Note to self; don't sit in Kitty's computer chair.

It's wet and may have an uncomfortable protuberance.

Haha, my favorite part about this is that in this thread, we have, "This place is family friendly, we don't need that adult-oriented garbage!"

Yet in the Avatars thread, we have, "Everyone here is a grown-up, avatars are for kids!"

You can be completely pro-adult and for adult topics and discussion, and against porn. In fact, some would argue that porn is quite immature.

Honestly 8 years ago when I started posting on this board, I never imagined that I would be here still chugging along at this time. I guess I feel kinda sad because the place is changing, it no longer has a community feel anymore. The mods have done a great job over the years, but I wonder how long they will stick around because I don't think they are compensated, and honestly volunteering for an individual like Geoff is a lot different than volunteering for a corporation. Especially a corporation that subjects its viewers to the tasteless, annoying ads for that stupid French movie. I know it brings money in to support the "community" but I feel like the community is kinda going by the wayside.

Uhm, since this thread is about a video on national news, I'm not talking about porn. I could give a damn about porn.

I'm talking about someone who posts something SLIGHTLY off-kilter, tells a dirty joke or opens a thread about something which disgusts a select few and it gets locked by the fucking puritan police as being too 'adult-oriented' or NWS.

NWS is stupid, anyway. You're at work.

Fucking work.

I know I never cruise around on the internet on someone else's dime. If you do, you deserve to get fired.

But, anyway.

Why was "Las Vegas - Season 5 07/22/08" in DVD talk forum closed? Was it because only links were posted in the OP, or what? The thread didn't even get started before it was closed.

I don't understand why there is a limit as to how many threads you can have on the main page or why a thread is closed for lack of information. IMO getting the conversation going is the main thing. Everything else will just come in time. Now it seems like there is no conversation happening and no topics being created. The last post in a thread in that forum covers what 4 days? I remember when it was a lot more active.

Well that doesn't make any sense. Why was the Las Vegas thread closed for lack of information when it has the same information as the other threads of his that weren't closed?

Someone on staff I guess doesn't like Las Vegas.

I just created a new thread (I always loved the show), lets see what happens to mine now.

That seems strange considering how many deals to the city are offered on their travel websites... Hmmmm.

I was going to ask the same thing about the Las Vegas thread. It said it was closed due to a lack of info, however it had a link to tvshowsondvd.com that had plenty of info. That's so stupid to close the freakin' thread because of that. Now someone has to make another one.

Why didn't the mod simply make a post in the thread saying that if the OP didn't add more info, THEN he'd close the thread. When you close it so abruptly, nobody has a chance to fix it.

Mods here don't work that way. They close first, debate later.

Sorry, going for a bit of humor obviously. My statement is not always true of course.

The first page of the Feedback forum is looking like an assembly line at a padlock factory.

I'm guessing it had something to do with:

4) No male or female appreciation threads based primarily on pictures of them.
