Ever pop into an interesting looking thread only to find that it’s simply a tepid compilation of lists? Favorite bands, movies, etc. Two things:
These types of threads are not good reading and generally provoke little or no discussion; they’re just a forum for people to maniacally type in whatever lame bands they like listening to while they jerk off.
The questionable and vomitous tastes of some of the SDMB regulars rear their ugly heads in these types of threads; “Hey Bob! I like “Mr. Roboto” too!” “Hey Jane! I think Styx totally rocks too! They’re the best band ever! I come in my pants repeatedly when I listen to one of their records!” “OOOOH, I just love “Friends”, it’s such a good show, I wish I could face-fuck Chandler day and night!” “Hey you know who’s really good? Alanis Morissette. I wish she had a dick so she could fuck me in the ass!”
Thanks for listening.
