Status Updates

Recommended Posts

If one does not like the SU's then why is one reading them?

Why not start your own thread if it is so bothersome.

Not sure why you respond to my posts now. You have come out publicly and refused to acknowledge them. Why now?

Um, what does it matter?

I don't read every single post here.

Sometimes other people respond in ways so I don't need to, or in ways that the thread moves in a direction so there is no point.

The real question here, however, is why can't you answer the questions?

That is, why can you not focus on the substance of the matter?

The status updates are like the tiny margin cartoons in MAD Magazine (for those old enough to remember). These are secondary sidebars between members that reward brevity and clever retort. Long posts as seen in topic areas are not well suited to this format. IIRC, status updates were not always enabled. At first, I ignored them as nonsense, but now they are great fun!

My late brother and I both enjoyed MAD. One of our favourites.

I agree with WCR on the SU topic. If your gonna throw out a political comment, why not just step into the ring and have the thought be challenged. Shady and Dialamha currently have SU's that should be arguable topics in the forum.

I do have an issue with the status updates. Many of the status updates have over 15 responses. Why don't the originators of these SU start a thread?

Most folks prefer things that way. We do not see that as a problem nor as a disruption of the forum.

Heck, sometimes I want to jump into them too!

You might be onto an idea for a forum improvement.
