I know I will be flamed for this but its the truth. People are SICK of the way Stevie, Rahul, Eager Beaver , Sahir S and some others just turn other peoples Questions or posts into their own small party. I mean , its ok once in a while but each and every post on this formerly-enjoyable Forum ends in these fellows trying to prove themselves and digressing from what the actual post was. I guess ,the Admins should just make a New forum for these fellows and let them play there or Newbies just wont feel encouraged to post or reply any Messages.
Go Ahead guys, flame me and prove me right.

I am fully with you on this.
Their "sense" of humor has been causing me nausea.

I tend to agree, but only to a certain point. The forum is, after all, meaningless drivel!!
But if you don't like their posts you can always just skip over everything with their names on it.
I do most of the time --

i have to admit that i get tired of some of the threads... but then again, someone else might not like my posts imagine that!
so, i guess the answer is: if you don't like it, then don't look at it!
kind of like; if you don't like meat... don't eat at McD's!
( sorry, couldn't help it )

I Agree its Meaningless Drivel, but even in the deepest Chaos, there should be some System.

Tintin, you are not alone (I just hope you're not lumping me in with them). But then again, whereever you go, there will always be clowns (or those who think they are), eh? On the other hand, they do stay true to the purpose of this forum.

Yep, I do Appreciate their Sense of humour and have had a good laugh many a times. But its when it gets overdone , it starts to irritate people and they just stop posting any non-Meaningless posts. I am sure when the Admins drafted the name Meaningless Drivel, it meant anything except Java.
Anyway, I am NOT against these guys. My Only motive was to Identify the probs that we might face if it continues. I love this Saloon too much to see people gradually stop coming here.
Its THE Place.
So lets keep it that way.

I was just thinking the same thing the other day. I have no problem reading postings of different subjects. But all that back and forth babbling among 2 or 3 people about nothing even close to the original topic is getting very old very fast for me. I haven't read some of the latest additions to certain postings (I deliberately avoided them). It sounds like a bunch of teenagers with nothing important to do. There is a difference between adult meaningless drivel and teenage meaningless drivel. Hope we don't sink in that direction too much farther.

I think some people need to lighten up a bit. THis is a place where anything goes and there are no rules. Everyone has a different personality and looks at thigns in different ways. Everyone also has a different way of having fun. I think this is a great place to come to enjoy yourself a bit without having to worry about being all serious.
Noone is forcing you to read any of this. If you dont like it then by all means dont read it. And if puts you off that much then just stop coming here. Its as easy as that. But i think you people are taking this way to seriously.
Live Life, Have Fun, You only live once, make the most of it and enjoy yourself.

Systems suck. Although the universe isn't chaotic at all, it appears so, but the real thing is you can't control every aspect of people. That's what I hate about government. Just let people do whatever the hell they want. Freedom is chaos, and you can't bring order to chaos. Many people would suffer from what I'm saying, but they will be allright when they are dead.

Yeah, for the very reason that when we do not talk about Java, then we do not know what we are talking about. If I am intersted in some social problems, I read what experts have to say, with proper statistics and so on. When we discuss vegeterian or, say, religious issues here, it is �meaningless drivel�, alas. We are just having fun. And I appreciate that Stevie+Rahul+Sahir do not allow us to become too serious about our posts.
I love this Saloon too much to see people gradually stop coming here.
Well, I do gradually stop coming here, because of some other posters, not Stevie+Rahul+Sahir. SRS�s posts are WHY I STILL come here. For me it�s the most enjoyable part of this forum. I do not want to say that everybody else have to feel the same, just wanted to stress that you can find all kinds of opinions here

Yes you are right. Stevie and Rahul are a pestilence on Meaningless Drivel. Their behaviour is disgusting, to say the least. I request the moderators to take stern action against any future references to Baldamus' shining pate and Hairyious' resemblance to a rain forest. As for the accusations against Sahir I must plead not guilty. If you knew the truth you will realise he is more to be pitied than censured. All these sick jokes posted here under his name is really not his work but that of his evil twin Claudius Ignoramus.
While on the subject I must say Chumma Fun needs to be included in this list as well. His lewd jokes offend the sensibilities of the delicately nurtured members of this forum such as Tintin , Ling Wu etc...

Tell me about it! I bring them back from the dead and they still won't respond to my control!

First , If u have a look at the Subject under which I have posted it , u will see that its Climated Related. So its entirely relevant.
Second, No topics are boring to people who know what to talk.As long as its relevant to what everyone is discussing, it should be OK.
And thanks for the attention u r giving me. I mean, u wud have read a lot of posts before coming to one which u cud quote here. Feels Good.
