I am confident that TMP will get the kind of posters it deserves.

I guess with a name like Sparker you have to be up there in brightness.

Who has it lost?

Will this damn war in Vietnam never end?

Actually, I'd have gone for a more apposite Halberstam title:

'The Making of a Quagmire'.

All of this has the feel of junkies trying in vain to threaten their dealer.

"Ooh, yer making me mad! If you don't stop, I'm gonna… I'm gonna… Um, I'm gonna cut back… soon, maybe… a little. Yeah! So, you better do as I say, cuz… Umm… Dude!"

Y'know, a friend told me that if you cook coyote right, it tastes just like dog.

Sysiphus01 Aug 2011 3:19 p.m. PST

The true value of TMP is all the different parts/ideas/opinions.

TMP is a team sport.

Ironwolf01 Aug 2011 3:20 p.m. PST

you should add an option for the poll, who are these people that are suppose to be TMP's best and brightest??? lol and my favorite option on a poll, Who cares?

Sundance01 Aug 2011 3:37 p.m. PST

Zippy, so what does dog taste like?

CPT Jake01 Aug 2011 3:44 p.m. PST

Well seasoned coyote of course.

I once had an Iron Maiden poster that glowed in the dark and made my little brother too scared to sleep in our room.

Have the napoleonics experts packed up their yurt and moved to greener pastures ?

I'm stil here, and as dumb as ever.

Sadly, no. If only…

huh? What???

Its been scientifically proven that a great haze has lifted over TMP allowing the brightest to shine through cleaerer than ever…

Personal logo Murphy Sponsoring Member of TMP01 Aug 2011 7:35 p.m. PST

I am confident that TMP will get the kind of posters it deserves.

Yes, including those that never let historical data stand in the way of their point of view…

Oh wait, you were saying???

The value of TMP to me is multi-genre posts all in one page. TTGN has better news, but lacks the forums. Many other sites have better forums, but not all in one place. I think the quality of TMP has declined some, and Bill has specifically contributed to the decline, but it's still pretty good due to the aggregation of sources. But, my RSS reader's feed is getting better and better…

rmcaras Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2011 2:51 a.m. PST

why?

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2011 2:58 a.m. PST

No, Im still here. Just busy lately

;-)

Klebert L Hall02 Aug 2011 3:39 a.m. PST

We can't accurately judge until TMP eventually fades from history, and we can evaluate all of the posters ever for quality.

The brightest and best posters might not even have joined, yet.

You shouldn't love a lamp…that's just wrong. And potentially dangerous if it is plugged in.

Norman D Landings02 Aug 2011 4:59 a.m. PST

I read the thread title, and thought I ought to post for reasons of comedic juxtaposition…

Yea. I miss Big Mean Elf… JUST KIDDING!

wrgmr102 Aug 2011 8:18 a.m. PST

Still posting…..sometimes. In particular, when I need a uniform color clarification.

religon02 Aug 2011 9:31 a.m. PST

I don't think the brightest are leaving, they are just choosing to share more of their content elsewhere. (But, I also notice site hits are considerably up since last year. Perhaps the site is feeling a TMZ effect.)

nebeltex02 Aug 2011 11:55 a.m. PST

maybe…. do any of you guys know who these "best and brightest" are?

aecurtis Fezian02 Aug 2011 12:07 p.m. PST

So where is Mericanach these days? Donald (DRD) Hauser?

Grand Duke Natokina02 Aug 2011 1:19 p.m. PST

YES, KYOTE BLUE, IT IS LOSING A LOT OF ITS BEST POSTERS.

Andrew May102 Aug 2011 1:27 p.m. PST

Used to spend all my time here. Now I divide between here and frothers after all the crap that flew around last year. I think lots of people have been pushed away by the way things are going. Shame.

RazorMind02 Aug 2011 3:47 p.m. PST

and this is worse than Frothers?

Goldwyrm02 Aug 2011 6:50 p.m. PST

TMP is what it is.

I've been participating more on the Frothers forum than here for some time now. I've also stopped drinking over carbonated high fructose corn syrup soda products in favor of unsweetened iced tea. YMMV.

Neotacha02 Aug 2011 7:04 p.m. PST

A lot of the names I recognized and read with pleasure are either entirely gone, or post so rarely it is a treat to see them come up again.

Ironwolf03 Aug 2011 4:51 a.m. PST

I think there was a group of posters who told each other they were the back bone of TMP. Now the other 90% of the posters on TMP have no clue who they were. 5% realized something was different but not sure what it was. the other 5% are still telling each other how bad TMP has become since they stopped posting on there. lol

Ivan the Reasonable03 Aug 2011 7:32 a.m. PST

No.

Thank God there's you and others of your ilk to fill the breach then, eh?

How do you copy and quote what someone said above so that it appears in the separate white box above your post? It seems everyone is doing it, so I'd like to jump on the bandwagon…

Thanks kindly.
