I can smell the pheromones from here.... Good to see the mayor exert some executive privileges - especially as some of the participants seemed battered from exhaustion (or whatever, next...).
That was a remarkable burst of activity - shame that it wasn't so constructive (a trend of many mega-threads?). Apart from Dr. Gs incredible appetite and ability to remember what was said 12 pages before, most of us seem to lose track after a page or two (well, OK, me then).
Talking of whatever, anyone heard a rather painful song by Liam Lynch called United States of Whatever. The song doesn't do much for me but the title is topical.
Seems like there's a trend of thread reproduction, topics spawning topics, mating with other topics, topics discovering they are not the topic they thought they were when they were first posted, basketweaves of threads bending with the breeze, threads perpendicular to all the other threads due to posters following each other around from thread to thread. You know, this is starting to turn into some kind of web or something ...
