2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

It is a little early to start this thread since it's only September, but the Celebrity photo hacking thread and the Nickdawgy bad house guest thread got me thinking about this year's best threads. I call on the power of other to nominate the best threads of 2014. We will review them together and based on community feedback/buzz/argument/banter we'll have a poll thread in December to vote on this very important subject matter.

*edit - I think we need at least one person to second the suggestion if we're going to add it to the list below.

Candidates (in no particular order):

1) The Fappening (2014, Shyamalan) S: Lawrence, Upton, 4Chan, Reddit
2) Nickdawgy's Houseguest....Taking Advantage Of Him And The Wife?...Possible threesome?
3) Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!
4) Friends and favors... where do you draw the line?
5) Who read "The Game" about pickup artists...
6) My First Run-in With the Law Sorta - WWYD?
7) Depression
8) User Rob V is insulting my parents......

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

The Alan Smithee "Landlord getting on my case" thread is a prime contender.

Celebrity photo hacking thread was definitely at the top. It went so many directions and even got posters/members to come out of the woodwork who haven't been seen in forever.

Master dogs. Was that in 2013 or 2014? I don't remember.

Agreed, added to the list. Some of the best threads are when the OP comes to other looking for validation of their life choices and gets a healthy dose of "tough love"/smackdown.

Do you have a link? There were some insane Gay Marriage threads that got horribly side tracked. I would think that the thread should be started in 2014, but if it was late in 2013, we could probably make an exception.

*edit, nevermind. Master Dogs came out in July of 2013 and it's all about a banned member, so probably not a good idea.

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

I was going to nominate "If you want to be an attractive guy in the USA, is being White very important?" but realized it was from last year.
With the banning of certain members, the choices have become limited.

Smithee's thread gets my vote. The nude celeb hack one would've been fine if it was cut in half.

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

I'm throwing this one out there. Pretty sure it wouldn't win, but maybe a consideration. Thoughts?

Who read "The Game" about pickup artists...

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

Smithee's Landlord thread is my vote by far at this point.

The Fappening thread turned lame and was just a few days whole internet thing, not just DVDTalk.

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

Alan Smithee and Nickdawgy should share the Oscar. And I am looking for the correct answer to this.

Also have a soft spot for This one about drawing the line on favors

Especially if it's the one where the OP didn't expect 7 pages of ridicule.

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

Not too many lulz in the hacking thread, so it's a toss up with landlord one and the Nick's houseguest. But I think the edge might have to go to the landlord one since, besides having some great laughs, it also has some solid advise for curbing a collector's mentality, which many of us here have.

I like it. Seconded. Adding it to the list in the OP.

Re: 2014 Thread of the Year Nominations

I know it's midterm elections, but I think Alan Smithee is lobbying.

I think it's probably in the bag anyway, unless we get a doozy between now and December.

It shouldn't take you that long. You already have the vacuum cleaner out and ready to go!

You are passionate about your interests, that's for sure! The 'watch your Blu-rays' put down struck me as funny, considering your user name!
