So just make the hot topic list longer.
When I moved the Lounge into the forums, the change was not met with great excitement, to say the least. A few years later, when I asked whether they'd prefer to stay where they are or get moved within the new system, they voted quite overwhelmingly to stay put.
Not at all. All one has to do is click on the poster's handle. For example, click on BVW... and you find he has 674 lifetime comments, and nearly 36,000 forum posts.
That's lazy. At that point you're just one more click away from the lounge.
So all this is about keeping up appearances to impress clickers-through?
So there's going to be an "OT: Pottery"? Where is the pottery discussion going to go?
BTW, I love the Longthreaders vs Loungistas rivalry. I'm left wondering is it more reminiscent of the Roundheads vs the Cavaliers, or the Hatfields vs the McCoys?
The other group said, "Good riddance. Now there won't be a mess."
I will not be satisfied until History Channel runs a miniseries about this.
Except they weren't really making a mess in front of the guests.
They lack the wherewithal to recognize their postings may not be wanted on the mainland.
I did the West Side Story riff four pages ago you numbskulls.
Except for the pesky evidence which shows that the threads typically went hundreds or thousands of posts.
Now if the thread grows to 500 comments in a day and keeps going, I don't think it's unreasonable to move it out of the default Hot Topics while allowing it to appear for people who opt-in to continue seeing such off-topic stuff in their Hot Topics.
Sodom vs Gomorrah.
And now those of us who were in the dark about the lounge have seen why.
Oops, sorry. I must have you on either "Ignore" or "Plagiarize."
My bad. But in threads with 1300+ posts, you don't really expect the average primate to read all of them, do you?
I would expect people to have everyone but me on ignore.
Of course not. I expect you to CTRL-F through searching for "Hutcheson."
Joey, are you aware
This thread makes me wish I hung out in the lounge more often.
I mean, the snark-to-signal ratio is off the charts.
You used to. You asked Harvey to whip you into shape, and then you vanished.

I heard there were some escaped loungers... Have they all been herded back into their little District 9 yet or are we still on alert?
