I'm not talking about the issue number, I'm talking about the number at the end of the URL; 1635327 in this thread's case. If you just swapped out the profile/impurestcheese/blog section with forums/off-topic-5/, you would get the link as it is displayed o the forum page.
It is incredibly irritating to see the entire forum swarmed with this stuff, and getting passive-aggressive over the content of other threads doesn't change that.
Ooooo! Not "incredibly irritating!" Please! Anything but that! Again, I have now been done for over 35 minutes. Also... I didn't think my aggression was all that passive. I thought I was pretty outright about my disdain for most of the Off-Topic threads. Quit whining and move on. Another 30 minutes, and most of them will be off of the front page.
Regardless of how much you look down on the other threads, try not to ignore the fact that there was a more intelligent and efficient way for you to go about this. Seriously. Take a second and stop and think about this before your fire off another "ive been done!" "these threads are more important" holier-than-thou reply.
Your personal opinion that the quality of these threads make them more deserving of a spot at the top of the forum, or the quality of the other threads make them unimportant in comparison to your endeavor, is meaningless when you focus that this controversy ultimately stems from you choosing not to use your internet forum common sense to find the easiest way to go about this....lol
