How am I supposed to consider the merits of someone's posts unless I know how popular they are?


Aside from whipping it out and measuring I find post count is the best way of determining a Foron's, or Foran for you conservatives, worth.

This is the kind of quality stuff that gets someone in the top 3. I stand by my list of Sheppy's.

Except you always flip the ruler over to the metric side when it's your turn.

I took a couple days off last week, so I'm behind. Caught rrnate's favorite band, Afghan Whigs, in Chicago on Friday and my ears are still ringing. Great show. Greg Dulli is on my list of top ten rock stars.

I'll be back at it this week.

Jason, why are you so obsessed with boring bar rock bands that feature dudes who can't sing? (Afghans, Hold Steady, etc.)

I understand that it's a free country, but if you are going to patronize (thanks Meade!) these artists, we might have to curb your freedoms a wee bit.

It all makes sense now. The build-up, the delays. I gotta say, I didn't realize the kind of pull that the Isthmus has. I mean, it's always been a very well regarded left-leaning paper and the forum itself has been very highly rated in the past and does include some members from outside of Wisconsin.....but to bring in the POTUS himself, backed by the BOSS, this Monday morning, the day before the goddamn ELEction, to announce the TOP 3 Forons before a crowd of thousands !

Well done people, well done.

bullet-proof vest. mainly to nurture my sense of victimization, but I'm nothing if not prudent.

Fine, I apologize for suggesting that Jason is engaging in a high school-esque popularity contest. I guess I just don't see the point in telling literally dozens of regular posters that you don't value their contributions.

That was a shitty apology.

Carry on...

pj, as another person who was always left standing alone when teams were picked in high school gym class (close to 50 years ago), I'm with ya. I don't want to be a turd about small stuff it's not necessary to be a turd about, but... yes.

I always thought it was a pre-Title IX thing, but apparently it's not just women.

Eh, I completely agree with you and sno, peej. it's a stupid trick by Jason to try to somehow make the forum more active, get more hits, some such. And it ignores the many forons (all but ten) who have contributed a lot over the years.

You guys are all gonna be so embarrassed when #1 turns out to be "Everyone Else".

Except for me. I'm still convinced I came in at #11.
