    Anyone else besides me read the Wasteland section now and then for a good chuckle? Sometimes some really outrageous stuff shows up in there that I never even noticed in the main threads before it was deleted.

    Of course... great fun...

    I'm a bit disappointed about one thing: Included images and sorts are not shown... which essential ruins a masterpiece of a thread like the Demi awards (which I understand had to be closed, but never fully understood why it had to be wastelanded in the first place). Oh, well, there are other nice, absurd threads to laugh at... ;)

    I read them most of the time, but I ignore the free ipod ones, they are just a total waste of time!

    Yup, i also read the archives.. i really like reading threads about new products Apple release, and seeing what thought about them then and were they went today. The first iPod thread is fun..some said the 20GB Creative play was going to win:rolleyes:

    Certainly I do! It's like reading the Obituaries Columns - often better than the current news.

    I usually check out the wasteland once or twice a week --- haven't checked it at all this week, though. This thread reminded me that it's time for a good chuckle.

    I notice that wasteland gets new threads in spurts. So, I try and read the same way - I don't go there for a few days/week and then read everything all at once.

    For some reason, the title made me think the OP was referring to this Wasteland.

    To answer the question, not really.

    God. If only people would stop reading that Wasteland and start reading the rejoinders written by other poets, many of which are better!

    Sometimes. I was going to make a joke about sending this thread to the Wasteland, but I decided not to. I don't know why.

    Favourite forum. :cool:

    It seems like all the really good threads are now being deleted outright though. :(
