The Lounge is a great place for off-topic stuff to be moved, sometimes en masse, from device and other tech sub-forums, as Early and others are saying.
I remember a bit of resistance to the move out of those threads from the particular device forum because they were "only for (fill in the blank) users, so leave the thread here in the general phone/tab area."
Then some resisted the "intrusion" of those thread in the Lounge.
But like EM said, those that don't fly will drop out, and those that do serve the Lounge area for what the Lounge area is supposed to be: a lounge ("watering hole" always does a double conjure up for me: place of mammal or pachyderm gathering to tank up on water, and place of human gathering for tanking up on Bass Ale and gossip).
<---- well, that looks like a Pepsi, but you get the idea.
