    Also, the mechanics of it make it not as straight-forward as one would hope. When threads are merged, all the posts line up in chronological order. The new thread wouldn't "know" which post belonged to which thread, so, depending on what date/time people made their responses, you would have comments that should go together get spread out all over the place with other unrelated comments in between. You'd have somebody's little carrots - ^^ - suggesting that they're replying to the comment above theirs, but if someone's comment from another Brangelina thread was made in between those, that's where it would end up. And the thread as a whole wouldn't end up making a lot of sense. We may be able to turn this chronology feature off, mind you, but I know it's the default.

    To be honest I don't think this is a good idea, myself. Most of the threads are about separate topics, and where they're not, they get merged. Some of us only have an interest in some of the things Brangelina or Britney does, and want to read those threads but not all. Having everything that ever happens to Brangelina all in one thread sort of goes against the design of the forum, imo. A giant Brangelina thread or sub-forum would be more like what you'd see on a fansite, whereas we're reporting on particular gossip items, and treating them like gossip items, which is to say, fleeting and varied.

    Also, if all hell breaks out in a particular thread now, we can lock it down and it's only a small loss - inevitably, fighting will at some point break out in a giant super-thread, so do we want to create one just to have to lock it? Not to mention that the policing of said thread would be ridiculously time-consuming. As it is now, I do my best (as do the other mods) to keep up with the Britney and Brangelina threads to see if there's any nastiness going on, and it takes forever, but at least I can finish up with one thread and know that it's clear to move on the next. I can't imagine sitting down at my desk each day and having to read through 30 pages daily just in one thread. It could end up becoming a free-for-all before any mod could reasonably get to it.

    That said, if SVZ wants this implemented, of course I'd help do it. Just my thoughts on it. It seems far simpler just to not read threads that don't interest you.
    I don't see why mods and posters shouldn't have MAJOR inconveniences like this if it saves even ONE poster from having to read a title thread and decide whether to click on it or not j/k

    Nooooooooo! I am totally against moratoriums (is that the plural?)

    I won't bore everyone shitless with my personal feelings on the subject.

    And, of course, if it's democratically decided a moratorium is the way to go, I'll have to suck it up....!

    Xtina A. That is who. Maybe we can spread the hate and cause her to break down and leave her hubby-who everyone else thinks is fug(but me) and then I can stalk him, abduct him and that could be the beginning of my new life of stalking down and then killing celebrity husbands that people think are fug, but who I like???

    Care Bears? Now I could direct the hate to them. I can't stand those litter effers.

    ^^Of course, if virtually every thread at GR is on these topics, or devolves into these topics, that person should just fuck off and leave GR, right? I want to make sure I understand this correctly. They certainly shouldn't expect, encourage, or even attempt diversity of opinion at GR.

    And anybody who doesn't go along with the prevailing opinion on these myriad threads and has the nerve to mention it has had a "serious break, a mental break."

    What I find amusing is that people are actually admitting that there are several threads a day on EXACTLY the same story, never mind person, yet anyone who points that out should "fuck off and leave."

    Heaven forbid anyone should have a MAJOR INCONVENIENCE in getting to their 28 AJ/BRIT/Paris/Lindsay/Pam...fill-in-the-blank fixes a day.

    Is that about right?

    FYI, I'm sorry I am unpopular here for stating this opinion, but I have no intention of going anywhere just because some people disagree. I'm certainly not demanding/suggesting that others leave or have mental problems because they see things differently. However, I realize that no one is interested in hearing what I have to say, and so I will stop saying it. *waits for inevitable round of shitkicking to follow*

    And now back to the regular programming.

    Well most of us are NOT saying that to you PB. (((hugs))) But in a way it is like the threads dealing with make-up and hair and stuff. I could really care less about that stuff...but I do not go into the threads constantly to say "I do not care about any of this stuff". If you post a differing opinion that is one thing..but posting about disliking the thread topic in general is a different thing. It just seems to be engendering ill will toward you and I do not like that. LEAVE PACIFIC BREEZE ALONE!! SHE IS A HUMAN!!! *stops briefly to apply eyeliner*

    California allows partnership or second parent adoptions thru their AB 25 law. I have no idea if he adopted the three other than what he said in Esquire sometime last year that he did adopt Maddox and Zahara. Since U.S. adoption records are sealed, except for a couple states, who knows.

    ^^Thanks, Soj, but I'm done. *scuttles back to threads where I can agree with everyone's opinion*

    No, not anyone that points that out but anyone that can't stand this forum.

    Just quit bitching about the way everything is done, if you don't like it, move to another thread, clearly no one is going to change just because you don't like the way things are done. I am not trying to be mean but seriously, you don't even come here to gossip anymore, all your posts are about how bad other posters are, if you don't like it and it's that bad then why be a part of it?

    I actually haven't said that other posters are bad, where do you get that? I haven't personally attacked anyone, I disagreed with their opinions, which is different.

    And Sweetie, I have decided to leave these threads. Anyway, going...going...gone.

    ^^That's not the same as attaching THEM, at least not to me. I am challenging their ideas/opinions. I don't even know them. Anyway, I've already said I'm stopping. I will now agree with everything, unless of course, that is wrong, too. It's kind of confusing around here these days now that diversity is frowned upon.

    I don't remember saying you attacked them, I just said you bitch about everything posters are posting. If you don't agree with what they are saying you have to call it out. I like you, PB, I really do. I am just saying, you seem to be a nice person and I can see where you are coming from....I understand you aren't the type of person that likes to bash people, where some of us are. The thing is you have to keep in mind this is a gossipboard and we are all here to waste time and to pick and bash dumb celebrities that need to be bashed. I can almost bet my life that none of us really wish harm on the people that we say we do, it's just our way of expressing how much we dislike them.
    Again, i like you, I do. I am not trying to offend you.

    No, but they don't have to constantly derail threads making their point over and over.

    "Encourage" diversity by posting diverse threads. If no-one wants to read them - tough titty! If people are happily discussing a celeb on a relevant thread, don't derail it - tough titty!

    Getting bent out of shape over an internet gossip board doesn't seem very sane, no........

    Again, it comes back to derailing threads to make your point. Can't you email the mods directly? If they have no problem, well then it's tough titty time again.....

    I feel it's a shame for the mods who do a good job for nothing to provide us with this forum. They should have HOURS more work to accommodate your gripe??

    If you're unpopular for any reason, it's not for having an opinion. It's for derailing threads with your own agenda over and over. If you choose to stay on a forum that isn't providing with you with the arena you want, I won't be losing any sleep over it......
