Threads that need to go away

Postby Mean Scenester » Tue Mar 26, 2013 3:39 pm

From the "Refuses to Die" file: There's just some shit that keeps kicking around that makes me wonder how fucking bored some of you must be, to the point that if I knew your home addresses, I'd be sending out gift certificates to Hobby Lobby.

Case #1: That Ill-Advised-From-The-Start Jeremy Ryan Thread
Talk about a thread that demeans us all. "He's sick! No he's not! Maybe he's just sick in the head! He's in trouble with the law!" I was never a fan myself, but the level to which some have chosen to dig into this guy's file is just flat-out creepy at this point. The board admins show a particular lack of discretion (not to mention shame) in my opinion for not killing this one pages ago. Want to know who, hands-down, are the biggest fucking assholes on this forum? The last several pages are a who's who. Is that alone value enough to let this cesspool of schadenfreude continue to fester? Not in my book, but then my asshole detection system is perhaps more finely honed than most.

Case #2: The What I'm Listening To Thread
I didn't care a decade ago and I care even less now. What fucking purpose does this serve? Perhaps if you told me why it is you're listening to the song in question or what you like about it this thread would have a shred of redeeming value. Now it stands as a place where bored and ignored fuckers like Meade can pop-up now and again without feeling bad that no one responds to them. As we used to say on the playground, big whoop. I will say this: Some of you listen to some godawful shit and aren't afraid to tell the world. So kudos on that score, I guess.

Case #3: The Bitching About The Ubiquity Of Lardons Thread
I'm just kidding. I really miss that one.

Post your (least) favorites. But don't come back at me about those first two because I'm not flinching and I won't grant you the time of day. Those two suck ass through a lab-grade glass pipette. That's science fact, Jack.

The Gun Thread
This forum is not about guns. Only a few people around here want to talk about gun related topics. Really, gun issues are just irrelevant today, right? Right?

Have you ever posted about guns? Have you ever posted in that thread?

Yes and yes.

Do you still think that guns are "a very small" issue in the lives of people living around Madison?

Now that this thread is a gun thread, this thread.

You can't get rid of the gun thread or it will fester and multiply like a litter of gremlins. Realistically, though, the thread is more of a prophylactic than a discussion. I guess I can't speak for lurkers, but we haven't seen any real ground given by either side and I don't suspect we ever will.

Wow. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know people had any trouble finding those.

Au contraire, large one. There are several contributors here who clearly can't find their asses with both hands.

Now that you mention it, I can only find my single-handed asses.
I think I might have left my asses with both hands in my other pants.

There's probably a joke about octopuses in here somewhere, but beats me if I can find it.

Well, since we're reasking unanswered questions, jjoyce.

'Bout time that flippin' gang-rape of intellect Jeremy Ryan thread was locked. There are some names that "grace" the last few pages of that one who should be seriously ashamed for piling on and/or take up one or more goddamn hobbies.

Fucking asshole cotillion, that one.

How about Amy Pu'z "N" whatever it is? I have to admit I never clicked it because the very title is so dumbifying. Maybe it's brilliant, but I can't bear to look. There are only so many minutes in my life.

I guess I'm asking here if I ought to peek.

Don't. Amy needs a blog.
