i've been tracking a few titanium members. some have an awful lot of posts and apparently a lot of time on their hands. for them it means just entertainment, bombarding newbies with silly remarks, getting off on attention, forever argueing about trivialities etc.I'm afraid to name names, otherwise they'll be after me. for me, to be a titanium member means the opposite of authority, unlike for instance, sites for instruments, in which there is a more serious approach, helping others with inquiries and so forth. fans are fickle and full of themselves, and want to be right.if we're to expect rain, i hope the flood comes and washes away the ....it's nice to have a voice, but do you HAVE to use it?

I think you'll find that when a serious Bob Dylan question is asked, the same members you speak of are the ones who can be the most helpful and informative. If in the time they've been here they've made some "friends" who they enjoy bantering with, I don't really see what's wrong with that.

If you're talking about the occasional hijacking of a thread so two people can go back and forth exchanging the same insults they exchange on every other thread...well...not everything's perfect.

Whereas, you seem swamped with matters of the utmost importance.

Over-using titanium can be habit forming and bad for your health.

No problem. Just go nuts in Word Association or Conversation using only Dylan Lyrics.

Conversation using only Dylan Lyrics should be done away with. It is the most annoying thread I've ever seen and, from what I understand, its the reason Bob doesn't come round here no more.

If an infinite number of titanium members had an infinite number of keyboards, would any of them come up with the lyrics to 'Wiggle Wiggle'?

well, there are an infinite number of combinations of keys. However, they all eventually DO morph into the lyrics of Wiggle.

in the end if you post often enough over a period of time you will eventually become Titanium . There is nothing wrong with that .
When I come online I check all posts I have made that have had a response made. Then if there is time I check to see if there is any new threads made that I would like to contribute to.
The whole process does not take me very long each day. However I have been here over 3 years now.
Members have come , members have gone . There is nothing wrong with posting a lot or hardly ever posting , we are all different.
To track the posts of several titanium members seems a wate of time , but whatever turns you on . We are all different.

Osmium is generally considered to be the densest known element.

Yes, I have been in there a couple of times and feel weird that I even contributed to it at all it seems meaningless to me as a Thread. :oops:

Conversation Using Dylan Lyrics is a fun thread , the challenge is to keep the conversation going as best you can . I t reqires a good knowledge of the lyrics to participate properly.
Word association is just the er version of an old game that has been played for years all over the world..
Both are fun threads and if people try to use them for building post counts they are in ER for the wrong reasons .
If you contribute to Er if and wen you can for long enough eventually you will have enough posts to reach T status.
