“LOL @ PhantomSoul. Calling people "childish" and "immature" and "ignorant" for name calling! LMAO!”
“actually, it was the name-calling he deemed childish and immature, not the people
childish and immature name-calling.
he also stated they sounded ignorant, not that they were ignorant.

“and just in case you want to argue with me, cuz i know you will, he may have implied it, and you defineitely inferred it, but he didnt say it.”
“actually, you are incorrect
"Name-calling" cannot be "childish", nor "immature". Saying that somebody's name-calling is childish and immature is saying that THEY are childish and immature. The words spoken cannot be childish and immature as they have no cognative abilities.”
“actually, you are on crack.
Saying that somebody's name-calling is childish and immature is implying that THEY are childish and immature. i am not saying or implying that words spoken are childish and immature. however, the action of name-calling, or calling someone else childish, can be considered immature.
conclusion: he may have implied it, but did not say it. now quit arguing with me. go drain your knee or something”
“By your definition, calling somebody anything is implying it. He CALLED people names.
Being "childish" or "immature" are traits of PEOPLE. Their action that makes them so was only clarified by PS. Being "childish", by definition, is a result of an action - in this case defined by PS as "name-calling". Name calling is only the method by which he determined somebody to be childish or immature. The only thing in his post that could be childish or immature are people. He only further defined how he reached that conclusion. That is the same as saying it, not simply implying it. If he had implied it he would have said "your name-calling could make one question your level of mental maturity". < an indirect reference to immaturity and childishness.

i bet we are really annoying HOI now”
“hog on ice??”
“I did NOT have sex with that woman.
...she had sex with me.”
“Hondorus Outreach Inc?”
“thers a town called hoi?”
“I think so.”
“Vietnam I think.”
“im betting the number of people we've annoyed in our lifetimes could easily populate a small town in nebraska”
“pitts - I don't know what's up with you lately, but I like it.
(please keep the following sentence in context)”
h'oi for short”
“please keep the following sentence in context
did you mean "preceding"?”
“yeah, i meant preceding”
“must've been thinking of "Hoi An"”
“btw, if you hadntve said anything, i wouldnt of thought anything of it, but now that you have, that is a good candidate for out of context quotes”
“apparently Spirit Coyote thought so (strange though, I thought she had me on ignore).
In honor of her taking me off ignore, I present to you the preceding ... I mean the following:
merciful being she is
ignoring no more”
message from Sarge being ignored”
“and back to our original discussion, no matter how long and convoluted your argument is, youre still wrong. it is unfortunate (or perhaps fortunate) that i do not have the time or inclination to destroy your argument. so, therefore, you win, through sheer attrition.”
“he's wrong because he is a righty. Anything to the right is always wrong.”
“now go drain your knee”
“left is right and right is wrong. that's what cost kerry the election.... Can I get me a huntin' license here?”
Currently you list # of messages for a thread (in a given date range). What would be more useful is # of new messages since last we viewed the thread. My inspiration is gmail (or any mail program really). As you refresh the page, you see how many new messages are in your inbox, for example. It could work like that. Once you enter the thread you could see total messages.

“Jim was up early this morning.”
“hehe ... on california time
land of fruit and nuts”
Did you change something with the thread layouts? Seems like the left border changed. Perhaps I'm imagining things.”
“I think you are imagining things”
“The 60s weren't good to me.
My mom bottle fed.”
“Matt. For the "# of views" to be useful, it should reflect the # of views for the date range selected.”
“WOW... I just pulled up this thread to suggest something along these very same lines. My idea is to show total views... and then maybe views for the last 24 hours.
To have 1 post and 1,064 views is a little strange.”
“When matt added the feature he stated he wouldn't coordinate it to the date range.”
“News Item: Matt does not walk on water.”
““News Item: Matt does not walk on water.”
He doesn't? Then I guess I should ask him to turn this glass of water into wine either.”
“I really don't care how many people view a thread.”
“you don't have to walk on water to do this - my suspicion is he doesn't want to do that b/c of the database requirements - it's actually simply to implement if you're willing, but it comes at a price, albeit a small one

“Ha! Other than pure meaningless curiosity, why does one care about thread view counts?”
“Buck - Personally I don't, but if they're on the screen, at least they should be meaningful. If you put your date range back a few weeks, I said he should do away with that and replace it with "new posts since last view". That would be not only informative, but useful.

Wilt Chamberlain would prolly disagree - lol!”
“I could be wrong, but if I had to guess, they're probably just the view counts since the day Matt implemented the view count system thingy. I find all numbers meaningful, even randomly generated ones.”
“hee hee, lizs and sarge think alike”
randomly generated ones
