I can't see any reason why it should have been closed. The "close thread" link is in a location where a volunteer could click it accidentally and not notice, so it may have been closed inadvertantly. Whatever the case, I don't think it should have been closed. I reopened the thread.
-Joe Offer-


Just for the sake of completness (and for those posters still with a sense of humour). The thread in question has now been closed by Joe Offer. Who now knows which anonymous volunteer fellow poster was responsible but after publicly speculating that the first closure may have ben a accident - is not at liberty to confirm to our forum - if this was in fact the case.

Perhaps 'threads have now spoken'? And have ensured - by apparently deciding now to close themselves - to be the final judge of whether they stay to to be contrubuted to - or not?

Our anonymous volunteer posters may be under the impression that they are in control - but our forum seems to have developed a mind of its own.

In spite of the treatment difficulties, patients with a paranoid disorder may function quite well. Even though their paranoid views are apparently unshakable, various treatments appear effective in improving social functioning, so that they do not often require lengthy hospitalization. The symptoms are less bizarre than those associated with paranoid schizophrenia. Also, the paranoid disorders seem to cause less disorganization of the personality and disruptions in social and family life. Unlike schizophrenia, which can become progressively worse, paranoid disorder seems to reach a certain level of severity and stay there.

Yes, Rog-o, as you can see it was redundant and covered by this thread. And no one was talking turds over there, so I exercised editorial control so that we can talk about turds. Stay on subject please. Mudelf

Does anyone wish to own up to being this Mudelf person?

I am sure it is just me - but I find it more than a little offensive that this anonymous volunteer fellow poster can insert personal comments in my posts - have a one-way conversation - issue instructions to me and their identity is witheld from me and our forum.

Whatever happened to the value of being accountable on our forum? It would appear now that the less accountable you are prepared to be - the more ability you are given to impose your judgement upon those who are always prepared to be accountable and stand by their views and actions.

Joe Offer is at least prepared to be known to our forum - when he inserts his editing comments and personal judgements into my posts. Is it really too much to ask - that those who feel themselves qualified to impose their judgement upon their fellow posters are not able to do this anonymously?

Wolfgang - not opening a Shatner thread is a very wise decision. You don't know how many hours I've agonised over the Shatner question since I first clicked into one of LH's little traps.

The flashes of bad acting and the nightmares where Bill was the leading actor in every TV production......... It's going to take years of therapy to where I can once again close my eyes without seeing that face with the little animal perched atop the balding pate.

Stay away from Shatner threads for your own sanity. It's clear that there are some on the forum who haven't and it's driven them stark staring bonkers.

Please note that Joe Offer and I are in complete agreement on the above.

We both consider that there are no reasons or grounds for why any anonymous voulunteer fellow poster should have imposed closure upon the thread in question and we both consider that it should not have been closed. But the fact remains that despite our agreement - this thread was subject to imposed closure.

As the editing comment only suggest that this thread MAY have been closed by inadvertantly by someone - has it been finally established and can it be confirmed - if indeed it was closed by some accident? Or if it was wrongly but intentionally closed by some anonymous volunteer fellow poster and if so what action will be taken to ensure that this is not repeated?

I may be alone in this - but I do find there is considerable irony and humour in the case of a thread entitled (or currently entitled anyway) 'Closing threads' being subject itself to closure and subsequent re-opening and of no one knowing or admitting to why.....

Little Hawk,

sorry I didn't mention you as one other master of this art form. I remember when I first opened a Shatner thread the name Shatner meant nothing to me at all. I then saw your name and smelled what would be coming. I closed the thread immediately and decided I never would want to know who Shatner was. I did never open any Shatner thread yas far as I know and for about 2 years I was successful. But then some people started talking about Shatner in innocuous threads with harmless titles and one time it happened: I realised who Shatner was. I guess I'll never forget that detail but I still don't open Shatner threads.

The following thread (with a TECH prefix has been relegated to the BS and for some reason - has now been closed.

Closing threads

This was the original question asked in that thread.

Is there some technical advantage given to the general effective running of our forum - by the closing of threads?

Does it make the site less technically effective in any way or make it run slower - if all threads are left open for new contributions?


If you wish to know the answer – you will have to click on the link – but you will not be able to post to it. Unless of course you kindly ask our anonymous volunteer fellow posters to re-open it – to enable you to do this.

Susan - your accusation is as absurd as it is groundless. For your judgement that I had 'proved again that I cannot comprehend most U.S. humour' - was made first - was your judgement - not also 'disrepecting U.S./UK cultural differences'?

You have perhaps shown that you have no comprehension of when someone may be 'pulling your leg'. *Smiles*

You may have missed this. It was inserted into an existing post so as not to refresh this thread.

There's really no need to repeat my brown comments, Roger - I put them in brown so people will see them, and I put them in the message they apply to so people can understand what allegation I'm answering without having to read through a dozen of your posts (or, worse yet, without my having to copy-paste your allegations).

BE2, I probably missed it because you may not have repeated it ad nauseum through assuming I didn't see the first, second, or third, etc. postings immediately before the cut and paste for the umpteenth time? You know, I have no retention, so things must be said often in as convoluted, yet questioning terms as possible, is this not true also, for you and the others? For, were it not for such repetitions, would we not all miss the exact points made and their oft-repeated-postings, by which that we may gain such insight and then, know that volunteer fellow posters, one and all, are the scum of the earth and we must not follow by example? Or, is it then to be assumed, as volunteer fellow (no dames allowed!)posters, we are ALL of us, we few, we legion, we many thousands, one and all Scum, damned forever to ride 'neath the streets of Boston to never return, whilst reading endless loops of the same cut and pastes over and over and over and over and over...

LOL, Wolfgang! Brilliant point.

I have tried applying the very same technique, the "act of using repetition as a means to transport humour", with at least some success (Shatner, hamsters, Hillary Clinton blow-up dolls, Chongo Chimp, etc). I agree that Shambles is approaching absolute mastery of this art form, and he is doing it elegantly through one simple framework by refining that one framework into endless variations of itself. Clever.

I attribute Spaw's downfall to the tragic mistake of using farts as the central buttress of his humour. This was a great strategic error, because farts are simply, to put it bluntly, not very funny...unless you're a ten year old.

Some find that sort of thing irritating or tedious. Others find it hysterically funny. Observe the great comedians of history and you will find that they almost all used the same technique...repetition of easily recognizable images and scenarios.

Classic examples of comedy by repetition: Abbot and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Peter Sellers.
