    1. They're boring.

    2. It aims at being clever but fails.

    3. They're annoying.

    4. Not that many posters post in them.

    5. This thread is a prime example.

    I too once looked askance at spinoff threads and those who'd start them. Then one drunken night I tried it..... Now I consider it an Artform. It's like the "Call And Response" in Ole Negro Spirituals and Cotton Picking Songs :grad:

    I wonder what was the most successful spinoff thread ever? And have any spinoffs eclipsed the original thread? Someone get on that please....

    Too loud, too messy. I buy Super Glue by the gallon; works really good, but be sure and get the fast drying kind :up:
