    This Forum is Useless

    Look at this; there hasn't been a new post since the 3rd, and that one was just a test. I'm sure others would agree with me that this forum could be replaced with something more useful, such as a suggestions box or a non-hardware related forum for shootin' the ****. If there really was an interview going down, whoever was going to conduct it could easily post a message in the General forum and get a boatload of responses; we don't really need a separate forum for it. Let's see what everyone else thinks about this, including Mark.

    Amen!

    Lets call it the "Shoot the **** Forum"

    I like it. Really though, this form is kind of a waste right now I agree. Lets spice it up a little bit, kind of like a free for all forum or something. You know, like maybe just those naked pics of David P's mom

    Hey, don't knock on iMacs; they're the best doorstop money can buy! I think a **** Shootin' forum would go over really well. Just think of all the flame wars that could erupt over a preference in trucks... And as for those pics of my ma, um, Yer mamma!! /me runs away crying

    I've seen so many damn flame wars in the other areas, cant imagine what it would be like in here.

    I know whats up with that post now.

    yet exist in June. When they changed the forum name they just left all the old posts intact and let them slowley dwindle away.
    I was trying to remember earilier today
    what the old forum name was.. and for the life of me I cant remember.

    There was another board that they removed, but I didn't realize that they just rebadged it - they should have just o/ced it instead
    I call it "No-Pants Wonderday," but it turns out the police just call it "Thursday." Go figure.

    Rich, it was something like Interview Requests/Questions or something like that. When HWC was getting ready to interview somebody about something, they would ask the members to post the types of questions they would like answered (remember when they interviewed AMD VP? They asked us all what questions they should ask him).
    The best post I remember from it was when some dope-hat posted a bunch of cuss words, probably thinking nobody would care, then was booted out of HWC when a moderator happened to see it.

    Where in the world did David P go? I haven't seen him here in months.
