TOAT - Thread of All Time
 
So the Landlords on my case about my cleanliness! thread got us talking about doing a thread of all time since the Landlord thread is destined to go down through the ages. I'd like to do a top 10 and vote on it, but I don't know how to even whittle it down to 10 there were so many memorable threads throughout the history of the forums here. So I know what the end result should look like, but I'm not sure how to get there. Obviously start nominating threads, but we need a process to get down to the final result. Maybe the prize could be a bronzed toad or something.

Would the 9/11 thread be eligible even though it's archived?

I never got started reading the Landlord thread, I wouldn't even know where to start in reading through it. I think any one of the Ghostbusters (2016) threads should be considered.

I wasn't here for it, but I have seen it get referenced on the anniversary dates. Its kind of hard to read.

I believe so. I know I read it after it was archived.

I liked this thread, it was just laugh out loud funny.

I nominate the Honeyclam saga. There were many parts, the original thread was this:

Should This Girl Leave Her Boyfriend?

These were considered the best threads, but that more than ten years ago.

The DeltaSigChi and TopBunk threads are pure gold and can be found at the link (Thanks d2cheer).

But my personal favorite will always be the "So Refreshing" thread:

Let me rephrase that, I never made a post in it so I can't make any judgement on it being best thread of all time.

My votes are for Eddie Money’s marital problems (long overdue for a Where Are They Now?) and Alan’s media hoarding.

I feel like we've done this before. I recall mentioning the Crayon Thread, and the Pig Mask Traveling thread. And I recall someone bringing up Art's man-on-man in straight pron thread also.

Edit, it wasn't exactly the TOAT, but had similar notables:
https://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk...weirdness.html


Some good ones mentioned from Nick:
Master dogs.
Dumpster diving for DVD cases.
Topbunk not getting his fair share of pizza.
Picking up a tranny at a bus stop and getting into a doomed relationship.
Boron cowpunch clothing.
Using the Other Forum to get out the word that VMS alarm company was a scam.

And the Kittydreamer chair

Would it still count if it was in the Adult Forum?

A couple of my all time favorites are:

The guy who was furious that Target wouldn’t let him get a free slurpee refill days after he originally bought it. That was in the Store forum so it didn’t get nearly the attention that an Otter thread would.

And the guy who’s wife raided the Wal-mart lost and found and was expecting Otter to cyber high five him. The opposite reaction from forum members made the thread great.

I tried searching and couldn’t find either thread. I also don’t remember what the thread titles were, exactly.



And I don’t think it was it’s own thread, but the guy who insisted his kid’s knew that their Christmas gifts were bought by him because he didn’t want Santa Clause to get undue credit is also be a favorite of mine. :lol:

VMS alarms and of course... post your batteries!

And Top Bunk is the most overrated thread in DVDTalk history. There I said it.

Dating advice needed (1st date in 4 1/2 years!)

From trannies, to shadow dick, to steam works. The thread that paved the way for others ;)
