Sick of people posting only on Thursdays
« on: January 23, 2008, 12:52:15 PM »
I don't know why it bothers me, but people who show up thursday mornings, post a bunch of nonsense then dissappear for the rest of the week really bother me!  Why does he do it?  WHY? WHY? WHY?  Perhaps he's in jail and thursday is library day...

Tomorrow's thursday.  It's going ot happen again!  Make him stop!
Many beers....

You didn't overdo it.  It bugs me too, not so much that the topics are old but that what is added is so.... contentless...

Did you mean the poster that just came up today 1:30 and left at 2:10(amsterdam standard gmt+1)  
(oh, it isn't thursday)
Let see tomorrow then. I gues I missed it.

I have posted in old topics sometimes also, atleast not every post that I make is nonsense, is it.

I don't mind old topic posting as long as it actually furthers the conversation.  "I agree with Numsgil" is not a good post when the thread's been dead for 2 years.

What a concidence that it happens to be Thursday morning here while I sit with a mug of coffee wondering what topics you're referring to.  
I haven't noticed more posts in Thursdays though. It's more like several posts per day and then everyone dissapears for a week or two.

It's not you Testlund.   There's a specific poster that only shows up on Thursdays.  Surprised he's not put in  an appearance yet today.

Oh, I know you didn't meant me. I was just wondering who the poster was. Then I see Fulizer going through the forum like a mole on coffein, digging up posts at random.

Who is it, who is it. I wanna know, I wanna know.  


It isn't me, I post at other days too.  (wait someone is posting nonsence on thursdays, and the point that it is only on thursdays confinces me that it isn't me, hmmm)

Who is it, oh who is it.

The next time I am going to post in a old topic it is going to start with 'I disagree with Numsgil'  
But you're right. One line 'I agree posts' are mostly never really useful but they're annoying in old topics, becouse they bump it up without any usefulness.

Hmm, I am really wondering who it is, fuliser is posting mostly at random days too so it isn't him then. He is begining to get a little annoying but also funny  .

Hi. I think it would be mildly ironic if I posted now. . .
So. . .

Tomorrow's Thursday..... again....

The top ten reasons why I might post only on Thursdays...

10) The flying saucer only gets close enough to Earth to make an internet connecton once a week.
9) Thursday is library day at San Quentin Maximum security prison.
8) My horoscope says too.
7) Mom's too busy selling on Ebay the rest of the week.
6) On the fourth day, God invented the internet adn then an hour later, the firewall....
5) Since the accident, it takes the other 6 days to blink out a post using only my left eyelid.
4) No reason other than it freaks EricL out.
3) Thanks to fulizer, I can't get a word in edgewise the rest of the time.
2) Have to wait for visiting day.  The wireless signal doesn't make it through the padded walls.

and the #1 reason why I might post only on Thursdays....

1) Using a computer for more than an hour per week would violate my parole...
Many beers....
