Let me start by first saying this is not directly directed at anyone. I’m normally not one to pipe up and be a cranky wet towel but I had a stressful day.
This is of course aimed at the insane and sudden upcropping of Best _____ lines, which seems to have started with Best Homer Simpson Lines and spawned into a ultra dense vortex of annoying spinoff threads.
Now sure, I’ll admit, quotes are fun. Nice for a quick laugh. But for the love of Buddha, Allah and Bishnu people, WHY DO WE NEED 20 THREADS ABOUT QUOTES?!?!?!?!? One was fine, 3 was still kind of alright if your desperate, but just now when I loaded up the Cafe, I see 5 quote threads in a row (not including the ones that took up shelter elsewere). And that there puts my knickers in a twist. It happened with the Batman vs threads and its happening yet again.
Come now people, its a big wide world out there full of Arts and Entertainment. There so much to marvel at and belittle. There is no good reason to have a bunch of threads about quotes. One thing thats great about these boards is I can come on and in 20 minutes learn walops of information on everything. And yeah, maybe a funny quote or two. But now when these fad threads come about, everyone jumps on the bandwagon and the boards lose a little bit of their uniqueness and flare.
I’m not saying that everyone should stop making quote threads to preserve the sanctity of the SDMB, but please, is it to much to ask to use a little discretion? There plenty more the talk about then just what random people said at one time or another.
