: You can't help but notice their flooding. I made a quick survey of the first threads in this room, dating from March 31 to March 23. In these, four persons made 120 of the 222 posts. 29 other persons made an average of 3.5 posts each. I do not know how many visitors did not post at all. Doubtless many were dissuaded from posting since they couldn't make head nor tail of the conversations.

They all generally make pretty good sense to me.
What planet are you from?

: This seems to be the private chat room of a small handful. If not, Gee, Red Death(y), Joel Jacobson, bill: explain to the rest of us why your words are somehow more wise, more experienced, and more urgent than everyone else's.

It ain't private. Just jump in. Are you bashful? Have
you no urgencies? No soap box to stand on?

: I enjoy a spirited debate as much as the next guy. I don't enjoy being flooded out. Why should these four, among others, post new threads gratuitously, pushing down previous threads and forcing everyone else to hunt for their replies?

Forcing? This is just like TV. You can change channels,
you know.

: To all flooders: GET A LIFE! Turn off your damned computers, box 'em up, and store 'em in the garage for the summer. Go out for a walk on the beach. Get drunk. Get laid. Whatever. Come back in the fall with some PERSPECTIVE and some self-discipline.

Will you follow it your own advise or can we
expect to here more from you?
