Burnt Hill, thanks for checking back to the OP. While I was amenable to a name change, I now agree with you that we should not alter the thread title, as it purely reflects the OP title.

There was nothing lazy and annoying about it when it was posted.
The title maintains historical context.
Direct your complaint to the author of the article if you wish.

I don't do FB so i cant make the comparison, that's your bias.
We are having a discussion. Not fair to attribute the corporate media bias to any poster of such content. That's a childish tactic.
Groupthink is not your friend.

Which is a lazy and annoying way to do it. This is not Facebook. The threads continue, there is supposed to be a discussion. I would prefer the OP's explicit bias to some corporate media headline that then lives on for years.

I think it would be a good idea for someone to start a thread

Changing Thread Titles - Discuss

maybe we could get the mods to talk to Jeff and he could take the time to add another forum just for discussing thread titles

I agree but that title reflects your bias.
It should be titled "Thread Title Changes - Lets talk about it!".

Yes but dont we need two more forums, one for current event title changes and one for title change discussion?

What I do care about is the incessant complaining, because that is annoying. Please, take issue with the poster via PM, or if that avenue doesn't pan out, ask for moderator intervention, but for the sake of all past, present and future contributors, bite your friggin tongue and control your emotions.

Enough with the screed. Your issue is with board management. Take it up with the managers; write a letter to the owner.



I don't care that you "don't give a damn" -- you weren't asked for your opinion(s).

Remember, YOU were the one to initiate and persist this silly exchange with your wholly erroneous premise.

You made it clear you care not about AD's material, nor do you have any interest in the challenges to his material (and as a result, you are misrepresenting the issues raised). Simply avert your eyes then. Focus on what you want to focus on and steer clear of what you don't care about.

Enough space has been wasted on your roundabout attempts to get to your unsolicited "unblemished opinion" . I've indulged in your meandering far longer than merited. Any further issues you have, take it up with me via PM or express them to a mod.

.

I suggest you pay some more attention to detail; I've made no such comments Re: thread title changes (though I can't disagree with the suggestion).

While i'm correcting your miscue, here's another: quit with the utterly baseless strawman claims ("I not allowed to post any link that is not RT Sputnik"). You'll need to try harder than that. You know, RI.

Your OP can keep its title. The discussion thread that followed, which is not yours, is about the Skripal Affair. It is not about UK junk propaganda from now two months ago about Theresa May "hitting back" or a "spy attack" that in no way has been confirmed as such, although the rushed and thus fabricated claim of it on nothing more than suspicion has been used to push the world further toward the brink. As happens a lot, you occupied something that was going to be big with a corporate media cut-and-paste headline, coincidentally. And now it's 25 pages and a useful archive of a historical event that should continue, but still every time one responds to the latest development in The Skripal Affair the result is to push the same false headline up. You could just acknowledge and respect the huge archive that this board evolved into long ago and start labeling things so that people can recognize what they are. You could also realize this isn't about you and not do one of your usual conniptions in which you start another dozen confusion threads in reaction.

I will not be changing ANY of my thread titles for you now or ever..your suggestions have been filed....our détente in DD lasted longer than I thought it would

I even played along with your meaningless little poll game

I bolded the important part of Jack's quote, and would like to point out that Skripal remains in the title for searching ease. I would suggest anyone with intelligence would quickly understand that it was an original title to an article written at the time. The inaccuracy of the title has significance too. Any rersearcher would readily understand this.

Too much housekeeping can remove context.
Life is often ugly and wrong, a thread title can reflect that.

Yeah, I can actually agree with that, it's good thinking. But the board is really flooded with so much of this kind of thread title. I urge restraint!
