    Or lorem ipsum. Most of us can’t tell the difference.

    now this is getting outrageous. many a poster seem to think that they could post whatever they want, so loong as they preface it or postlude it by KTCRIM, and that’s totally wrong. If it’s unpostable, that one-word formula doesn’t excuse it, and if it is postable (, even commendable) then just write it and allow the post to speak its own merit. How many writing classes must we attend before that fact sinks in: cut the adverbs, don’t use exclamation points, and nothing is, “an amazing story…”?

    In an irrelevant but related aside, which I will post in the spirit of KTCRIM, I hate the phrase, “no offence” for the same reason. If the statement was offensive, why should one not be offended just because you told him/her not to? And if it’s npt offensive. then just leave it out.. I always felt the wosrt insult was when I was told “no offence” about somrthing completely unoffensive, or when someone apoliogizes to me for something I completely couldn’t care about, because it means they think I’m too fragile for whatever it is they said or did.

    No offense, but the fact that saying “no offense” actually makes your words more offensive makes it useful when you want to offend someone.

    GoGoGo: I shall belatedly address your original point, facetious though it may be.

    The hashtag #KTCRIM is not to add any extra importance, interest or support to a post or thread. It’s purpose, at least in my humble opinion, is to let others know that this post serves to add to and improve the general discussion. So, for example, when I began the Reporting Abusers thread, part of the reason I initiated it was, not only due to mmy strong feelings on the matter, but to improve both the quantity and quality of the discourse. That kind of thread leads to halachic, political and moral discussions, all of which lead to lively, interesting threads, where the posts are not bland or all in agreement, such as chewing over news stories or swapping recipies, but contoversial, argumentative (in a good way) and generally spirited. The same can apply to posts that open up a previously dull topic into a new, interesting angle. And to show that this is our intention, those participating in the general movement mark this with a #KTCRIM. Of course, this is not to demean the other threads, but simply to serve the interests of those in agreement with the key aims of the KTCRIM. Comprende?

    No offense.

    GoGoGo – the aim of #KTCRIM is not to complain about others interests, nor to hijack their threads – it is to keep other intellectually challenging threads alive.

    For many of us, intellectually challenging and interesting are two sides of the same coin.

    I concede that a dignified silence may perhaps be a more mature response. But what is apparent is that I’m not alone in my increasingly futile attempts to find a discussion with some of the bite and intelligence I’ve observed in the past, and more importantly, without some of the laughingly incoherent interjections that make the above task so difficult. Case in point, the above post. Frankly, I think a small sigh is the least I’m allowed.

    Kvetch over.

    #1174294

    I thought it had been added to the other thread or I would’ve deleted it. Not because it would bother you but it is certainly out of place.

    You are welcome to kvetch, I just noticed that you seem to show up and complain about the state of things, disappear, and repeat. It gets old. You’re an intelligent guy, get the ball rolling!

    29:

    Fair enough.

    Although I would like to correct one small assumption of yours. I don’t disappear. I observe regularly, but simply find fewer threads that pique my interest. I’m perfectly willing to concede the fault may lie with myself, but my prolonged absences are not for lack of trying.

    And in my shallow defence, my attempts to provoke interesting discussion, both for my own benefit and for the benefit of the significant number of posters who seem to agree with some of my above ‘kvetching’, easily outnumber my occasional kvetches.

    But nonetheless, point taken.

    You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes. AA Milne

    This isn’t a call for interesting topics or discussion. There’s plenty.

    This is, I hope, the official launch of the Amateur Dramatics Ban.

    It seems that many threads, and particularly the most promising, interesting, ones, often turn into an amateur dramatics class. And the reason I specifically say ‘amateur’ dramatics is because that is exactly what they are. Amateur. They are not genuine emotional discussions. It is people claiming offence indiscriminately, at the slightest, or indeed without any, provocation. Anything other than fawning agreement is a slight against one’s personality.

    Generally, each post seems engineered to engender as much drama as possible. It’s all about tension and attention. Unfortunately, to name examples would be to point fingers, and to point fingers would be to create more arguments and useless drama.

    The end result is every discussion is not about the topic but about the interpersonal disagreements of the participants. And frankly, it’s incoherent and tiring. I am aware that in attacking it and bringing it up, I’m guilty of it too. So let’s just please try and keep the amateur dramatics to a minimum. That way, when somebody is actually offensive and mean, it won’t be the boy who cried wolf.

    And if we are on the topic of A A Milne, I’m going to have to post one piece of advice to NeutiquamErro. Much as I share some of your frustrations and opinions, remember this:

    Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
