My word -- haven't you ever been on a forum that's fully ripened before? It always starts with idiots who say idiotic things and try and defend them even though they're idiots (a couple recent threads here are point on, no doubt the seeds for the rest of the process). Then come the trolls who say idiotic things just to annoy people who can't stand idiots. Then come the flames -- nice and toasty roasty -- usually flaming the trolls who the flamers mistake for the idiots -- that's when the fun starts. It's the legal threats that really get it going big time, they're mainly serious and from the idiots, though trolls toss them in for good fun. Throw in a couple of "Hitlers" and you've got yourself one fine forum.

Glad to know it was just me, as most of the regulars disagree. Although I'm still waiting for a thread here to reach a point where it conforms to Godwins Law

Godwins Law



surely the "hoax that is the 1.41 % " thread will soon satisfy the conditions if it has not already
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

I just read the intro on that page.

You're a sick puppy.

Is that negative enough for ya? :)

On a plus side, you're my kind of sick. I'd love to hang in a casino with you sometime!

Then I read more of that page.

Did you want to end this conversation, but lack the power to lock the thread?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

... And then I read the entire Wikipedia page.

And noticed an interesting external link:
"I Seem to be a Verb"; Mike Godwin's commentary on the 18th anniversary of Godwin's Law

I just got done reading that commentary.

And now I have to thank you for mentioning it. Food for thought and all that.

"Godwin's Law" was why I referenced "Hitler" in my commentary above. Thanks for the link.

yeah, I guessed, so thought I'd enlighten people to my favourite law since the second law of thermodynamics.

Better to blow off some steam on a message board instead of doing something stupid outside of cyber space and paying for it one way or another.

In all fairness, this thread is kinda negative, too.
