    until we both look like tremendous dicks to everyone else

    Or we could just skip that part and have everyone think you are tremendous dicks for five minutes.

    Would save time for everyone really :P.

    I think you left a "more" out of that sentence... </spirit_of_the_thread>

    Did you leave a 'more' out of that sentence?

    I have no time for intrigue. I need to know, and I need to know now.

    Well, we could agree to disagree, but in the spirit of the thread, we could also argue heatedly about this until we both look like tremendous dicks to everyone else :)

    Where should we put the 'more'? Eggnuine question.

    Okay, yeah, I've been sitting here for the last couple of minutes throwing 'more' into the sentence at random to find the sweet-spot for maximum lols. I think it's "hyphenated to dicks".

    I think there are about four potential places for "more".

    Well, we could agree to disagree MORE, but MORE in the spirit of the thread, we could also argue MORE heatedly about this until we both look MORE like tremendous dicks to everyone else :)

    I think we already established what was involved in a tremendous dick competition. Anything less is bluff and bluster.

    Yet another of Emma's threads devolves into a discussion of dicks.

    A trend perhaps Emma? Just sayin'

    I was thinking of 'MORE tremendous dicks', but that works.

    ETA: No I wasn't. Really I wasn't. Oh crap, never mind.

    'The More Tremendous' sounds like the name of a D-rate '70's Funk Star.

    I am tempted to adopt it as a pseudonym

    I'm hardly gonna argue with that.

    I got a thing. A More Tremendous thing.

    Really? Cos, I was going to say that you could suggest everyone sits around thinking about tremendous dicks for a few minutes.

    (And right now is where I leave, having expended my daily “smutty and inappropriate comment” quota on one comment.)

    quota

    ????

  • Bart Janssen, in reply to Emma Hart,

    Since there is apparently a quota we have to meet ...

    Evolves, Bart. E-volves.

    I stand firmly corrected.

  • Emma Hart, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    Let's say... it's not a very restrictive quota.

    I stand firmly corrected.

    It's Friday, right?

  • Hannah,

    Just got around to reading this at home, so I can log in to comment. Being of the lurker persuasion, I agree with a comment way back about other people saying my point of view succinctly, so not feeling the need to post.
    And the more recent comments that to comment add in the "me too" comment should be done.

    I think that that sort of comment is not really a comment, and so doesn't add anything to the conversation. What I think would be good is a "I agree" button. Yes, akin to the facebook like, but being pedantic, it is just agreeing.

    I imagine it would be used when people agree with the whole comment posted. If they agree only with part, or disagree, then a comment would be warranted, so I don't see the need for other buttons.

    It could bring more lurkers out in an unobtrusive manner, and may lead to a more accurate gauging of the "community opinion" for newcomers to get a handle of.

    I have seen this sort of concept mooted before, so I know its not a new idea. I assume it is tricky to implement? Or are there other reasons why it would be A Bad Thing?

    "I agree" button

    Lately we seem to have developed an informal "+1" custom.

    Which just happens to be exactly what Google are calling their new equivalent of Facebook's Like button/data-harvesting service.
