    I would imagine a poll would be next...

    That's a really good question. I think it'd be wise to open another thread that's a poll so we can vote on it. Comments should be allowed too.;o)
  • charlatan13charlatan13 Member Posts: 118
    Maybe give it a catching title such as #41999 back in stock due to increased demand - a few people might click on it.

    I'm sorry. I don't swear in the forums but..."For F**k's Sake!!"

    Humorous. I love it ;)

    I object to this post as it is biased against my people, and is therefor prejudice against my kind.

    I can't believe you actually made this thread.... haha

    Somehow I missed this. I think this thread was good levity to all the "drama (short a sounds please)" tension today.

    ^ I'm not sure, we might need a poll to decide that

    How about we just display images of what we think about the reseller conversations.

    Anyone want to post a picture of a herd of horses being flogged to death?

    I hate the dead horse beating thing. Isn't 90% of the reseller thread repeating the same thing (ie beating a dead horse) Doesn't mean it should be closed.

    It should be closed in my opinion because like an "a$$hole" everyone has an opinion. Why does everyone have to express their opinion? You like it or you don't. Why do we offer a soapbox for people to get up and broadcast their view on this subject. We know it's polarizing. Has anything positive come out of the debate?

    Isn't that one of the major components of an Internet forum? A place to share your opinions? Not trying to be a jerk here - but without that aspect this place would be pretty boring.

    I'm guessing you mean the original thread rather than the poll about the thread!

    I've dipped in and out and been an a$$hole in there too, so can offer some insight without you having to wade in. Believe it or not there has actually been some positive stuff buried in there amongst the horror. I think my impression is correct; that the majority of the main commentators have agreed that 'reselling stuff' should not bleed out of 'reselling threads'.

    Also, we are now discussing the Zombie Apocalypse which is cool. Like an a$$hole, I'm trying to encourage it.

    Those who want it closed: People who are unable to not read a thread they don't like.

    Those who want it open: Those who can not click something they don't care about.

    See... now this is what I should've done, instead of 'bumping' the reseller thread... (far too subtle... and of course missed, given the nature of said thread getting pages-worth of comments per hour).

    But the worse part, is the only 'like' it got was given to the guy who laughed! LOL

    (Like applauding the audience for clapping!)

    @Yellowcastle- As a fairly new forum member, I am usually just on the outside of the inside jokes, and I only sometimes get the sarcasm, so I have to ask, are you serious with this topic, or are you trying to make a point about the absurdity that the discussions on this topic have reached?

    A thing you should know about @Yellowcastle is that he is never serious, unless he's serious.

    You Know a Thread Should Be Closed When.......

    1 - Annoying GIF's start appearing.

    Ahh just close the lot - all three threads. It's getting old now.
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    The original has kinda closed itself, not been on-topic for ages and I think those still reading it like it that way! I think it should stay open (forever), as when (not if) this all flares up again, most people will know exactly what the contents of the thread will be and can safely ignore it.

    But I agree the admins should shut this thread and the poll as these have definitely run their course. The poll has shown no clear majority and once that is acknowledged, this thread serves no purpose in existing either.

    One unforeseen consequence of the last few days is that popcorn futures rose while the rest of the U.S. stock market tanked. ;-)
