If we're going to consolidate Conne's threads can we start a "What's depressing Kunk today" or some other sort of mid-life crisis thread? Its a human quaalaude around here lately.

Seems a simple way to decide if an death warrants its own thread would be to allow any of the 20,000 or so other users of SF to start any obit threads they want and restrict Conne to his dedicated obit thread. If nobody but Conne cares enough to start a thread it probably was not a significant death.

On reflection, this seems correct.

If I may opine, I hate this "lets ban X", "lets not let "X" start any new threads", "lets not have threads about X". When you look at most of the sub forums here, they are very vibrant. A lot of it is crap,but there is useful information and informed posters pretty much everywhere. I've seen a bunch of forums (timezone for one) that one from this type of vibrancy to a gestapo like environment where a ton of people/topics get banned and 5 people post the same boring stuff over and over. I am all for more posters, more threaks rather than less, even if that means the inevitable crap/disturbing threak. If Conne is annoying, he can always be ignored. While I disagree with a lot of what he says, at least he has a legitimate opinion and on most subjects he educates himself before talking. Dumb threaks is dumb threaks, not sure why people are expecting a "salon" type of discourse when they step in there. Obviously there is a line (dictures for one) but is using the word "ghey" really that big a deal? I would like to see more misspelled curse words rather than usuing the correct spelling as I think that attracts spammers. Anyway, my worthless two cents, what will be done will be done. Just hate for this to become a ACAC, where a couple of approved posters take up most of the topics.

I know this may be a radical idea, but hear me out. You don't have to read every thread. I know. I know. Crazy, huh? Generally, I go through this process. First, I read the thread title. Second, I decide a) does this thread sound interesting or b) does this thread sound boring. If "b," then I don't read it. Revolutionary? Perhaps. But sometimes it takes just one person to step forward with these kind of world changing ideas. If Conne wants to waste his time making 20 threads about The Band, then great. Doesn't mean you have to waste your time actually reading them. Don't blame Conne. Blame yourself.

I don't read them, I am complaining because they interfere with the flow of the forum WITHOUT reading them. If I had to read all the crap he posts, I'd probably shoot myself. Unfortunately his threads shit up everything by the mere fact that they exist and clog up the new posts page.

This is exactly the current problem.

but that typically self corrects. Boring/annoying threads won't get a whole lot of traffic. Poster will eventually tire out. It's already happened with one poster that used to clog up Dumb threads with the dumbest crap. After a few weeks, he barely starts new threads. I guess my point is, it's better when the "market" decides what is good/bad, leads to more vibrancy. Again, it's just my opinion.

I keep waiting for Conne to get tired of posting boring/crap, but i think I may become old and die first. I am 29. I might not be able to wait that long.

I feel that after twenty thousand something posts, I should divulge my strategery. I actually don't read any threads, and respond anyway. It works quite well, and there is no way to have as many posts as I do if you actually read what other people write.

You take better care of yourself than Conne, and only have 1/2 Irish genes. My money is on you outliving him.
