Well done everyone.  What a fine collection of random blather.

And thanks to our missing talkative posters, our Baileys, our Foodbunnies, our Matthew Gallants, who helped make this topic possible.  But now are dead.

A moment of silence for those comrades which have fallen away from us.

And there used to be a way to stick it to the Man. It was called rock 'n roll, but guess what, oh no, the Man ruined that, too, with a little thing called MTV!

so did we miss the 500,000th post? Because obviously that post is much rounder, and therefore more important then the 600,000th post.

That's not entirely the reason he left.  That was the final straw, yes, but he left primarily because he was tired of debating the same shit over and over and over again.

So what? We had a new debate about vegetarianism in which most people disagreed with him* and he decided to leave? I imagine that he took his virtual football home with him. Anyway, there's no conch; you don't need permission from the Speaker of the House before you start talking about something. If PlanetCrap is stagnant it's not because we debate the same shit over and over, it's because people keep leaving forever and the pool of pet topics is getting smaller and smaller.

Oops:


*I wouldn't mind but it wasn't a particularly fierce debate. If I recall, Px declared that vegetarianism is The One True Ethical and Moral Way, got all pissed off because people disagreed with him and left forever.

If that makes you happy, great.  It wasn't working for him so he left.

I'm not sure what you're trying to convince me of at this point.

This isn't a dig at you Warren, but why do you still read/post here? It's an honest question because of all of us you seem to be the most cynical about the board and its worth.

Re: Px

Maybe he did leave because the 'Crap was stale but I remember him coming relatively late to the game after people had already started complaining it was past its prime.  I can't see him missing the days of thousands a posts a day or having your posts about Scott Miller responded to because I don't think he was here around those times.  I could be wrong.

Maybe that was the reason, though, or maybe he was really, really busy as some have said.  The fact is that he got into this really weird argument about Veganism, got on a really high horse and then rode off saying 'never again' and as far as I'm concerned, that was the weakest Planetcrap exit ever.

I have to disagree.  The weakest Planetcrap exit was Jeet's fifth one.  That was lame.  Or maybe his seventh one, that sucked too.

Hmmmm...good point.  I wasn't really counting Jeet because he never truly leaves.

BTW, Frets on Fire is a fucking awesome game! I downloaded all the Guitar Hero 1 and 2 tracks for it and it just simply rocks my socks now. The only thing is my keyboard sucks (it's a PS/2 POS) and I looked around on hardware store websites for a USB replacement but haven't found anything really suitable layout-wise.

Maybe a PS/2->USB converter would be the best idea as this keyboard has a fine grip, it's just that it's slow and you can't press too many keys at once.

I just got back from the Daft Punk concert in Amsterdam. Ho-ly fu-cking shit that was fucking genius. It was the exact same set from last year when they played at Coachella and in Belgium, which is too bad but was to be expected. They did have a 15-20 minute encore at the end with some stuff I'd never heard before.

Really glad I went there and got to see them.

deadlock,

my point is, Px changed quite a bit before bailing out entirely - and not for the better, either. Maybe it was the sudden fame, maybe the 'not drinking so much anymore', maybe something entirely else - I don't know OR care.

The only change I care about is that he stopped posting.  All the other stuff is immaterial.  He's a lot younger than he comes across, so it's not all that surprising that he's changing when you consider his actual age.  I know I changed a lot in my 20s.

Seriously - what's all that got to do with age? Px used to be one badass poster, and then he turned all wuss on us. That's all that matters. I refuse to chalk that change all up for 'maturing' or whatever. Fuck him, is all I'm sayin' - he's a buster, plain and simple.
