Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
OK, a serious answer.
Lots of threads have lost some posts in the recent database corruption, most commonly from one end or the other. Much of the time, for various reasons, this does not matter. The answers were elsewhere, or can be recreated, or the discussion has moved on. Many, many threads come up with intersting things that are, at most, tangentally related to the subject.
MOAB is a law unto itself. We merry few here use it as a world unto itself, an escape from the seriousness of the many issues floating in the BS section, and all those above the line. Here nothing is fixed, except the lack of a fixed theme. If you have scanned this thread, then you will have seen the stars of Shatner, Spatulas and Swedes wax and wane. We are loyal to MOAB, for we have seen mayflies of threads reach a few hundred posts and peter out, and we know that MOAB will be here, and we will take it to glory, and to stop that flaming ted getting post 10K....
Hope that helps.
