Default Time to shut this down?

Jack's NA is a toolbag, and this thread is just going in circles. I'd like to see it shutdown, and am curious to see how he'd proceed.

Sounds like a good idea to me. He can make a new thread with more clear intentions and less attitude if hes really interested in getting input

As I said in the thread, it's winter and it gives us something to do. When it winds down on it's own, don't lock it, just delete it completely and don't even mention it.

If he comes back with a hard on, then just ban him.

I have no problem with controversial threads, and a little back and forth bitching, but nothing is being accomplished. He pops in every 10 or 15 posts, says 'you guys are idiots', and that's it.

Oh, and nice misspelling on this thread title eh? It was an accident, I promise.

I think I'm going to make a thread about how this thread needs to be closed. It's obviously not going anywhere.

I guess we could always "not" click on threads we don't like.

I think this is a good idea we should start a tread with a poll and have the gayest threads of the week voted on and then deleted.

If we don't click them then how would we know if we like them or not...

Generally, If I read a thread and it's BS, I don't continue to click on it and then bitch about it.
