Would it be possible to have all the "global warming" threads merged into one, like the US election thread?
In essence, they all say the same thing and it's a bit tiresome to come in and find Today's posts full of the same thing, throughout a number of different threads.
Are you suggesting that the person that started these particular threads should be given a jolly good birching and then be thrown into the cold
An excellent idea, in my humble opinion!
No, I was making a serious suggestion.
I'm with you Janet, keeping the same topic posts all together can only result in a better debate

That would narrow down Scholar's chances for a "Wasted Bandwidth of the Week" Award, however.

Would it be possible to keep this on topic till one of the mods responds?
I can't merge them into one, the time/date stamp on posts would make the thread intelligable.
However you could ask members to post under one topic, perhaps even start a thread as such.
I think that DW's suggestion is valid. If, however we started to say "you must only post about this subject in this thread and that subject, there. I think we'd lose some of the dynamic that is KarlsForums. I agree, that the same topic, rehashed does get tiresome, but then, if we consolidated them all, RW would need to find another job for his monkey!
Scholar, would you mind posting them all in the same thread? This is a request from another member, rather than a demand from one of the mods.
My opinion is,
If a long-standing member chooses to show interest in a subject, ie: Global Warming then I can't see a problem in starting threads about it.
It is a VERY important subject and our future generations may indeed need to realise that every attempt to hault or slow down the effects of global warming is important - hence there being so many new articles on the subject. Also, different angles on dealing with it and also varying opinions on the subject from politicians and scientists etc.. etc..
SO..it needs addressing!
I must admit that if I wasn't interested, I would just ignore the threads and post in other threads that interest in me - or start some (even if a monkey appears - from time to time ) as I've noticed.....
It is better to ignore a thread or threads you don't wish to partake in - rather than complain about it.
I am not crazy about discussing the subject of Global Warming personally, but I appreciate someone making the effort to inform us of what is happening.
It's a warning to all
End of speech.....
Ah - so one long standing member's view is more important than another (longer standing) member's? Good to know.
I wasn't complaining about the threads.
I was asking that rather than having many threads, we have one thread in which the discussion can continue.
Oddly enough, I know about posting other threads - if you bother to look back through the archives, you will see me suggesting the same thing for a number of years here.
However, not everyone has time to post a lot of threads all the time. My job takes me away from home fairly frequently and keeps me rather busy. I post what I can. I really don't need a lesson on how to use the forums, thanks all the same.
What an excellent rule that is!
Variety is the spice of life, isn't it TC4W?
Hurry up and post a reply, TC4W, otherwise you risk getting a jolly good tawsing!

Personally, this thread is far more interesting than Global Warming anyway! As for your defence of the many "varied" aspects of the debate, Scholar, in reality, they are all variations on a theme, like the political thread. It's all he says this and she says that, while they don't believe either and propose the other, then there's the Ostrich who couldn't care a fig about the other stuff and just sticks his head in the sand.
