Too little focus in this topic
Calypsis4 is running all over the place and other members don't have the sense not to chase him.

Closing this topic in (more or less) 15 minutes.

The next one needs to be more precisely defined.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150

Reopened for final/summary statements only
Me, I think this topic is a monument to the lack of focus.

If there is a subtopic someone wishes to pursue further, please propose a new topic. Please define the theme and scope of discussion pretty tightly.

FINAL/SUMMATION MESSAGES ONLY
We have been and are in the final summary messages phase of the topic. If your recent message(s) were not of that sort, they should not have been posted. Only 1 last member message per member. If you posted an non-summary message, too bad.

Probably permanently closing soon.

Terminal topic abandonment - Closing
Recent messages have had minimal at best contact with the topic theme, and most were not even anywhere in the vicinity of the topic theme.

Closing this one down. Propose a new topic if you wish to revive something from this topic.
