    At the top right of every post is an "Ignore Thread" link.

    Use it.

    This is actually the perfect time to advocate not posting to the cesspool...i.e. politics. If you want to avoid Carl, Shizz and Pal, keep the OT to the bb board. Much more rational over here.

    @August_West I liked you post but want to be clear, it was the reference to the part about you being an idiot.

    In general, I don't really care what other people post. Bring on the nonsense.

    If you find a book about pizza in the basketball section of the library, it's a problem. If you find a post about pizza on the basketball board, it's okay.

    Why?

    The Dewey Decimal System.

    We do not have a Dewey Decimal System for message boards and as such, we must endure some amount of chaos. If Melvil Dewey hadn't gone ahead and died 150 years ago, he might have been able to fix things, but he's gone and that's that.

    This thread is being taken over, b/c its premise was essentially promoting censorship. We, as Americans (and yes, I'm a decent chunk - maybe an arm, not a leg - Native) - don't want to be told how to think or act. BTW, if the founding fathers saw what they see now, you think they wouldn't revolt? - I went too far, but, point stands. Read or don't. That's it.

    A couple of random thoughts:

    1. There has never been a time or a place or a circumstance that has compelled me to actively talk about food. I mean, it's *ing food. You eat it and you like it or you don't, and there's not much to it. I care less about your food preferences than I do your fantasy football team and that's saying a lot. Yeah @August_West this is personal.

    2. To be serious for a second, there is probably room between shutting down the OT topics completely and cutting back on, I don't know, to pick a completely hypothetical example, threads about unclogging your ears. True story: I had some problems with clogged ears about a month ago and I never, even for a fraction of a second, thought about posting it to the boneyard. I'm not saying this makes me a better person than @superjohn but it might.

    Mission accomplished, champs.

    Personally, I cannot imagine a world in which I didn't enjoy food.
