why is that thread constantly in the most read threads list?

I ♠ my display name (sarahel), Sunday, 27 September 2009 03:10 (eleven years ago) link

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

bamcquern, Sunday, 27 September 2009 03:13 (eleven years ago) link

i just wonder if it's some quirk in the system. it's always there.

I have had it up to here waiting for the Fingerhut catalogue to be remastered.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

xp - like the subject of a thread i had second thoughts about posting on that was a serious clusterfuck.

sarahel, Monday, 9 November 2009 20:46 (eleven years ago) link

I always have to stop myself going onto thread about bands I don't like to slag them off, as that wouldn't be doing anyone any good.

I am flesh and blood. You are software and circuitry. (chap), Monday, 9 November 2009 21:58 (eleven years ago) link

yeah - i hear you on that one.

I always have to stop myself going onto thread about Picthfork, I don't like to slag them off, as that wouldn't be doing anyone any good.

TGAAPQ (Mr. Que), Monday, 9 November 2009 22:01 (eleven years ago) link

I always like going on the Pitchfork thread because it makes other people who allegedly don't read it cry.

xxp - do you talk about provates or something?

sarahel, Monday, 9 November 2009 22:04 (eleven years ago) link

oh. that's me, sometimes, too. i mean, i can't restrain myself and i should

TGAAPQ (Mr. Que), Monday, 9 November 2009 22:04 (eleven years ago) link

Provates--their new album is great, much improved over that EP last year

TGAAPQ (Mr. Que), Monday, 9 November 2009 22:05 (eleven years ago) link

kinda feel like derailing LJ's epic poll thread and protest vehemently that he should have included track 6 from the last Provates album.

what? I didn't catch that. But my hearing's been for shit since I was a kid.

100 miles isn't really very far - there are people out here that commute that distance to work every day.

I said basically the same thing when I got a ticket for not having my headlights on over the weekend driving my mom's truck.

bamcquern, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 22:02 (eleven years ago) link

i wouldn't mind being a mod, actually.

sarahel, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 22:05 (eleven years ago) link

I just noticed this thread happening. So that comment happened near the beginning of the thread?

I can't

sometimes I think cat power is the only music i agree with

Gravel Puzzleworth, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 22:22 (eleven years ago) link

Agree with, like, the sentiment of the words? Or the entire musical aesthetic? Maybe I shouldn't ask. Maybe this should be a safe place.

bamcquern, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 22:23 (eleven years ago) link

I wasn't gonna ask what you can't, but this is a haven, so I didn't.

sarahel, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 22:25 (eleven years ago) link

that guy is an old friend and collaborator of my boss. He's a good player.

sarahel, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 23:15 (eleven years ago) link

Ned? You worried about pulling a Suzy?

bamcquern, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 23:16 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, and violating my new self-imposed posting limitations.

sarahel, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 23:17 (eleven years ago) link

He's brilliant. My fave is The Crux? I gave it to one of my best friends, so I might've forgotten the title since it's been away.

we have a couple of his albums at work - he's a good guy, a little grumpy. I haven't actually listened to his albums, but I've seen him live. This is the case with a lot of music for me, actually.

sarahel, Wednesday, 2 December 2009 23:20 (eleven years ago) link

If "Hounds of Love" were released today, half of the people raving about it would hate it.

you have as much chance of becoming a mod as me

a. cole, u thic (acoleuthic), Thursday, 3 December 2009 00:49 (eleven years ago) link

my ambitions are quite low - i'd feel thoroughly satisfied being mod of a sub-board only me and two other people post to. I just want to make up fake user names.

sarahel, Thursday, 3 December 2009 02:13 (eleven years ago) link

You can register fake gmail addys and make fake user accounts based on them. The mods will know, though, based on your IP.

Of course I want frosting. I'm a Scorpio. (kenan), Thursday, 3 December 2009 02:23 (eleven years ago) link

too much work.

Everyone who plays an instrument even kind of well. People who speak two languages. People who do hard math. People in science.

The guy in that anecdote was an artist in the Whitney Biennial.

sarahel, Thursday, 3 December 2009 03:17 (eleven years ago) link

I'd have given him at least an 8.

With all due respect I was not looking for your "advice" when I robbed that bank. As any fule could see I was merely venting about the iniquities of the system, m'lud man.

My least favorite argumentative technique I see online is the one where someone makes a reasonable and fairly straightforward request or suggestion, only to have someone respond by suggesting that they actually meant a blown out of proportion version of that request taken to a ridiculous extreme that tries to paint the original poster in a bad light. It’s a shitty, Fox News way of reframing a discussion to put someone unnecessarily on the defensive and it drives me batshit to see it, even on ilx, as often as I do.

Like,
Poster A: I wish there were two more episodes of Succession last season.

Poster B: I can’t believe you think that hbo should cancel every other show they have in production just to refocus their entire operation on one series.

my least favorite argumentative technique is when things dissolve into pushing and shoving

If "the noughties" denoted a zero in the decade we must have been in the numpties since 2010. That might explain a few things.
