Date: 15 Nov 05 - 11:43 AM

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.)

Never. Ever. And should the slightest temptation arise, I do a search for "censorship on Mudcat" and remind myself how much bandwidth is already wasted.
Anyway, what's it about? How about a 200-word synopsis, someone?

I dont believe I've ever opened it. But like Fionn, it may that some aeons ago, after coming back from the pub, I just have given them the benefit of my wit and wisdom. But is there a way of searching: "greg stephens"+"mother of all threads" in google, or something like that?

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.

Don T.

Not true, MMario. The very long threads DO take a lot longer to open, not matter how you open them. And basically none of them are worth the wait.

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.

I have never been there and never shall. However, I must tell ye all that Joe Offer officially sanctioned the MOAB thread in the opening post of that thread!!!

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!

Let me aslo testify that Tweed speaks great truth when he says he has not opened the thread!
