    So Chad posts a complaint thread about your continual racism being allowed and because you can't stand continually being reminded of it, you try and look for petty revenge? Dear oh dear. :jayzus:

    I would personally prefer less of them. Maybe a consolidated thread. But I think the idea that they are equatable to years of racism and bigotry is really grasping for straws. They are all different events.

    Because I am reasonable, I will voluntarily limit myself to only posting 100 threads per day or less, regardless of the uniqueness of the subject matter.

    It was just it would be easier to find the threads I want without dozens of throw away one post threads all on the same topic. It would have made the forums cleaner and subject matters easier to find.

    Which if course is why you waited until the very moment the poster in question was calling out your racism to register a complaint about too many threads. :lol:

    Can you please ever point out a single example where I, an atheist, sent anyone thoughts and prayers? Try harder not very good administrator who unjustifiable banned me because he was too lazy to actually bother with collecting facts?

    I guess that is too much effort though.

    So, how do you figure following the pull of your temper has worked out for you in life, Dinner?
    That path bringing you golden treasure, and marble mansions?

    Limiting each member to a couple of threads per day would not be unreasonable or overly restrictive.

    That’s what Trek BBS did because of Enterpriser. A lot of things were done to limit his prolific posting, but they ended up confining the other members, too. I do not recommend it.

    Fine, fine, I'll reword it. That sound you just heard was the joke flying overhead.

    Happy? :jayzus:

    Actually, I would say it is working out quit well. I have a good job which I like, I like where I live, I have good friends, I am surrounded by family, I have a woman I love and who loves me... I would say it is working out well for me, much better than others, like, say, you.

    No, limiting you to a few new threads per day though would be both justifiable and good.
