I think that we need to remember the JavaRanch is a JAVA forum. The title "Meaningless Drivel" is only in relation to it's relativity to Java - not to a topics importance in the real world. There have always been discussions of "Great Importance" in this forum, and they will continue to happen.
But if they don't relate to Java or a related technology - they should be in Meaningless Drivel.
If you want Meaningfull Drivel you will need to go to a forum on politics or whatever.

The title was meant to be amusing and to imply that only java is worth talking about. We really can't lose our sense of humor - even in the face of such horror, or we will already have lost.

OK. My own opinion is that Meaningless Drivel should really be renamed Miscellaneous, or perhaps "Other Stuff", so that the name doesn't belittle the topics discussed.
