The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
To be fair to all the last three days have consisted of a weekend and a 'snow day' so I doubt there was much activity. I'm fully expecting the soapbox to degenerate into a haven for sex jokes that only virgins would find funny any minute now though.
I think we need another option on the report / flag button for "Does not belong in this forum".
Maybe select that, get to pick another forum, then if 5? people agree off it goes.
I also think downvoting in the Soapbox would be valid. You could punish the crap jokes and flame wars can be funny at times, you just don't want them filling up the lounge. Perhaps downvoting without loss of rep so it doesn't put people off posting or arguing.

If the spec or requirements stated that it's a time field, then it's a bug - nothing more, nothing less. I would have no hesitation in my company fixing that "Free Of Charge" because it's clear what it should be.

They say that putting in validation for an actual time is a change request and needs paying for.
If the spec indicated the field would be validated, it's a bug (and should be fixed per the provisions of the contract). If the spec indicated the field would not be validated, it's a change request. If the spec didn't indicate whether or not the field would be validated, it's a bad spec.
