I’ve grown concerned over the time some of my fellow dopers spend reading (or posting) on this board. According to my math, some do little else in their lives (and that’s including biological needs!) which implies they have an unhealthy addiction to the the SDMB.
Knowing that You, the dedicated staff members, are generally immune to that obsession and that you strongly support healthy living, I modestly suggest shutting down the board for a few weeks (4-6?) to force the addicts to face their condition and help them by removing access to the drug.
We can’t blame this on society any longer, we must take responsibility and do something drastic and possibly unpopular.
Based upon my interpretation of French Connection II it’s not a good idea to impose cold turkey on these poor suckers.
During the 4-6 weeks this board is withdrawn from circulation you will need to provide an SDMB substitute to ease their passage from a glorious oblivion. May I suggest a Synthetic Dope Message Board (Synthetic DMB) is set up for this purpose. It must demonstrate a degree of cross-tolerance with the Straight DMB so that addicts are kept mentally stable for a few weeks whilst being denied the ‘rush’ supplied by the original product.
