Question of immediate import

By santeewelding ·
Moments ago, I saw a cockroach on the wall. It scurried downward, behind the monitor, too late for me to act.

Momentarily, it showed up with antennae twitching above the keyboard. I whacked it with my TR-recommended swatter. Not hard enough, or I missed. Scurried away, it did.

Absentmindedly, while reading some member dismissing us for talking about talking too much, I put the tumbler to my lips for another sip of sherry.


It had fallen in. It struggled against my upper lip.


Do we talk about talking too much?

Perhaps not "talking too much",

but TMI - Too Much Information.

This does not nest in the realm of either, for me. But, blech, indeed.

edit: And what of these complaints of too much meta (or meta meta)?

I don't hang with them folks. Don't understand them and don't truck with them, either.

A small hint ,then,

by seanferd In reply to Beats me

of where such dismissal lives in the threads?

Pah. I probably don't want to know. Silly of me to ask. So very tired of people's experiments in miscommunication, intentional or otherwise, trolling or simply unthinking.

I'll stay where it is warm.

That guy has most of his facts pretty straight, but they don't support his (rather vague) proposition, which I happen to find fairly meaningless.

Someone else's assertions about TCP/IP, HTTP, and the military are quite out of this world.

It's why I stopped visiting the Twin Threads in short order. It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion, repeatedly, from slightly different angles.

Too bad we don't care for other forms of chit-chat. Probably would be interesting.

Pays, I think

To nevertheless hold your nose, observe, and to maintain your dignity, which those in the Twin Threads have not. They be leaking out everywhere. They are their own Julian Assange.

First, Donovan Colbert

Then, Chad Perrin.

Both overly long, first about one thing, then a completely other that slid by the premise of the first; then, the two more or less mucking about in the middle, with everyone contributing to the mess.
