so I just gave up on that idea
I did start a few OPs in the Data Dump instead of in GD
Yeah, but if someone (like Jack or me) has View Active Threads as their RI home page, then once again every new thread you create is going to appear on the first page, so that doesn't really solve the problem if you are creating multiple threads on what is essentially one overarching topic.
SLAD, you have been lovingly tending the Nuclear Meltdown Watch thread for over 8 years now (for which I am grateful!). I don't think anyone has ever complained about your periodic updates to that thread, as new developments arise (in Japan and elsewhere). I don't think that you've posted anything about nuclear threats anywhere but in that one thread since you created it. And it doesn't seem like you have felt that your freedom has been curtailed by restricting your posting about nuclear matters to that thread, and only in that thread. What harm would there be in likewise concentrating all your posts on your country's president and those involved with him in one thread? I for one like having all the Fukushima posts in one place instead of scattered all over the place, and perhaps others would appreciate having all your work on other matters concentrated in single mega-threads.
This is, after all, an international forum based in Canada, but even that doesn't mean that the readership would here appreciate new threads (from multiple posters) popping up all the time about Justin Trudeau (and even the Canadians here probably wouldn't appreciate it, given how little attention he gets in this forum as it is). Perhaps you still are thinking that RI is (still?) a going concern and can have an impact on the world at large, and so it's important to plaster the corruption and evildoings of those in power all over the first page. But as I stated earlier – and as should be obvious to anyone who occasionally glances at the number of page views – there are not more than a few dozen people here total, and many of them do not live or vote in the U.S. So, truth be told, nothing I, you, or anyone else here posts is likely to have ANY impact whatsoever on the way things go in the world at large (nothing, really, apart from educating/informing the few dozen peeps still doing penance here). And don't feel that I'm singling you out regarding this issue: I would prefer if others also kept their posts on specific subjects within single threads. No one seems to have a problem doing that with Fukushima, why can't they also do it with Mr. T. and company? (And yes, I am aware that at the moment the main page is not overflowing with threads on that subject from you, but there are some, and more on the second page, and then threads created by others as well, so the number does add up.)
Anyway, please think about your careful cultivation of the Fukushima thread and how that may be, ultimately, a better model for how both you and others might more fruitfully proceed through the turbulent waters of RI.
I treat the Fukushima thread like I treat ALL my threads I keep up with them some people do not like certain threads I can not help what they think or what they do, I am doing exactly what I have done for 15 years, the same thing I was doing at Democratic Underground where I met Jeff and he saw how I was posting and what I was posting and he invited me here and did not put restrictions on either. A couple people here spend their time following me around trashing me day after day year after year I guess that is what they have time for what they chose to spend their time doing I spend my time keeping up with information about certain topics If those people want to continue and spend there time up my butt it is their choice I have other things to do. I have learned very little information from those people only their point of view about me that's their main concern here. A couple members spend all their time trying to get other members banned or just following me around throwing hissy fits like toddlers do, I should try to remember how I treated all my toddlers growing up stand and just watch them spin on the floor until they just tire themselves out. I have other priorities
