Well, I've been a part of a fair amount of so-called "epic-threads", and I've even called them such.

Nearly everyone has had that experience: You stumble upon on thread with a funny or curious name, you open it, and before you know it, you've read something absurd. Or maybe not even that! Maybe someone in the thread other than the OP/TS said something awesome, or posted a great picture.

Anyway, the thread gains a couple dozen posts in a few minutes (or, in the case of mike.h's, a thousand in four hours!), and everyone who comes in has a good time.


But here's my realization: every thread, no matter how kick-ass awesome it is, has the assholes that just quick reply on the first page, replying in a fashion they see as relevant, and is, but only to the first page! Then, those who either take the time to read a whole thread or have been following it previously have to deal with their irrelevant comments that ruin the hilarity.


I say they should be taken out back and shot. Opinions?

I don't believe so, but you said you're not the threadkiller so I decided to cause a commotion.

You've been thinking too hard, man.

Can I offer you a spliff to take your mind off of these heavy things?

Huh? Oh, I wasn't thinking hard about this or anything, it's just been an observation of whatever cool threads I've been in over my residence in the Pit.

Yeah, that really grinds my gears.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

It actually happens in pretty much every thread in the pit. You only disagree with them when the thread becomes "epic."

This is true...like in the "ever been caught masturbating, having sex, or getting your carrot skinned?" thread, when on almost every page, somebody quotes the post where the guy jizzed on his cat saying "OMFG you made my day!!!"

yes definitely they should be shot, like the people who replied to the mike h. thread after the 100 page mark with an answer to the original post.
#19
In all fairness, how would a thread start without these first page comments? Someone has to say something.
#22
[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']Link to that mike.h thread you seem so enthusiastic about?
I searched for it, and it's been deleted (or at least it didn't show up in any of the searches) it was epic though

was this post sufficient in substance, TS?



Damn right it is. It seems substance is irrelevant on page 1, anyway, and +1 samick.

Awww man. I am sorely disappointed. I was seeking truth, no matter how sad, in your thread and only found the ramblings of an angry man.
Therfore this thread is now all about the awesomeness of hummingbirds.
