Instead of making a thread about threads that suck, make a thread that doesn't suck.






Or is that too logical?

that post just officially ruined this thread.

Bah! I'm in a mood today.

I think the migraine medication is helping. It makes me fuzzy, and occasionally, I like to cut loose and have a bit of fun.

Am I being overly nasty to people?

I didn't think I was, I make jokes and post memes, and i give stars and flags. Sometimes I give advice, etc.


I don't think so...did someone say you were? They probably say it about me too, and sometimes they'd be accurate. None of us are perfect, after all. But I've neither heard nor seen anything that would make me believe you were being nasty to anyone.

My birthday is in September.



Well, hopefully it won't be apocalyptic...

Wow, I guess I've got some catching up to do then. Hopefully, if the world does go to hell in the proverbial hand basket in September, we'll at least be killed by something epic. It would really suck to die of mediocre causes. Apocalyptic earthquakes would work nicely for that.



My birthday is in September.


Well, if the world ends, we know how to blame it on ...


When you said birthday blow-out, no one had any idea how literal it was going to be.

A hundred points to tigertatzen!

I totally agree with you. I have held my tongue more often than not simply to avoid that!



I can't say that I've held mine (and I won't), but I have been a lot less enthusiastic about sharing things than I once was. Which is sad because I think now, more than ever, things really need to be shared and discussed...it just becomes soul-sucking after a while to be told you're crazy/stupid/uneducated/other slanderous remarks for being bold enough to talk about certain subjects...not a lot of people can stomach that kind of derision. We are far from being an enlightened race of beings, and it's largely due to that type of intolerance. Sad, but true.

I've held my tongue on many occasions with positive results.

But you hold someone else's tongue just once and you're banned from Walmart for life!

My birthday was five days ago, so thankfully I didn't have the apocalypse hanging over me. Hmmm...too bad you can't just change your birthday to another month that's less end-of-the-world-ish...

< . 3 (so my post doesn't come up blank)

All I ever wanted was my thread moved from UFOs & Aliens to Jokes, Puns, and Pranks.




However, I 100% capitulate.

A lot of the threads lately have been kind of sucking IMO.

Here's an idea. And... oh, I don't know, maybe it's just too extreme or outright crazy to work... but at least it's an idea.


Instead of making a thread about threads that suck, make a thread that doesn't suck.






Or is that too logical?


Not illogical, but consider this.

I lurked for a long time before joining and remember threads of the "let's all research this and compile our findings" type, or "let's all find the missing thunderbird photo". Go back to some of those threads and you'll see what I'm talking about. I really miss the cooperation and encouragement between posters and it's what kept me coming back to this site for all those years.

What I see now almost every day are threads so typical of the polarization that has become the norm, such as the "I'm right, you're wrong and I'll prove it" type, whether the topic is politics, religion (especially religion), pretty much any topic anymore and somebody's going to get their undies in a bunch and get nasty. That does suck no matter how good the thread may have started out to be.

You shop at Walmart? I thought you were a classier form of rodent than that, are rabbits in the rodent family? Keeps your hands away from my tongue, I bite back.

You know they have laxatives for that condition...if you want a thread moved I bet all you have to do is request a MOD to do so.

You can blame identity politics. Gone are the days of dialectic. Gone are the days of disputation for its own sake. Now its either preaching to the choir or straight up heresy. I will side with the heresy.

Happy B-Day! The good news is that calendars really do not matter in the scheme of things. The Universe does not recognize our time frame the same way.
