i had expected to find only comments from the grinches here
a pleasant surprise to find comments from many others
You don't think that telling people to "change the name of the thread" to be "more creative" and suggesting that peoples post be removed or modified to fit the fucking topic and otherwise trying to change the ENTIRE board dynamic, to suit HIMSELF, is a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit much?
i've only suggested this a few times,
for reasons that remain valid to me
in general, i like thread evolution/drift/turns,
but not thread hijackings, especially in threads like
- the few game threads that stop working for their intended purpose
if turned into yet another of the 1,000's of discussion threads
- congratulatory threads, including birthday threads
rude to make a member read though off topic discussion
as part of his birthday celebration
unless you know the person well, and are sure they will enjoy it
and my observation on the old and new boxes,
is that this is usually what people do here on the box,
is recognize that those threads are different and
not hijack them ...
... except when i'm involved ...
there is a third case, i remember, when i was
musing/specualting about how to make sure the
hoax thread would stayed marked a hoax
the box's mods have handled that well enough,
in simpler ways then i brainstormed about
