely due to carelessness or laziness.

    It's mostly because people forget that the section changer even exists. (I do every single time I make a thread, it seems)

    Well with questions, it's under the out of game

    If you put the category as questions, it still shows in the main general page. It's only the commerce and off-topic categories I think. All the other categories show on the general page

    And yet this is in the General section. Interesting...

    Perhaps that was the point.

    Why Did I Pick That Avatar?

    No but I remember seeing something in ToS about trying to to use General section too much, I may be wrong.
    @Sirentist No thread in particular.
    @lisa @p1nkbr0 That was the point.

    Oh yea, congrats on making Arbiter p1nk!

    @Sirentist you are not always the important one in the general posts! STOP TAKING MY SPOTLIGHT!

    Anyways I believe the general section is used a lot because most people who make a post aren't what other sections are like the questions or come and visit. So people would choose general because most people believe that post is a general post because it's general to think that

    No one is better than anyone else, getting back on track I posted that part of ToS for all you TL;DRers.
