    Our discussion in Lowest Common Denominator makes me think, wouldn't it be great to have a place where members could link to threads that are worth the time to reread?

    My own nomination in this category is Lex's (Again) Coming Out thread, which I found inspirational the first time I read it, and I revisit every time he posts to it again.

    What threads would you recommend reading again? Link them below...

    Re: Does shaved head=small penis?

    All I could find there was you resurrecting a two-year-old thread by Yoselin (to which no-one had ever responded) with... a post containing two smileys.



    resurrecting ancient threads of little or no worth today.
    again authored by Alex8 lol so I ask is it worth the trouble ......

    this is how i was treated for daring to go back to the old threads ......yea i really find ya post ironic....

    While it may be ironic, what's odd is that Alex's comments were the only ones that drew your disdain, when others were just as, if not moreso, scornful of you.

    I'm sorry that you feel mistreated, but my point was not about reviving threads as much it was about linking to threads that deserve a re-reading. I think your interest in bumping threads that look like they could be interesting is not without merit, but a different issue. Not criticizin', just saying.

    Wally thanked her because the thread Novice cited as worth rereading was one he posted, which is quite flattering.


    Personally I like to reread old threads I posted, not because I'm a nihilist, but because it's interesting seeing what my state of mind was like 2 or 3 years ago [joined this site before the age restriction was in place, over it now], and seeing how some of the things I saw as huge problems are tiny obstacles I barely remember now. Infact I think I'll go on a trip down memory lane now. :p

    What a great idea for a thread. Celebrating threads that were incredible to read or possibly ones that helped others come into their own. TO be honest, I can't think of any threads off the top of my head, but I know there have been a few posts,

    Lex's coming out, novice's revealing of his mugging, and more than a few of the posts from Zora, Alex8, snoozan, ego, fortiesfun, and a few others... Some of the best posts here were the ones that came from the heart and guided others.

    This thread concerns previous quality contributions to the site (ones that have generated copious positive discussion, for example), not about randomly resurrecting trash.

    Your own comment on the "Yoselin" thread you resurrected --- to which no-one had ever responded in all the years it had existed in cyberspace --- was a 'bullshit' smiley. So clearly even you realized it was garbage.

    I'm not sure why I have become the subject for your vituperation across multiple threads, when others also commented on how pointless those thread resurrections were, and likewise picked you up on posting eleven consecutive responses on a thread, etc.

    But if my posts are that annoying to you, then perhaps you just need to ignore me and stop dragging this campaign on from thread to thread. I responded lightheartedly on your main resurrected thread in a hope of dispelling any unpleasantness, but you seem to have decided that I need to be 'ripped into' on every thread. It would really be nice if we could both cease all interaction with one another immediately as of this thread.

    Two previous threads with quality content by fortiesfun, which already point towards past attempts at "FAQ/wiki" coverage at LPSG would obviously be:

    umm, everyone has threads that are interesting to them, no matter how old they might be. It's so petty to complain about someone posting on an old thread. If someone dares to create a new thread where the topic has already been discussed somebody from the post police always rudely and impatiently directs them to an "old" thread and berates them for not searching the topic and posting on the old thread. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. So post on any thread you damn well please, if others don't like it they can pass on by it.

    May I ask a question?

    Often, the purpose of a thread is to gain knowledge from other posters, correct? Well, doesn't guiding people to older responses help them gain this knowledge?

    I'm just trying to allow people the opportunity to understand. I've guided people to threads on more than one occasion. What usually happens is, people start a thread in the celebrity forum without looking at first. Those of us who have been here a while have seen the results from the threads. We may not all say it nicely, but the fact is, people are trying to find something, and others deliver it. Whether it be from responding to the current post, or guiding someone to other posts of the past (ones that may have links to pictures etc)

    Thanks Jeffy, but I think that if a posting of mine is potentially of use to others, I'd rather it be the one on prophylaxis. It's also a logical following to Wally's post.

    Which was actually part of the thread:

    You are absolutely right, Jeff.....it's a great thing that veteran members guide newer or infrequent visitors to threads discussing what they are looking for. My only beef is when it's done in a rude way or in a manner to make the poster feel stupid for trying to add a topic for discussion. Most of the time it involves members who've recently joined, just seems it could be done in a more inviting way a lot of times.

    Very true, sir. However, one can only work on their own attitude. I shall try to make my guiding posts a bit more pleasant if possible.:smile:

    Btw, Freddie53 wrote a post once upon a time about his life and his sexuality, and I found it rather helpful. It taught me about living life a bit fuller and not having regrets about choices I make.

    *damn, if I could remember the titles, I would be doing a lot better*:rolleyes:
