what if we had just one thread where (lets just take andev and ian, or glen and phillip, for examples) could go and call each other whatever they need to instead of completely sidetracking otherwise interesting and worthwhile conversations

I would rather suggest two threads:
1) a flame thread for the trolls.
2) a troll thread for the flamers

And NO THREAD for NASCAR :arg

Even the lowly art of throwing horse manure at each other should have a certain low point beyond which no one should sink.

Great idea!

However, are the trolls and flamers self aware to the point they know they are trolls and flamers?

A google brings up

Flaming, also known as bashing, is hostile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hostile) and insulting (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulting) interaction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interaction) between Internet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet) users, often involving the use of profanity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profanity).

Flame trolling
Flame trolling is the posting of a provocative or offensive message (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message), known as "flamebait",[14] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_(Internet)#cite_note-14) to a public Internet discussion group, such as a forum, newsgroup or mailing list, with the intent of provoking an angry response (a "flame") or argument over a topic the poster often has no real interest in.[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_(Internet)#cite_note-15) While flaming can occur as a result of legitimate debates or grievances, flame trolling implies the intentional posting of inflammatory, grossly offensive or menacing rhetoric or images for the fun of it in order to cause others harm.[16] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_(Internet)#cite_note-16)

If America was as great a nation as you think it is, it's population would be capable of speaking, reading and writing English..

Reminds me of this

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.

Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, “Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, “Maybe it’s because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.”

You could have heard a pin drop.

You could have heard a pin drop (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2728241/posts)


JFK’s Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60′s when Charles de Gaulle decided to pull out of NATO. De Gaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded, “Does that include those who are buried here?”

DeGaulle did not respond.

You could have heard a pin drop.

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of ‘empire building’ by George Bush.

He answered by saying, “Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.”

You could have heard a pin drop.


***

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, “Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?”

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: “Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?”

You could have heard a pin drop.

And finally…

Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.


“Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

The American said, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”

“Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports upon arrival in France!”

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ”Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to.”


You could have heard a pin drop.

Solution below.


I wish to inform my fellow Forumites that as of September 1, posts to The Bilge will no longer be reflected in your official post count. Instead, they will be listed on a second line located below your non-bilge posts.

Using these two post counts (Bilge vs. Non-Bilge), your ratio of posts will then be compared on a quarterly basis.

Accordingly:


A ratio of 1 bilge post to 10+ non-bilge posts will earn a "Traditional Lapstrake" badge.
Those with ratios of 10+ bilge posts to 1 non-bilge post, you will earn an "I NEED TO GO OUTSIDE FOR A WHILE" badge.
Ratios anywhere between "Traditional Lapstrake" and "I NEED TO GO OUTSIDE FOR A WHILE" badges will receive the "Plywood Approximation" badge.
People with ratios of 1000+ bilge posts to 1 non-bilge posts would get a free subscription of the critically acclaimed self-help magazine "Going Bonkers."


Comments are not currently being solicited.

Thank you.

Actually, bobbys is biologically a sound and bonafide Homo sapiens sapiens!
Culturally and intellectually, however, he represents the missing link between rats and apes!
It's possible that if I continue to work with bobbys, he may eventually learn to capitalize words, use punctuation, craft complete sentences and paragraphs, and even crawl out of that dark dismal cave he hides in.;)
