I agree. He is just one of a lot of people who like to see their names in print. If they're willing to write a well-reasoned essay, I won't complain, but it's all going too far.

If you wrote in double-sized red italics, everybody wrote in double-sized red italics

And usually they had it in Marque so it scrolled across the page. Very hard to read.

I understand what you're saying. And the worthy posts seem to be few and far between.

Well I meant they were genuine news articles. I think there was some controversy over there true worth as well.

It seems like yesterday and today have been the worst. And it won't improve until after the election -- unless someone cracks down on the vanities as a waste of bandwidth.

Back 4 years ago we had a Vanities/My Opinion category that contained most the one-line useless threads. Maybe it's time to bring it back.

BTTT.

The ridiculously large number of reposts and vanities is really getting under my skin, so I'm bookmarking this thread and bumping it each and every time I visit until the madness stops (or dies down a little, at least).

Thanks to all Mods for working so hard to keep the flood of reposts to a mere trickle. If this sort of thing tries my patience, I can imagine how much it tries yours.

BTT. We may have to revert to the older policies of seriously hazing any newbie for any reason whatever or better, none at all. Folks, believe me, it used to be a very, very intimidating place to post. And we didn't have this stuff we've seen the last couple of days.

LOL - I'm not sure they were threats, exactly. Newbies would just disappear and you'd find their battered bodies in Chat...then the Admin Mods came around and brought law to Dodge City. Nowadays we can't treat 'em like pinatas anymore...mostly... ;-)

PLEASE!

No one is vainer than I,
No one is happier to read other people's ideas than I,
but it has become insane around here the Vanities posted willy-butt-whompass all over the place!

Breaking news? How is someone getting an idea breaking news? (Unless one has never had one then granted, it should be celebrated).

It is outta control
A blizzard,
A landslide,
A a a, whole mess'a too many self-authored posts.

Maybe we could have a forum called 'I'm So Vain"? Or "Stop Me Before I Post Again"?

Horse has been out of barn a long time. Ban the vanity people for a week or whatever. That will stop the nonsense.

And the ZOT 30,000 post is far from humorous.

Get back to business. Election time is near.
