Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
What is BS?
This age old discussion needs to be resolved. Is it only counted if it does not come from horses? Does it have to be anonymous to qualify? Or, contrary-wise, does it have to be of known origin to be True BS?
How much fact can be included in BS without disqualifying it as true BS?
Purists argue that including links is modernism, not true BS. Counter-arguments are made that modern BS is perfectly valid BS, even with links.
What criteria should we use to arrive at a consensus and establish a universal standard for all?
