Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

AHA: I want a link to JOS discussions!

I'm too lazy, I want a handy link to make it easier to subvert!

I think you're trying to subvert HERE :P

I think there should be no link from here to Joel.  Period.

We're no longer psychopaths, we're "disturbing," which I can deal with.

Crisis over.

I had originally considered putting in all the links..  going from ?off to there was a natural part of my day.  But maybe it's good to make a clean break.

I dont really agree.  this place (?off in general) came about because of a mutual interest in Joels site, most of us probably still retain that interest.

so why not make it easy for ourselves?

<g> unless youd rather act like a great crying baby over that whole closing of ?off thing?

"...in the group had probably crossed the line from common obnoxious online behavior to downright psychopathic behavior..."

Looks like we're still psychos from here.

Im not suggesting all of them...just the one to JoS and purely as a convenience.

Well once we have moderators you guys can fight about the sidebar and leave me out of it!  ;)

Joel showed profound lack of respect and even utter disdain for us all when he closed the forum on 3 hours' notice with little explanation and a LOT of condescension.

I retain NONE of my interest in his site and I don't see why any of you would, either, frankly.

Yea, like AHA I'd enter through ?off and then check out the other sites using the sidebar ... it'll be missed but not much.

Oh. Damnit. "downright disturbing." "downright psychopathic"

They're both still there. I saw the one and thought he changed it.

"I retain NONE of my interest in his site and I don't see why any of you would, either, frankly."

?? my interest in JoS was never great, but it was also never based on his interest in, or appreciation of, me.

Frankly Joels opinions on ?off, myself, and markTAW are incredibly boring.

whats *interesting* is making the effort to get from here to JoS as easy as possible.

My interest isn't based on Joel sucking *my* dick, either, but I have much less interest now that he's gone ahead and spat on it.

Oh, great, now the link to Ectopia's gone... 

- I like the familiar look and feel of COT much more,
- I think the general trend was towards here, away from Ectopia
- Simon's got a bug up his ass about the "competition" aspect

But I still wanted to be able to check ectopia to be sure I didn't miss any lingering comments.

Nope, we're still "downright psychopathic" according to Mr. Spolsky.  I mean, come on.
Reminds me of that quote attributed to Leary: "LSD is a dangerous drug; it can cause psychotic breakdowns in people who haven't taken it."

Ultimately Jos is a geek site with a heap of programmers.  admittedly I personally believe that ?off contained most of the *interesting* people, but even despite that the occasional thread of interest appears in the other forums and Ill keep check.

ultimately I dont follow a lot of geek sites...just slashdot, JoS and here.....and....and....now thats all changing...and I feel so alone....and Simon doesn't love me anymore....and..and I WANT MY LINK TO JoS....::sniff::....

actually you could add one to slashdot onto the sidebar as well and Id be even happier :)

aha!  now *thats* a nice solution.

It must have been the tears in my eyes that stopped me from seeing it before.


now, what about that slashdot link?
