    Lately I have seen several threads around here that could have quickly deteriorated into a flame fest and been closed. That was what happened with threads like that in the recent past. Instead we have been posting thoughtful, humorous and intelligent responses.
    I am starting to wonder about you my sisters and brothers. Are you okay? :p

    A few weeks ago I began thinking that my own responses to certain topics and people were actually causing threads to get more contentious. I've tried to cut way back on that.

    Same on the former, not so much on the latter. I'm not a proud man.

    It's possible. I was actually wondering that. ;)

    We have all upgraded to Grey Poupon class.

    You're welcome.
     
  15. You jest but several of the more *ahem* vocally aggressive members have been on involuntary vacation for awhile now. I'm sure that has a little to do with it.

    Agreed, although I probably am seen as falling into that camp by more than a few members.:oops:

    In this context, "members" is a serendipitously ambiguous word.

    LOL. Was going to post something clever... but then the truth of the above hit. I was hanging in a vegetarian thread the other day that went quite lovingly.

    What is going on here?

    May have to take a trip over to the lobby to see how things are cookin over there.
     
  20. Welcome to the future. I don't have a flying car or a robot maid, but mind rotting distractions are on tap. The internet contains the sum total of mankind's knowledge up until this point, as well as our theories for the future. But mostly just p0rn.
    Our utopian future has degenerated into Idiocracy.
