    All within this week:

    3 Threads started for "Hi I'm new"
    3 Threads for "The New RJ colors"
    3 Threads for "Hot listing Etiquette"
    3 Threads for "I'm 18 and haven't have sex yet"
    3 Threads for "I'm lonely"
    3 Threads for "Show me your art"
    3 Threads for "Let's hear your music"
    3 Threads for "Let's talk about Racism"

    There were so many threads I wanted to contribute to but they disappeared under an endless list of topics because so many people wanted to start their own thread to bring attention to themselves.

    (Nothing wrong with seeking attention though)

    Does not everyone check to see if that topic is already going? It's in plain sight.

    Also - if I start a thread that no one is interested in, I delete it to clean up the board. Why leave an advertisement for a flop?

    I'm not ranting. Just pointing it out.
    Love you guys!

    Kidding. Really.

    I predicted someone would make that joke and it would probably be *you*. See? I'm getting to know you guys.

    I only started one thread last week, about whether dogs can love, and it led to flame wars and someone even closed his account over it... In other words, it was typical...icon_confused.gif

    I dont feel as if there should be a limit.... people should be free to post a new topic of their choosing.

    If people didnt start new threads this place would be fucking boring.

    There were at least six threads on the new RJ colors - but who's counting.

    Yes, people can do as they please but you've missed my point. (not you, eager)
    You responded to what I said right *here*, right? You didn't start another thread. Do you realize how many people do that? Many good threads get pushed out of site, never to seen again.

    I know! That was so mental. I felt bad for you and posted my story.

    In RJ you can start an innocent thread with...

    "Does any one know a good gay cruise I can go on?"
    ...and the next post will be...
    "Why bother, you ugly fuck? No one will ever love you."
    ...and the next post will be...
    "I'm having trouble with my computer. Who can help?"

    I've never been in a group before where the freedom of speech misconception is 100 times more important than being civil or even making sense.

    Without active moderation, the forums pretty much run wild. Not much you can really do.

    I think it's about time to start a thread asking why there isn't an RJ app.

    This is true. All I'm trying to do is make a point and maybe some people will get the small sense of it for all of us.

    Only 3? Maybe I'm just reading the same ones over and over, but I feel like I see a lot more than that.

    You're right.
    I understated it so I could write "Three's not the charm."
    Got me!

    Iceblink (but I wont blink when I look at your body) saidI think it's about time to start a thread asking why there isn't an RJ app.

    I've had my smartphone for a year now and I don't even understsnd what an ap is. I know you download it. I know it helps. But if RJ had an app, what would it do?

    (I'm posting an awful lot here)

    I agree ... what difference does it make, anyway, the cream rises to the top and the rest just sink.

    Your phone probably already had facebook as an app when you got it, so look at how you use facebook as an app and then search for it on your phone and open it up as a link. You'll see it's much easier to use as an app on your phone than it is a web page. An app would make rj easier to use.

    But the reason I brought this up was because this subject of an RJ app must have come up a hundred times here and almost every time the OP is acting as if they were the first to come up with the idea.

    Geez. You have so missed the point. You don't have to agree but get the point.
