Boy Teh Lounge really sucks lately.
I've been here a while and I've never seen it this bad.
The same threads hang on the first page for days on end,
the weekends are somehow more boring than the weekdays!

There are no more lounge specific memes being spread, no
inside jokes to feel smug about or hurt by.

It's a real snooze these days.

If this is what it's like without the trolls I say bring back the trolls.

(I would say IBTL but nobody reads my threads so I doubt it will get locked...)

:)

1. I havent been to the lounge for a long time
I would be willing to act like a real asshole and get everyone worked up if you'd like.
Just give the word, and I'll take one for the team. :evilgrin:

Weird--I was just thinking of that line the other day! (Although I would spell it "Tay inna ween"!)

So what do I win? :D

3. Like most things in life, the pendulum swings both ways.
It got a little over the top for a while, and the counterbalance has us in a bit of a funk. Hot weather and people on vacation probably has a hand in it too.

7. I hope that it's just an August thing but damn.
I've thought about moving on and hanging out with all the kids on 4chan. Sure they are all 15 year old boys and terrible company but they do know how to keep a forum moving...

8. Don't sweat it. They are usually DOA, your reply cannot alter that verdict.

9. It's not just the lounge, it's the same in GDP and it has been going
on for a while.

DU has definitely lost quite a few members who added spark to discussions. Eventually we will all agree about everything.

15. I'd suggest christians
but they do a pretty good job of that themselves, kind of like self-cleaning ovens.

The current fashion trend on DU seems to be mocking anyone who questions the bush administration's story of what happened on 9/11/01.

20. Locking.
Please do not start new threads that are continuations of old Lounge wars.
