Re: thread name changes.

We've surely all noted the various incarnations that the
titles of certain threads have, uhm, incarnated. I presume
this is the playfulness of our fearless leaders at, uhm, play.
I would agree that some of the threads deserved this, and
wouldn't presume to suggest the end of this practice. In
fact, I offer this post in sacrifice in the hope that the
thread title shift paradigm be appropriately self-referentially
applied repeatedly.

Respectfully yours.

I quote from the sticky "PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING"
"Gratuitous thread starters will be prostituted...."

(* ahem *)

It's (my italics): "Gratuitous redundant-thread starters will be prostituted ..."

I think we're supposed to ask ourselves, "Is this thread-I'm-about-to-start-for-free really necessary?", not "Am I being paid for this thread-I'm-about-to-start?" :-)

At the risk of me laboring the issue [or if you prefer, eating a dead horse], I would add that the phrase ""Gratuitous redundant-thread starter" is itself gratuitously redundant.

I would definitely prefer to see you eating a dead horse. Could you post an MPEG please?

I`m afraid my answer to that shall have to be "neigh" ... we can`t have such a family-friendly forum saddled with such gory imagery. But please re-mane calm, no need to bridle at my declination of your request ... just use your imagi-neigh-tion, my dear friend from Whinny the Pooh land.

Well, we would certainly hope no one is paying you to add that, for either the first, or any subsequent, time.

This whole thread is a series of jokes.

Stop spamming us. You're ruining the fun.
