You can always think up a lot of OP's about sex.

Sex and the Christian. Sex and the Priest. Sex and the Choirboy. Sex and the Organ. Sex Before Communion. Sex After Communion. Sex During Communion.

The Missionary Position. The Vacation Bible School Position. The Consistory Position. The Baptistery Position. The Vestry Position. Sex In A Vestry.

What is the Proper Christian Attitude about Sex? What Kind of Sex do the Inhabitants of Hell Have? Is There Sex In Heaven? Is There Sex In Purgatory? Is There Sex in the Presbyterian Church?

Yeah, that'll get you right in there as a Valuable New Shipmate. Lots and lots of Sex.

Janine's relentless campaign to "Bring Back T'n'T" continues.

I see two possible outcomes; a (very) Private Board or a warning (or worse) for crusading.

Oh and dear Newbies, if you do have a hobbyhorse, ride it all over every board, thread and cafe conversation. Everyone will be so impressed by your determination.

If you can't think of anything new to say, just copy and paste something someone else posted elsewhere. No one will notice.

Threads in Purgatory or Kerygmania which you find upsetting can surely be brought under control by a post consisting entirely of proof-texts. (Epistle to the Hosts 2:15) Behold, it is written in the book of Jasher. (Epistle to the Pedants 17:3) Everyone follows such arguments automatically, because they consist entirely of the Word of God. (Book of Gödel 3:14) Anyone who attacks such a post is rejecting the Word of God, and has no place on a Christian website. (Book of Angst 22:7)

If you are not getting enough, constantly discussing it on every thread might make up for it. Or get you in touch with some other nympho.

Oh, and has anyone mentioned extended nesting quotes? Those will show everyone how good you are with the quote function.

If a thread you like seems to be sinking down the board, posting a few lines which don't actually say anything will send it back up to the top without needing you to actually turn your brain on...

Dead horses is to be regarded as a list of topics which are cutting, divisive and appealing, we never bore of them. Keep starting either direct copies of Dead Horses threads, or threads loosely based on them.

Also remember that real men don't use preview post. People admire your honesty in bad spelling and code, rather than those wimps who use preview post to alter their ideas. Really preview post is an example of indirect censorship on the boards [Biased]

It's also customary when looking at long threads (say, 5 pages or more) to not bother reading the earlier posts, but instead state ina forceful, hostile manner, your opinion. When Erin says that it's already been said, just say "well to be honest, I couldn't be bothered reading all the posts up until now," people will understand completely and take particular note of your uncompromising stance on your opinions, and your belief that we should never tire of hearing about them.

I could manage Thursday evenings between Michaelmas and Candlemas, but not until 8 pm. Do they do food?

And of course triple posts are even more endearing.
