What can I say to keep this thread alive? Yes I agree. In full.

Listen, seriously... have any of you ever seen a "Is Slackware Dead" thread anywhere that didn't run into multiple pages? I've seen some that went on for months. After 15 years of running across these at numerous forums, USENET newsgroups, IRCs, etc. I've just learned to appreciate the humorous aspect of them. This one in particular has been good for couple LOLs so far.

Which might lead one to wonder what would happen with a "Slackware is Alive!" thread. (Queue the scene from Young Frankenstein or the original Frankenstein.

To be fair, if you look at Post 6 you will see an apology, so it looks like an innocent question. So what follows is the usual rather rambling discussions these type threads turn into

There's a whole range of topics that have this kind of effect on people. The mods have very sensibly coralled religion into one megathread and Windows v. Linux into another. I once suggested a third for discussions of a certain init system but the request was turned down on the grounds that it would only encourage the kind of behaviour I wanted to isolate.

All the same, if I ran this site, I would have a special flame forum for topics of this kind and forbid them in any of the other forums.

Man! You're no fun. There is potential here for another 10 or 12 pages of replies, particularly if someone delves into Hazel's "...discussions of a certain init system..." topic. HA!
