To add: If you want something to get worked up about go and study the Sun. What is (or perhaps one should say is not) happening with our Sun is way more serious than a small earthquake of Oregon and will have far more effect on ALL our lives in the the next few decades.
I really think it is. You are more than able to disagree with me as you do have that right.
Everyone who posts 'get ready' messages on this thread are just letting people know that there are ways to at least be more prepared in specific earthquake zones, especially with uptick of seismic activity. This, after all, is an earthquake discussion thread

We all know there will be a big one but we also are fairly sure that it is not going to be right now if for no other reason that that all the signs are not there in the opinion of the experts as well as the non-experts.

The point is that I find I find it very immature to do so, when all we are doing is collaborating on general, sometimes specific earthquake discussion, just to have the thread's author come in to divert the attention elsewhere if he is not the 'original' quake finder'.
If this was not occurring, I would not have people star my comments on this matter.
