Just an observation, and a simple question for those interested in voicing an opinion.
I've noticed in most threads ( not all ) that it doesn't take long before they drift into a mass of irrelevant banter. Whether it be stand-up style, in this case sit down style comedy, or point proving at all costs, beyond the pale that is, and the useless attacks, some personal in nature.
Now I'm well aware that I'm probably guilty of this to a degree, but having checked most of the post's those responses are usually posted in response to those kinds of things mentioned above. WTF is that anyway.
It's difficult to communicate when some jump to conclusions via assumptive thoughts that most often arise from " NOT GRASPING WRITTEN WORD AND IT'S INTENT " WTF is that?
I've concluded that it most often has to be done on purpose for one reason or another, I have my ideas about all of that BS and why it's done but that's for another long winded thread. It just seems as if people are itching to prove they know more than most anyone else, surely we can all agree that that is total BS. So what's it leave when you boil it all down.
Doesn't it make sense that if you can't, don't, or simply won't refrain from sticking the needle that you're derailing threads on purpose? I'm no stick in the mud by any means, but pissing all over someones thoughts or words just for shits and giggles is getting old. Being an x athlete I can jab/stick the needle as well, if not better than most. Maybe I should start a thread about cracking wise, or pissing toxic lame one liners, or jokes. Nothing sucks worse than a lame joke?
Oh well I'm sure you get the idea!
