The only reason this forum seems to be teeming with nonsense is because of the fact that every time the threads are added to, they jump to the top!<br><br>Can we lobby to have that system changed? I mean, it's convienent and all- and I for one initially thought it was a GOOD system, but now I see how it can be royally abused...<br><br><br>[color:orange]Hey!

First of all, please accept my appoligy for the doughnut thing. I'll accept responsibility for bringing up Krispy Kream and cold milk. Yea, it did get out of hand. For that I am sorry. I am new to this and was a lurker for awhile. When I joined the biggest threads were "What" and "Lurkers". What was super, it fired me up to play with PS. Lurkers was OK, I did not understand what it was about, but I think I do now. Observing what I did when I first joined, I thought that was the norm. I am very serious when I say I get much enjoyment from reading the posts, watching the banner between friends (and foes). This site and most of the threads make me laugh, challenge me and instill the desire to try new things "WHAT".<br><br>I benefit from being past of a community with a common interest and look forward to checking out what is new and which direction things are headed. I want to be part of this community, not a hit & run poster! <br><br>If you felt that I got out of control, I'am sorry. I will try not to let it happen again. OK...I am back now...being much wiser about perceptions and reactions. <br><br>
yeah...after hitting a few threads the past few days, i realized that i'd have to be a little bit more discriminatory in how i selected threads to read. approaching 100% BS is easy to ignore and i was doing this far too often with most of the threads. 25% BS to 75% substance seems very doable. heck 50:50 would be a huge improvement (imho). <br><br>at least we're talking about it now...and i don't feel like the big spoilsport bringing it up by myself. whew! (humor me and let me think i am not a spoilsport-- thanx)<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I like that Sean 25% and 75% idea.<br>That Lurker thread was just to insane. I posted once on page 6 and never went back. In fact that thread caused me to change my view from expanded to collasp.<br><br>I like to view in expanded mode because I can see "Who" is posting in a thread and I can read their post titles which also gives a clue to whats inside.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by carp on 10/16/02 03:47 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
i switched from expanded to collapsed for the same reason. like you, i like to see the changing subject lines (post titles) and how the threads themselves break down, etc. as soon as lurkers falls off of the main page, i think i'll switch back to expanded. whahoo!<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
