The best thread ever!
21:47:58 Jul 5th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:

Many people like to complain on forums that some thread(s) is/are boring, need cleanup, etc.

Okay, what is the best thread then or what kind of thread is truly worth being on e.g. this "Miscellaneous Discussions" forum?

Yeah yeah, I know it's not this thread, but I did not ask what is not worth being here.

I asked what is worthwhile discussion here?

In my opinion, these general forums (Misc & The hangaround) are all for curiosity and entertainment. The hangaround forum even more so. Isn't this forum (Misc Discussions) meant for serious discussion about pretty much anything?

Of course many readers are in their adolescence and incapable of resisting the temptation to make fun of others, even if it was against the forum rules. And of course us old farts make the same mistake every now and then as well... I guess the world is more fun when you can pick on others and get picked by them. Boys are boys, and I guess we never grow up anyway.

Ok, you can throw your rotten tomatoes and vernacular eggplants. Tell me I am nothing and I will never become anything. Tell me that my only success is in being left completely and utterly alone.

(Oh, and don't forget to make the point that I must have no life, since I'm writing here so much.)

Have you ever heard anything similar? What is good and acceptable discussion on Internet forums that will make you rich and beautiful, and bring you tons of excellent friends, who would give their life for you?

If it's not debateable it's not worth being in miscellaneous discussion.  That's what I think.


02:01:07 Jul 6th 07 - Sir Pelagius Septim II:

Hey, I debate that!


00:02:22 Jul 8th 07 - Mr. Killer:

You won't get many posts if you can't debate it. It's not very fun looking at one post, but then again, it takes far too long to read over 100 posts if they're long. And Sakaal I find this remark very unfair: "Of course many readers are in their adolescence and incapable of resisting the temptation to make fun of others, even if it was against the forum rules." I wouldn't mind if you said the majority, but it is very unfair to make a generalisation like that. Whereas about old fogies you said: "And of course us old farts make the same mistake every now and then as well... I guess the world is more fun when you can pick on others and get picked by them." More teenagers make fun of people, but not ALL. Find me one post that I made fun of somebody in. Not impossible... but you'll be lucky if you find one before giving up. And you're not too old... you're only what, 30 something... And this is definitely not going to be the best thread either... Terrible topic. I suppose you could say I insulted your thread... but that doesn't count. It's not being mean really... and about the final line: "Have you ever heard anything similar? What is good and acceptable discussion on Internet forums that will make you rich and beautiful, and bring you tons of excellent friends, who would give their life for you?" Have you ever seen a discussion on Internet Forums that would make you rich and beautiful? And bring tons of excellent friends? A good thread is a debatable one, but not too offensive. There may be the occasional curse or two, but you can just ignore those people.

"Hmmmmmmmmm, my life is changed"

*Tiber sits down with a strange look on his face...


00:17:15 Jul 8th 07 - Mr. Killer:

I didn't say you couldn't change a person's life from a post, merely that you can't get riches etc. from it.

11:22:40 Jul 8th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:

Killer, peace. This was not aimed specially at you. It is just a general reminder about the discussion on any Internet forums. No matter where on the Internet you write, the dynamics are always the same.

All too often:: Internet forums = boys with flamethrowers trying to find anything that moves and burn it

For example now we are flaming about flaming...

I even tried to include some humour in my original post (including the topic), but I guess my sense of humour can sometimes seem a bit serious to many. If you read this post for example, it is actually very humorous, but if taken all seriously, could be used as an excuse to start the World War III.


15:21:22 Jul 8th 07 - Mr. Killer:

I know you didn't aim it at me... just a bit of it at all teenagers, one of which I happen to be. You don't actually need an excuse to start a World War, I mean, what was the reason of the first and second World Wars? Trying to dominate the world... blah blah blah. You can have a great empire but you're not going to get to control the whole world. Wars are just a reason for blood-thirsty people to kill other people and animals, plants etc. Anyway, a good topic is one that doesn't make people wander off the subject, like this one... If there was enough moderators though, you could get rid of all the stupid posts that stupid people put in, but that would take a lot of people, and one of them would be bound to mess with it.

this is the worst thread i have ever had the misfortune to stumble across.....im sorry someone had to say it >.<!!
