    That would be the latest Walking Dead thread. It was an interesting discussion until the spoiler thing came up, now it's all about that, a completely different discussion altogether.

    To hell with rules about spoilers, what this forum needs desperately are rules about inconsiderate babblers ruining threads with off-topic nonsense that goes on and on and on... Or maybe there are such rules and no one follows them or they're not enforced. Folks sure won't follow them if they aren't enforced because, just like that old joke, no one on the internet can resist commenting when someone else is WRONG.

    I'm a few episodes behind on TWD so I haven't read the thread in question yet. If someone who has a reply early in that thread would be so kind to go back and edit their comment to add a warning about the spoiler entry it would be most appreciated.

    Threads change, topics wander.

    'Tis the nature of the beast.

    You can try to push them back on topic, sometimes it works.

    Now, I for one thought Carol's new hair do was uber sexy.

    A graph showing the number of active posters grouped by join date or year would be pretty cool. :up: Or maybe how many people have joined per year since TCF started? Is the new member join rate increasing or decreasing?

    While we're discussing thread derailment, How to Get Away With Murder always ends up with someone bitching about gay sex.

    Are they still having those scenes in each episode? I gave up on that show after two episodes. I wanted to like it, but couldn't take it (unlike the gay guys). ;)

    I think the Big Bang Bickering threads (and now Walking Dead and How to Get Away With Murder) are the most fun threads here.
    It's funny to see what sorts of inanities wind people up.
    It's just TV.

    The spoiler has been hidden since a few minutes after it was posted.

    Mostly the babbling starts when the thread would have been dead anyway. No harm done.

    Last year an adventuring Cagliostro tried to steer a thread to a book! So delicate was his naiveté he was oblivious to the destruction caused and the evil unleashed. Kinda got the idea that a participation trophy might pop up from the roiling Millennial soup.

    GRR!!
