I thought I was unique. But HERE I find Mr Red and Don(Wysiwyg)T both claiming they have never opened the mother of all threads. Who else?

(I'm keeping my fingers crossed that no-one will unearth some post I contributed to it, oh, a thousand years ago.)

There are many threads I never open but I am aware that I'm missing out on many thoughts, much information, and helter skelter fun whose loss I would regret. The Cat and its people are a remarkable lot. But you gotta draw the line somewhere.

I don't think I've opened the MOAB thread since early days.

I'm afraid it is more likely to be a 200 year synopsis, Gervase.

As I understand it, the thread is a free ranging interchange on a multitude of subjects, and well worth viewing, but I know if I open it I will get sucked in, and I already spend more time on Mudcat than I should.

So, reluctantly, I have resisted the temptation.

One day, when my mobility has deteriorated to the point of my being completely sedentary, I shall open it and read the (by then) half million posts with great relish.

That's `cause they're ALL slow then.

There's a big difference with my cable connection.

The forum is a database of posts. That's why it's searchable. It's not sitting on the server in the form it appears in your web browser. The server has to search and compile the posts according to the thread title fields. The longer the thread (and the older it is) the more time it takes to do this. Add pagination and it increases the time needed. While the server is doing this, it's not doing something else. That's why I say it adds to the slowdown around here at times.

Never deliberately, but I think I once looked at one message by mistake. I was searching for lyrics and something came up in the search results that looked like it might be the lyrics I wanted, but it wasn't. I can't remember what it was, but it didn't make any sense to me.

I do a lot of searching for lyrics, song titles, artists' names, etc., and it's amazing that this only happened once. I guess they never discuss music in that thread.

We discuss music and literature and fine poetry and history and politics and computer stuff and family stuff and made-up stuff and there are a fascinating number of alter-egos who turn up regularly. "BS" doesn't mean it is nonsense, it does mean shooting the breeze with imagination and it does mean occasionally running off someone who decides they want to set the rules for us or dictate what we should talk about. Political Correctness is not in the MOAB charter, for example. It means having to deal with interlopers who have no interest except to score certain significant numbers. As it happens, Little Hawk was channeling for Willam Shatner when number 10,000 came around, because my DSL hesitated or I'd have had it.

Think "streams of consciousness" and compare MOAB with some of the fine contributions to English language literature and you'll have an idea of what the Mother of All BS threads is about. It is difficult to read from the beginning because after "The Crash" it became scrambled.

I have dibs on 20,000, by the way.

You are such a useless toad, Martin. I bet you think people on the MOAB are going to be just devastated by the fact that you haven't opened it. To the contrary, they consider it blessed relief. Your absence makes the heart grow fonder. The longer you are not around, the better it gets. This may be why the MOAB is such a lengthy thread and goes on being so popular with its adherents.

It is true. Joe Offer, who may or may not be khandu (who, supposedly, "created" the thread), did add a comment to the opening post, giving the thread its Official Mudcat Cafe Blessing!

That alone makes the thread worthy of anyone's time to open it!

The MOAB started as a joke. For awhile it was quite funny. Then it became a daily addiction for a group of about 10 people. I can understand that. I'm addicted to this forum in a general sense. It can easily happen. You keep doing something mainly because you are accustomed to doing it. It's a mental reflex action. Running jokes are jokes that go on forever and ever....like the repetitive stuff they had on various TV shows over the years. (Example: Laugh-In was based on a whole series of running jokes. They just kept doing the same jokes again and again. People found it hilarious...if they liked the show.)

The MOAB is 2 things: a running joke...and a private club for those who have become addicted to that running joke.

OK, so now I took the bait and opened the damn thread, and I see no such comment. But khandu has suckered me in, and I can no longer claim that I haven't opened the thread.

Another brainstorm of mine, inspired by Tweed, Spaw, Carol the Sailor and their ilk.

We can save time which we spend searching through all the BS threads very easily. Henceforth, post all BS here in this thread. Soon there will be only one BS thread. We won't have to look for particular threads as this will be the only one and it will contain all the BS we have to offer.

My Gawd!! Why has this not been thought of earlier? It is so obvious!

I swear, sometimes I even amaze myself!

Once again, for those of you who are slow in understanding...hear me, Tweed! Post all BS in this thread from now on!

Pene Azul and Joe Offer will thank me for making their job so much easier! My fellow 'Catters will also thank me when they realize the time my idea will save them! Maybe this will finally get me the coveted "Time/Life Man of the Year"!!

I swear, sometimes I even blow my own mind!!

King khandu

I strongly object to being referred to as "THAT thread"! How would you like it if I referred to you as "THAT human"?

My name is "The Mother of All BS Threads", or "MOAB" for short.

Watch it, Buster!

Whoa! This thing's getting outta hand.
Now THAT thread is posting to other threads.
We'd better kill it before we all get banished to the cornfield one by one.

(sung with guitar accompaniment and a cowboy twang)

"There is ah thread they caall the MOAB,
A beast so great an' pale,
It mite be relayted tuh Moby Dick,
Cause it shore is a whale!

Ah've been in bars where whiskey flowed,
An' men sang 'Eskimo Nell',
And rough saloons and frontier dives,
But MOAB looks wuss than hell.

Ah've heard of threads upon mah coat,
Ah've picked them frum mah shoe,
Ah've follered the 'conversayshun's thread',
But now Ah think Ah'm through...

Oh mawthers, tell yore children,
To stay away frum there!
It wuz that thread that did me in,
An' gave me snow-white hair..."
