    Merged about 30 threads in this one forum JUST from today.. Topics on the shutdown showdown, what is a wall, emergency powers, all those stories. Just because you have a comment -- doesn't mean there should be a brand new thread... Just because a different media source weighs in -- don't need a new thread.

    We're cutting lots of slack on the "on topic" rule here. Don't want this place to look like Twitter. Bad enough y'all are talking past each other when you're TOGETHER in one thread on a topic. Don't need to make that worse by having 4 or 6 simultaneous shouting matches on every daily outrage...

    Gonna start closing/warning threads on folks who are abusing the thread creation button and NOT checking the listings before they post. Use judgement and courtesy please..

    Wonderful, I've always wondered why we had to have dozens of threads on a daily basis about the same basic headline.

    Not that I mind ridiculing people for it, but it gets old.

    It seems I have read this duplicate thread/merge talk in other threads. Shouldn’t they all be merged into one?

    Ya know, if you really think about it.... nearly all threads are in some way all about the same thing and the board would only have 2 threads going...….1.) Trumps a loser & 2.) Trumps a winner.

    There's no shortage of out-of-work comedians around here.

    Today's flavor du jour would be "Da Wall".
