    More complaining threads

    It seemed like we don't have enough complaining threads, so it seemed like it would be good to start a thread to complain about complaining.

    Somebody made the point that we don't have enough of these threads with polls, so this is an attempt to fill a need.

    Also, we don't have nearly enough Hawk Talk threads, so feel free to get all of your Hawk Talk needs filled here as well, and then make sure to complain about it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: More complaining threads

    Gotta go with zero here. If you feel the need to whine, please keep your crabbiness to the thread that has so offended you.

    Re: More complaining threads

    I will complain that there aren't enough options on the complaining poll in the complaining thread. Only four? What a lame poll.



    Also the answer to this question is 1-2. Just enough for two long threads of complaining to carry on unabated. I think 3-4 is too many and people will forget what they're complaining about.

    I would like this poll better if you had incorporated more abbreviations.

    Sans complaining = no message board activity.

    Re: More complaining threads

    Of course, if you've played mafia when Flag Guy runs the game, that would mean that the game thread and the ALL are complaint threads!

    Why not burn a buddy in the complaint thread?

    If you think you can handle that and still make an intelligent post, you just go ahead and try!

    Re: More complaining threads

    To make sure we hit the 5+ goal, I think I'm going to create the following tread titles at some point today:

    I'm tired.

    I don't wanna don't wanna go to work today.

    This isn't my house!?!?

    What?! No beer in office fridge?

    If I stop answering the phone, will they stop calling?

    Seriously. Poor attempt at both humor and sarcasm. This is when we need negative rep.

    Brave + not real bright = "I should start a new complaining thread."

    I've got a concept to try:
