bad ideas don't stand a chance.
October 8th, 2007 -- BREAKING NEWS -- Expressing your actual opinions is a no no.
August 29th, 2007 -- We'll soon be offering great prizes for the best bickerfest essays, so keep watching this space for details.
August 16th, 2007 -- It's just a joke, so please don't get the wrong idea because there is a topic with a very SEXUAL title. It was meant to cause some controversy in order to bring in some conflict (and new subscribers) for the then current bickerfest beta-crew to battle with -- because one of them was complaining about the place being too peaceful.
Also, please note that the bickerfest forum is a work in progress (only a few weeks old and still under development) so you are one of the first fifty people or so to subscribe.
Therefore, right now, there still may be a lot of discussion about bickerfest itself -- which, if (by some remarkably unlikely chance, heh) you find THAT boring (go figure), well, you have the most fortunate option of being able to completely ignore all of those subjects and starting your very own, totally non-boring, non-bickerfest-related topics.
You haven't even taken off your boots yet.
And we're already pressuring you to perform for us.
But seriously, just sit back, relax, and enjoy all of the entertaining and educational bickering!
It'll be here shortly.
So you need not participate at all.
You can just sit comfortably in the audience with your popcorn and favorite beverage.
BTW: If you feel there were too many commas in the above paragraphs?
Complain to the pedantic management.

P.S. Most of that stuff written above is what we in the marketing business call "Lowering Expectations". Unfortunately, that strategy usually only works for politicians -- for some odd reason.
