I call for a revolution of the Gentoo Forum junta that runs this place. Let us rise up and overthrow the technocrats that micromanage our discussions here.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that all forums are created equal, that all discussion topics are created equal, that there should only be ONE FORUM.

Subscribe today to O.F.F. -- the One Forum Front, and bring down the hegemony of discrimination that corrupts further progress of Gentoo discussions.

Where does this fit in with the Judean People's Front and the People's Front of Judea that I'm already used to? Romanes Eunt Domus!

Sorry, just a little Monty Python to get me through the day.

I wish one of the moderators would get in here and plug up that cornhole. :lol:

Preach on, brother! Stick it to The Man! Let's show those Moderator fatcats who does the real work around here!

Why stop there? Why discriminate between topics with this "thread" concept that is clearly just another tool of the counterrevolutionary running dogs of oppression? There should be only ONE THREAD! Can I get a witness?

How's this - you could just get some guestbook software, and have everyone come post things in it. It would be like, if, you know, the "longest thread ever", like, totally took over the entire forums. Wouldn't that just be, I don't know, totally cosmic and out of sight and tubular?

Uh-oh, I might be ineligible. I've already got a membership card in my wallet for O.N. - Or Not.

But what about these accounts, post counts, and even worse: the class system? We should do away with these bourgeois tools of oppression. Everyone's account will be named "user", and they'll have no profile or post count. And definitely none of this "Avatar" stuff: we must embrace total equality!

Right! And to secure total equality we must not allow anyone to post. Because inevitably they will have different, unequal thoughts and write those thoughts in the forums. Let us rise up and replace the forums with a blank screen.

Dear Copernicus:

The ONE THREAD concept is truly a revolution of revolutions! A transvaluation of all values! I have sat in front of my monitor for two days now, transfixed by the words ONE THREAD. Am I a prisoner or have I been set free? You are most dangerous. You are real trouble.

The pace of our progress is breathtaking and mighty. The carbuncly fatcats that reign over the Gentoo Forums will soon be swept aside by the winds of change.

Let us rest tonight for tomorrow we will fight . . .
