What’s the point in continuing a topic with over 19,000 replies and many months old. Seems juvenile to me.

It might have escaped you, but there is a social aspect to this site – and those threads in particular. I’m not a contributer to HPoYD or Stumpy’s ever evolving mega thread, but I do sometimes visit them.
Whatever happened to live and let live? And why do they bother you that much that you feel compelled to call them juvenile and pointless?
I wouldn’t want to kick a football in your back yard.

”juvenile and pointless”, perhaps in your eyes, but to each their own.

I am a “Stumpy Zone” inhabitant.There are many “regulars”, that I call friends, and we assemble and socialize on that thread. We discuss many a varied topic of the day. Just like any “social gathering” the conversation can and does go on many tangents. You say “juvenile”, I say light hearted. You say tom-A-to, I say tomato.

In your opinion it is “pointless” and you have every right to your opinion. I’m sorry that you feel friendship & camaraderie are pointless.

“point” who said there had to be a “point”?
Actually the “point” is we are friends geographically seperated that choose to use a blog site to stay in touch, share ideas, etc. We are a small community within the larger LJ community. All are welcome, however, attendance is not mandatory. If you don’t like us, you are free to go somewhere else.

“juvenile” my goal is life is to grow old not up.
