When did DU jump the shark?
Jeez, it has REALLY been boring around here lately. What's with all these copy cat threads, and all these cat threads (I like cats as much as the next guy, but sheesh....). I'm not helping, granted, but I expect more out of you guys. Can we have a little more creativity around here.

Pleeeaaase.

1. Ah, so it's not just me!
I thought I was feeling overly bitter and vindictive about recent events in thos forum, but perhaps not. It really *is* lame around DU these days!

2. When it moved from analog to a digital "internet" forum
sure ruined the fun for me. Lost a lot of its charm when that happaned, and became more anonymous and, of course, made it avialble to a much wider audience who soon ruined the small family atmosphere of DU.

Moving to the Internet was a huge mistake, and so cliche.

or become a Mod and lock the dupe threads.

You could also roast a few cats. Fewer cats, fewer cat threads. Cats are food ya know.

7. If you only realized how much your reply....
makes me want to kill myself.

I started a joke that started the whole world crying
Oh if I'd only seen that the joke was on me

Till I finally died and started the whole world living
(sniffle, sniffle)

5. More creativity, you say?
How about one more "Best (song/singer/band/drummer/guitar player/single/album) of all time" thread.

Just one more.

That's really all we need.
