I'm interested in the long and exalted history of this thread. How did Chas_M (the forefather) get such an important and interesting thread named after him?

Chas_m started the thread with a message that said "Duplicate: Moderator please remove this thread". It kind of took a life of it's own, with no purpose or point, but maybe just to stroke Chas_m's ego and stack his message count.

As for the historical importance of this thread - think of it in the same light as the importance of getting spam in your email...

It has an extremely archetypal feel to it. :>)
I was actually being ironic.....

Hey! The first rule about the chas_m thread is [deleted by moderator].

It would be pretty cool to have a [deleted by moderator] thread. Just like I may have an opinion [deleted by moderator], or some bad spelling [deleted by moderator], or spam [deleted by moderator], or that jpeg was [deleted by moderator] because it was [deleted by moderator]...

Just for the record, I've had little to do with this thread, and my ego doesn't require any further stroking beyond what my wife provides.

Also for the record, I prefer peanut butter to peanuts. I wish someone would make peanut-free peanut brittle.

That has to be the most stupid thing ever captured on video tape. I mean, sure, the dude fell on his tender places - but what was the point of the stunt in the first place? If this had killed or maimed him, it would definitely be something for the Darwin Awards.
