Thread: AND THE OFFICIAL THREAD KILLER IS .....

  1. #1

    Default AND THE OFFICIAL THREAD KILLER IS .....

    Admin note: Originally entitled "Do you at times feel as though you’re the “Thread Killer”?"

    It's apparent that the rambling, random thought thread was enjoyed by many, even though it consumed considerable effort by moderators to ensure that it remained in compliance with rules and policies. In order to address both matters, let's again attempt to offer you the opportunity to once again enjoy this meandering non-congruent-themed thread. In order to address the 2nd concern we'll post the following disclaimer and agreement.

    By posting in the thread, you agree that your postings and content may be removed without warning, consideration or reason. You agree that any submission deemed by CPF moderators or administrators to be unsuitable, offensive, or contrary to CPF's rules or policies may be removed at their discretion.

    The previous two threads:
    Part One
    Part Two

    Enjoy - your enjoyment is important to us!

    And now, here's Pops' original post:


    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"!

    Ooh! It's like a part three!

    I tried to resurrect a great old thread the other day and couldn't even do that right.

    Edit: Thanks Empath.

    Gee-Wizzz, I've been away from the Cafe for a month or so. Clicked the Cafe, and thought I was seeing things! So, I guess the "Thread Killer" title is still up fur grabs! May be we should all sing the Sheep Herding Wabbit song to celibrate!

    I wonder if there's a way to have a running counter on "Time since last post"... that way we could see who is winning

    Not so fast Pops, I've still got something to say and this is as good a place as any to say it.

    When a member sells a light on the Market Place, why does he feel it an acceptable practice to place all the risk of shipping on the purchaser? Insurance is cheap, the price of a good beer. Buyer and seller split the difference, then no matter what happens both are covered.

    It wouldn't bug me so much if it wasn't so prevalent.

    Guys, this is a hobby, most of the time when you buy a light then decide to let it go, you're not going to break even.

    Well isn't it better to have a chance, then take that chance, then to never have taken that chance at all?

    Are you sure you know how to drive this thing? It sure is big! Hey! Can I drive? Why is your dog growling at me, am I in his seat? Can I change the radio? Slow down. Can we stop? I can't go to the bathroom while we're moving. When do we eat? I'm hungry. Are you hungry? Turn up the A.C. it's hot in here. Man, I love road-trips, don't you Pops?

    Loved the Redhead's music since he was from my time! His music was going on during the "Industrial Music" generation! ....


    Love Swing Out Sister as well!








    PS IMO the Redhead should've hit Vegas. I think he would've been a great Headliner for one of the Casinos!

    It does feel like we're trying too hard. People (the usual suspect) are being silly purely for the sake of being silly...

    If you guys don't enjoy this thread, and obviously don't want to spend any energy attempting to better it, why don't you just ignore it? Serious question. I'd really like to know.

    +1, we definitely need a score board. Zombie thread can't be killed, but we sure can shoot at it for a looong time!

    Okay, it's not gay, but it's sure wild, wacky and impossible to steer, though...

    We're just rusty... or perhaps the thread is finally ready to let someone kill it for real.

    Good point. Or maybe it is yet another couple of disguised attempts at killing the thread? What was the point of this thread again??
