    What is the threshold for a thread split?

    so the rule is 3 posts to a topic causes its own thread?

    Post #2.

    Another rule: Maister must enjoy the topic.

    Some of it depends on his mood.

    According to the haiku chat thread, Maister is stuck at the front desk. You know what that means, eh?

    Moderator note:
    Too late, Missy! Split from RTDNTOTO. That'll teach you!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Had to see this one coming
    Never tempt Maister

    youtube is blocked at work, but I'll bet you dollars to donuts it's a link to a cartoon with Marvin Martian.

    I had the same thought. Speaking of Marvin the Martian I wish I had an "ACME ULTIMATUM DISPATCHER" like he does. I'm trying to tempt you into a misstep, like splitting a thread from your own thread about thread splitting.....

    You're too cagey for that, aren't you? Dammit. I'll be back with better ammo.

    It's not the tempting
    That brings unhappy ending
    It's Maister baiting

    I'm campaigning to bring the word "Randomality" into wide, unspeakable wide usage. Please if you have it in your heart to support me in this, I would greatly appreciate it. Carry on.

    PS, we can't really pass up the chance to hopelessly re-randomize a thread that Maister split trying to make it more specific. It's just not in our nature.
