hmmmm..... interesting. BUT, a gang of seagulls could drive a car no problem. Three of them on the pedals, two to steer, and one to sqawk instrutions to them from the dashboard. There, simple eh?

I expect seagulls would be crap drivers, because they don't have hands, and even overcoming that difficulty, they certainly wouldn't be able to operate the pedals and see out at the same time. And I'm not sure they have enough power to push a clutch at all, so unless they were in an automatic they wouldn't even be able to start.

It's not the spelling, it's the inanity - the constant "Is xxx rubbish?" sort of thread that's posted more as a form of cyber-Tourette's than in a genuine search for an answer. If I really believed that John was interested in and could learn from the responses I might have a different opinion, but all I see is rather sad attention seeking of the 'Look at me, I'm zany, I am,' sort of fashion.
Such people - the sort of people who ask a question and don't give a toss about the reply, or who don't engage their brains before posting apparently random verbiage do rattle my cage.
It's not that his opinions are different from mine, it's just that they're not even fully-fledged opinions; they're the equivalent of someone in a pub lurching up and shouting through a haze of crisp fragments: "Seagulls! They're crap drivers, aren't they?" Once may be funny, but too often and it's maybe time to change pubs or have a quiet word with the landlord.
Perhaps it's a north-south thing. Perhaps it's just that I'm an intolerant stupid moany person. But if someone can point out to me the gnomic wit and subtle humour that I've clearly missed in the original post, I'll gladly stand them a pint of whatever it is John drinks.
Anyhap - it's probably better than I don't go near these sort of threads in future.

I think the basic idea of the thread was to entertain.

As Eeyore says, ballons, parties, here we are! and there we are!

If you are a librarian, or a quantity surveyor who was just passing byand got sucked in. If you were dragged away from the serious concerns of the day: deciding who was nicest Saddam Hussein or the IRA.......call it a sabbatical.

Perhaps you can make the time up if you get up earlier and start taking cold showers.

The deadly serious nature of this thread is hinted at in the title - one would have thought.....

Interesting that some humor seems to have trouble being communicated through written media. I don't have much experience with jOhn (he disapeared about when I showed up, hmmm....) but I haven't noticed any reason from anything I've seen him post and things I've seen people say about him to take anything he says seriously. It occurs to me there's a lot of stuff that gets posted in BS that I would find offensive if I thought people were being serious. But since I don't it's all funny. I think I'm probably happier this way, and if I suddenly find out these people are being serious I'll be very disapointed.

Gervase, I've been wondering about John, too. He sure puts out a lot of BS. In general, I avoid any thread he has started. This time, I got sucked in because I am a librarian. If his threads have anything to recommend them, I guess I'm just too dense to see it.

Hmmm, Gervase- you decide that jOhn is the village idiot because..?

Perhaps it's that his posts are not in perfect English, correctly phrased and spelled?

Or because his opinions differ from your own?

Neither are good reasons to think of someone as an idiot.

He has certainly rattled your cage, perhaps it might be useful to consider why?

Sorry John, I still don't get it.
What was the point of your original post?
Maybe I am stupid, but I replied because I think:
Libraries = not rubbish.
First post = rubbish from stupid moany person who maybe should read some books instead of writing drivel every time his fingers stray near a keyboard.
Silly me, eh, trying to reason with the Mudcat Village's very own idiot!

you read all thread, and post to it loasds of times, then say "johns threads are rubbish"

this is make you looking like a stupid person!

perhaps you will allow me to draw an analogy?

a man goes to restaraunt, eats meal, waiter goes up to him a few times, asks is everything ok?
man says "yes, its great, really nice etc"
man finishes all meal, licks plate clean,
but then moans, = "that meal was rubbish, i'm not paying"!




If you don't like my threads, don;t read them.
dont read them, post to them a few times, then moan about them!

Nope. Google (and the rest of the search engines) make NO distiction between true and false, and for that matter whether or not the web pages that they have stored and indexed ("cached") still even exist.

And did you know that it's library school graduates (i.e., librarians) who developed the indexes and do the indexing? True.

As for offending everyone...darn, I thought that was my job. Maybe that's why nobody comes to visit me. But then, this IS Idaho, and bathing is optional (if not actively discouraged).

Rapaire I think there is a slight misunderstanding. A library, by rights, should contain enough material to be able to ffend almost anyone, true, because it represents such a wide spectrum of points of view.

That does not mean your job is to offend as many people as possible!! Just that you should be equipped to do so!! Viva la difference!

As Greg Stevens writes about his library, so it seems to be happening here too. More CDs, DVDs, Videos, computer games (Even with computers to play them on), lots of desks for non-ratepayers to do their homework on and to hold noisy social groups around, toddlers running about screeching.....
less and less books, less peace, no archives, only books that are recognised as 'classics' are replaced with new copies-everything else,regardless of popularity, gone forever.

I know change is a constant, but in this case I don't like it.
Rubbish? Not yet, but working toward it.
