    Default Part 2 - Do you at times feel as though you’re the “Thread Killer”?

    Admin note: This thread is Part 2 of the original post, started by AZPops in May of 2012.
    The final post of that thread can be found here.


    You know the last one to make a post in a thread and no one relies after your post! .... Yup, sometimes I feel that I'm the "Thread Killer"!

    If there's a part 2 to this thread doesn't this mean that someone "killed" part 1?
    Or is this like an immortal jellyfish and all of the parts are just one being?

    It's all one. Every atom of matter making up every server hard drive the thread is stored on, and every electron passing through every cable to get between you, me and every one else involved in this thread was born at the same moment, and each one of us shares at least one atom that was once part of the same thing, a star or a planet.

    We are all one. Immortal. The thread cannot be killed any more than the energy stored between the quarks of your atoms of your molecules of your DNA, of your very existence can be.

    Okay, I'm here!

    I brought the chainsaw, 2x4s, gasoline, welding torch, and some mysterious liquid with Haz-mat markings on it. Let's get busy killing this . . . er, I mean . . . renovating this topic for the lovely family to move into it.

    On more than one occasion something I posted in Old #1 was thought to be in need of moderation. My bad.

    Here's to a fresh start

    But first, I'd like to say good by to an old friend: for the good times, it won't be the same.....

    .....but that's the idea, isn't it?

    The extreme length of this thread creates a value, and collection of postings that discourages its removal or closure. With that in mind, the thread will now be closed and archived for reference. The discussion can now be continued here. Its limited size should permit moderation without regret, including its removal or closure.

    Well played sir, yes sir!

    8. Whining and complaining about the rules


    CPF has rules. Just about every forum on the internet has some kind of rules. All of you are here at CPF because of how it is run and the atmosphere. There are other forums you can go to but you choose to come here. The rules exist in order to keep things running smoothly and to maintain the atmosphere that you all enjoy when you come here looking for information or to share information. You all have seen what can happen when everyone is just left to do what they want. Total chaos and disorder. How do you expect to be able to find the information you're looking for if you don't know where to start looking for it? Should we just have one big forum and you can post any topic you want in it and use any kind of language and insult other members and just generally run amok? Of course, that is a ridiculous notion. And that is why we have rules. So that your experiences on CPF are pleasant and informative and fun.


    The rules exist because someone at sometime abused CPF and rules had to be made. If everyone comported themselves as mature adults, we wouldn't have to have rules. But unfortunately, that is not how things are.


    The moderators and administrators of CPF are around in order to keep order. Do not whine or complain about the rules and do not abuse the moderators or administrators for enforcing the rules. It is very disruptive to the board when gripes take over a thread. Take them off the board in either private messages or email. The alternative is to go and start your own forum and set your own rules.

    Part 1 threads simply die of morbid obesity and spawn a new 'child' thread. FRANKENTHREAD IS REPRODUCING!!!

    Careful,though; baby threads are fragile and need to be nurtured with love, not war.

    Somebody please explain the metrosexual movement to me? Honestly, I just don't get it. Do women date guys that are prettier than they are?

    Well, Taylor Swift does.

    Then she always dumps them, and writes a hit song about it. Poor Taylor. Oh well . . . One day she'll find a real man who knows how to treat a woman.

    Well you've had about a decade to figure it out, as that's how long it's been since the term gained popularity; the person in the photo is a hipster, not a metrosexual. And if you use a vintage tube radio as a stool, I'll knock those bright n' cheery socks right off..

    Thanks StarHalo. Is there a difference, and if so, how does one go about discerning it? Or, has nothing changed but the name?

    Hipsters are hyper-groomed like metrosexuals, but they do it ironically.

    The metrosexual is a traditionally but overly stylish urbanite, the hipster is the alternative or retro style Bohemian. The metrosexual is at the club drinking some expensive vodka you've never heard of from an apertif tulip, the hipster is at the cafe drinking some expensive coffee drink you've never heard of from a 1977 Star Wars thermos.
