I normally don’t quibble with mod actions, but I too would like to know huccome the thread was locked. I thought it might shape up to be an interesting debunking of an UL (eventually, once everybody got all the pee jokes out of their system) and isn’t that what we’re all about?
I also found Colibri’s comment to be puzzling:
Umm…every time someone comes in to GQ and asks, “Will drinking Mountain Dew really make my 'nads shrink?” we don’t normally testily demand a cite from him that the effect actually occurs before we fight his ignorance.
We also, when people come into GQ asking about Trivial Pursuit/John’s Bathroom Reader-type factoids, don’t normally sigh mightily and kick in a gratuitous mild ad hominem, to the effect that “we just knew who would be asking the question”… What, is he bustin’ your butt with an endless stream of Trivial Pursuit-type factoids? Then don’t open any of his threads, eh?
