ADD A WORD!  >:(

seriously, i keep getting tempted to post something in there but then i know i will NEVER EVER get it out of my unreads.

Too late for me; I can't find my one addition to it and now it pops up every time.

The worst threads, by far, are OPC and The Rules. Jsia.

you need to provide explanation.  i should put that in the title actually...

They - OPC & The Rules - are very *sorority*.

Nothing objectively wrong with sorority/fraternity. Some people like that sort of thing, and it seems v. lame to others. I suppose that I'm one of the others, and it doesn't work for me.

add a word. a thread that's positively useless, but everyone continues to add to it.

those worship threads tend to get old. a lot of, as tra said, GAK. i enjoy a little playful mocking and insulting occassionally, so all the love just makes me feel funny on the insides.

Definitely Add-A-Word, because I was dumb enough to post to it one time, and now it WON'T GET THE HELL OFF MY UNREAD REPLIES!

It's exclusive for a reason.  If we didn't make it so exclusive, it would deteriorate into the same GAKing, mutual-masturbation crap that passes for threads on this particular Off-Topic board.

It already flirts with such inanity, but it seems we have preserved a modicum of sanity.  At the expense of our own vanity.

Hmmmm...I'm getting the impression redemption is not a fan of mine, considering she hates the thread I started and hates the thread I post in most whenever I am there....

Oh, no - not at all. I think that you're quite spirited and quite funny, actually - two qualities that I like and admire.

Yeah, but that's not the reason you listed for hating the OPC.  I do appreciate the sentiment, though.   :D

As for me, I have an infinite amount of gut-wrenching hatred for many threads, but the one that most clearly stands out for me is the Georgia thread.  I also dislike Ze Lair and every single GAKing fanclub thread, even the one I started to make veg feel better on a really bad day.

Name a thread you hate.

We should accept that certain people want to type certain things and that's ok. We aren't forced to click on them or interact with those threads at all. If one of us has hate...

We All Have Hate.

The problem is that the board gets inundated with bad threads.  Just as we have the choice not to click on threads, we also have the choice to hate threads in which we've posted. 

And this, I'd say, is the problem, since most of us don't care as long as a thread doesn't pop up in our unreads.

When a thread consists of more than 80% "you're awesome, no, you're bubbly wubbly, no YOU are, no YOU are," it's just plain f-ing annoying.  I didn't say people can't do it.  I just said I hate it.

Oh, wait, I did say people can't do it.  But that's in my own thread, the OPC.

Of course.  But people have to deal with minor annoyances all the time, which, I would say, a line in your unreads would be, considering the internet age's ability to filter.  Skimming past a thread does not indicate interaction.  If I, for example, let every minor annoyance I encounter become something I actually pay attention to I would have already pulled out all of my hair today. 

You do realize the irony of your posts in a thread (started by someone thoroughly entitled to do so) entitled "Name a thread you hate", right?

Bluewarrior's thread. Although, it is entertaining.

Also, the complete thread over on the on-topic side. I never check it anymore, but it still keeps popping up, every day.

By the way, I know this is really no0b of me (sorry Tra, sorry), but what the heck is GAK?

PM if you don't want to give it away to the lurkers--I know we want to preserve our dork--*cough, cough*--I mean, coolness.

Yes. Oh, I hate myself for participating, but I really (try to) do it out of appreciation for posters who I respect and admire. I'd never start one of those threads, mostly because I would feel really awkward about picking who gets to be involved.

the crush thread, at least, does not tabulate totals and so it's not quite as much of a junior high popularity contest.  also, i hope you don't put my "whose compliments mean the most" thread in this category.  that was a genuine effort on my part to try to get people to think about certain things.

No, I understand and appreciate that thread, for the same reasons I hate the threads I named.  ;)

Oh, I forgot to explain.  If you don't like a thread, don't click on it.  If you think you are so f-ing important that threads you don't like should be banished into purgitory, go @#!* yourself. 

Also, the OPC was mentioned.  The best thing about the OPC for me is it is a single thread that people post in while I am on LSD.  It is not *sorority* or SORORITY or "sorority."  If people posted in the Lair for example, when others woke up and logged on, they would have 15 or 20 pages to skim through to find who is actually still there.  If you are here in the middle of the night and want to ask a question and get a quick response, the OPC is perfect.  While J and others might talk about rules, they are just f-ing around and if you read the whole thread (I think I have) you would no that.  Last I heard, nobody can stop you from posting wherever the @#!* you want.  I am the last person to get into that GAKing (proved by my lack of votes in any of those threads) and I started that thread. (not that I care about GAKers, what's there to care about?)
