    Is it possible to ask people/enforce that we don't post 10,000 threads about the same thing? Someone starts a thread about a hot topic (eg, debt ceiling) and give a one liner when there's already five threads on the same damned thing.

    Can't we keep it all in one spot?

    Also, maybe some descriptive titles? Not sure if "Obama's a weenie!" as a title with "he's going to spend us all into socialism!!!" as a post is all that helpful. USMB is not a place for your Facebook updates.

    Just an idea.

    Here's the start of the problem, " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." But the problem was recently compounded when the scotus decided corporations were people, now the world of words is filled with mountains of words. What to do, what to do. "How often misused words generate misleading thoughts." Herbert Spencer

    People contribute what they can.

    Admittedly many of their contributions aren't deep, but they are as deep and well thought out as they can manage*.

    *(trolls being the exception to this apology, of course)
