    Default All-purpose news and politics thread: Two Steps Beyond!(Part II)

    At Matt's suggestion...

    There is a notion that rather large threads may contribute to server load. As such, we are experimenting with closing existing threads to see if it helps matters.
    Feel free to start a new thread on the same topic.

    "Three" felt a little presumptuous.

    Edit: For what it's worth on the "Troubleshooting" end, I just got that "Requires That You Wait 30 Seconds..." message when I posted this one.

    Two steps part 2?

    That's about as bad as when there was a sequel to the prequel of The Conjuring.

    Can't you do anything right, #30? What exactly do we pay you for? And when is the last time you got us any good pictures of Spider-Man?

    You might want to put a little of that "Pointless Grumble" time into "Figure Our How Not To Post Everything Twice" time.

    Two II must be a result of the double posting problem.

    Any chances this edition will be a less-depressing read?

    That's in Mueller's hands, and in those of mid term voters.

    It might be just arbitrary, but I thought it was so cool that we were about to reach 7000 pages in the original thread.

    #30 was trying too hard in naming this thread. Though all the double posts might make it an appropriate title.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Is Trump still President? If so, no it won't be.

    Awww, the thread should have had the subtitle of Electric Boogaloo.

    I'm not an admin, but if server loading is an issue, maybe we should enforce page limits for threads to be around... I dunno, 1000 pages or less?

    Anyway, on topic, I'm bringing up Antonio F. Branco again just because due to the fact that Trump Worshippers use Jew Kaepernick to defend Fearless Leader against that evil socialist LeBron James.

    Yeah, the "What are you listening to" and the "Are you reading bible" thread are respectively over 10,000 posts and over 7,000 posts. So they need to be locked as well as the closed threads that barely reached over 3,000 posts in the Film forum.

    In addition both the greatest panels and greatest covers threads have too many pictures that take time for my computer to load. I wonder if that is also causing a server overload?
