    Can we sticky something along the lines of "For the Love of God please stop posting non-apple or technology related 'Post Your ______' threads"? Except of course for personal photos. It just seems to be getting a little out of hand. I know the mods are waste-landing them as they appear, but perhaps a reminder within the board would help?

    i take it my post your toe clippings thread pushed you over the edge? :D

    conclusion: this board does not understand humor or satire

    why cant members post what they want? too many rules on this board as is. dont like a thread, dont click on it. simple. ps. loosen those panties, also.

    This board does understand humour and satire.
    Toenail clippings are neither of those.

    I think MR is quite relaxed and the rules are pretty fair.

    i found it funny. maybe i have perverse sense of humor? especially liked the nice 'mr' arrangement. never could i imagine my nail clippings could incite such a response! unfathomeable. yet pictures of dead animals and bloody scars go unnoticed.

    It was funny, if you're an 8 year old kid.

    Dead animals and bloody scars?:confused:

    Thought this was going to address the huge sizes of pictures being uploaded or linked in the Picture of the Day Thread. Guess not. :(

    I think the key is that the first parody was funny but subsequent threads have grown tired. Remember, someone has to pay for bandwidth and hosting. :)

    And even if the threads get wastelanded, that still stays on the MR bandwith, thus wasting space. All the more reasons not to post picture threads like that.
