I am sick to the back teeth of threads being composed about other threads!

Who's with me? This has to stop!

Before you know it ATS will be a site that features threads about threads that are about threads...how absurd will that be? I, for one, refuse to take part in such a debacle! This needs to be stopped before it gets out of control, if it isn't too late already.

I think it has become part of the fabric of this site now to such an extent that some people do it without even realising they're doing it, how can people be so blind?

Isn't it?

It takes threads to make clothes though

Like this one?
Or did your humour fly over my head?

One man's thread is another man's treasure.

And here you are making a thread about threads.

Have you seen the movie "Inception"? What about the premise of having sub-threads - a thread, within a thread, within a thread? I think it could be great - as long as we have a way to "jump" back to the first original thread

You are authoring a thread about the other thread.

There's been a thread about this before.

I'm pretty right-wing about threads. I'm a nice guy and quite easy going but some lines shouldn't be crossed, you know? We should not validate such lunacy by taking part in such a thing - people who perpetate this sort of falsehood ain't not ought to be breathing nor nothing.

But a logical heirarchy of threads and sub-threads... I guess I could live with that, yes - if they're properly indexed and referenced that would be great.

I would be better than threads about threads or a thread that is about threads that are about threads, an absurd notion. If you see sucha thing call the OP out right away and shut that idiot down!

Every time there's a thread on ATS now the OP gets shot down and attacked!

That accusation was made earlier, I challenged the person making that claim to provide evidence and that person has failed to do so.

Do you know how big the carbon footprint is for this thread about hating threads about other threads is?
It's juuuuge!

40 man hours of shoveling coal or 15 virgin forest logs.

The internet doesn't run on fairy dust, it takes actually trillions of dollars and hundreds of years of research to bring us to this moment were we can just turn on the tap and let some energy leak out as we rant about wasting people's time.

How about wasting all of work that the entire history of the world produced up until this moment so you could plop down and start crunching 1's and 0's into a highly technical algorithm code to let us know how much you obviously hate this planet. Because each thread like this costs us all in the end.

Every letter you type is a direct result of the Genghis Kahn's, Marco Polo's, The Crusades, WWI, II, Nam's, Gulf I, Apple's, etc's blood sweat and tears. Lives were started and generations were built just to get to where we are today, you, throwing it all away to let us know how upset you are.

Exactly...people are so selfish, man.

Right on, and a good angle I like it. We should get the environmentalists in on this to offer us support, they're more right-wing than I am.

Let there be camps!

Let's occupy this thread and never leave no matter how off topic we get!

Occupy Thread! Occupy Thread!
What Do We Want? One Thread!
What Do We Hate? Other Threads About The Same Thread!

OCCUPY!
