I dig chicks named Anna
I really hate to do this, but:
Look, I am usually not one to join a conversation about netiquette. I thinks
it pedantic; but in this case I'll make an exception.
I subscribe to this mailing list for one reason: Humor. Granted, I joined
it beccause I was interested in Groo, but I STAYED because I was (and still
am) interested in the Groop. You guys really give me a belly laugh (I've got
the belly for it) at least once a week. Sometimes twice, if I'm naughty. It
gets me down when the Groop becomes quiet. And the thing that usually brings
out the best in a Grooper is a good, long-since-should-have-died running gag.
That means someone says something mildly ridiculous (Erin), and someone else
responds, and someone else responds to that, ad hilarium. It's a chain
reaction. And it only gets bigger and funnier. The longer it goes, the more
clever and more ridiculous the endless string of one-up-respondances become.
I, for one, am TOTALLY, ABSOLUTELY, and UNEQUIVOCALLY for off-topic posts.
If we only did on-topic posts, this list would be DEAD. I also understand
that no one is saying there shouldn't be off-topic posts, but that perhaps,
if we send an off-topic post, we should mark it as such. I say, given the
ratio of off- to on-topic posts on this list, we should mark ON-TOPIC posts
as such (It just logically makes more sense). Thus, I submit, the subject
line for all posts which are ON-topic, must, now and forever, contain the
And further, to those who can't tell directly from the subject whether a post
is on or off topic: GO SCRATCH. For an example, check out my subject. If
you can't figure out that this post is off-topic, then you truly deserve the
title of Grooper. A similar argument goes for replies to off-topic posts.
If a post named "your boat" is off topic, then clearly so will be "Re: your
boat", and "Re: Re: your boat", and "Re: Re: Re: your boat". Get it?
All right then.
