Default when you see a long multi-page thread...

...what is your first assumption as to what it is about?

disclaimer: this poll is intended to be funny. i'm not trying to start controversy or claim that any of the above topics are not real issues. it's just funny to me because MOST super-long threads tend to be about one of the above topics.

I said race, but there is a certain formula for all debates on this board (particularly race though) which brings us to the multi-page threads. It is always the same cries of ignorance on both sides, which always leads to the predictable personal attacks on the opposing side's grammar, knowledge of world history, and personal experiences.

Of course there have been many threads that seemed so innocent that have turned awry, i.e. shower curtains, PT Cruisers, and hoo-ha washing.

One of the top 3, usually. But more often, RACE.

Race then religion. Luckily there is always at least one expert to tell me why and how I am completely and utterly wrong in each category.

I don't think it will stay funny and non-controversial for long...

but why shouldn't it? can anyone on here disagree with the fact that many (i won't say most for fear of being accused of generalizing) multi-page threads on here are about one of the above topics?

It could really be about anything. And can start out about one thing and end up being about another.

Uncrustables, hose, baby owls, I don't think it can be classified.

SO TRUE!!

I think it does have more to do with the "formula" than it does the topic.

I've actually started to ignore a lot of the multi page threads. They tend to be redundant.

I've never read through the EZ Cheeze thread, but I've often been curious about how a thread about a processed, canned cheese product could be controversial. That and the uncrustables.

It seems to me like most multi-page threads start out with totally innocent, take off into race or something like that, but then always end up with people quoting bible verses back at eachother. I swear, the first post I get to in a long thread quoting a bible verse I usually close the thread and not open it again.

Let's do it right now!

For God so loved the world, that he sent his only begotten son...

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want...

Jesus wept.

The first ones I could come up with!!!!!!

Seriously, if you ever want to talk about me behind my back, just start quoting bible verses for a few posts, and then go nuts making fun of me! You know I'll never read it!
