Although certainly a curmudgeon, I've come to Ricochet for a more civil dialogue.
I was an early adopter at Hot Air and still enjoy it there. However, as the site grew, as with many others, it is difficult to make it through some threads without thinking you're watching an episode of Jerry Springer.
This has led me to create Eeyore's Postulate (possibly related to Godwin's Law)
“Every comment in a thread increases by 1% the probability that the thread will contain a flame war.”
25 comments – a 25% chance of a flame war
50 comments – a 50% chance of a flame war
200 comments – If you can't do the f******* math on that, crawl back down into your Mommy's basement and take all the rest of the a$$hat comments you've made on this thread, and die like all the rest of you Rethuglicans should have long ago!!!!11!11!!
(well, that's a slight exaggeration for Hot Air – that would have brought out the banhammer)
See...it just happens.
So, thanks, Peter and Rob, for the Ricochet C of C.
