Toronto.Gal suggested we should have a loosey-goosey coffee lounge where we could come and safely discuss all manner of nonsense, post a gripe, make some friends, kick up your feet and just chat with your fellow CMFer on a casual, friendly basis. If you're having a rough time at work or at home, are afraid of actually being banned in the "ban the user" thread or just want to hang out, this is your thread.

We can discuss pretty much anything as long as we keep things friendly among us. This isn't the place to fight with your fellow CMFer. It is intended as a friendly, fun place.

All are welcome, no matter when you signed up.

Sounds like a great idea, but I thought that the entire "General Discussion" area was meant for just these sorts of conversations: anything goes. I wonder if the General Discussion area could just be renamed "Coffee Lounge" or "The Pub"?

Ah, I forgot about that! Coffee Lounge or Tea Room, then.

Now, you ought to know that in the grand hierarchy of Internet Sins, creating a "General Discussion" thread within a "General Discussion" area is actually several orders of magnitude worse than...quoting. ;)

Alright Brad, maybe after market hours you can order a drink. :D

This is an open discussion thread, meaning that you can write about any topic without having to create a thread......like dropping in for a chat so to speak.

TRM, would you like to be the moderator of this thread? :)

Echo, I don't watch a lot of tv and right now I'm missing DWTS, but I have replaced it with 'SYTYCD', those are the only reality shows I watch. The Canadian version is pretty good too btw.

Have to go, have a good day all.

my 2 crumbs:

Coffee Lounge or The Pub sound good to me.

Tea Room is too strait-laced. And i drink a lot of tea myself. Don't all coffee lounges serve tea ?

also it's a good suggestion, to rename the entire division. Maybe should keep a soupçon of general discussion, though. Maybe something like Coffee Lounge: General Discussion or Join the General Discussion in The Pub.

don't know about TRM as moderator, though. He's so strict. How about he campaigns for the position, & promises to lighten up, plus a couple other candidates, & then we vote.

do we have a young NDP candidate stepping forward ? remember, no need to speak french.

Or we could split the General Discussion area into three sections:

The Pontificatorium (for those who wish to make pronouncements and show off their expertise)

The Degustatorium (for the Recipes to Trade by thread)

The Solarium (for those who want to lounge and chat idly in the sun).

Well so nice to drop into the coffee bar. I'll have a large cup straight black please. Hmm now where to sit and who to talk to????

Humble please tell us about the bird.
And of which Zylon, it is my belief that you have to have one, to flip it. Have you heard Foster the People's new song - Pumped up Kicks? My fav right now.

avatar is a print of kenojuak. She was one of the original cape dorset artists; her most famous print is the owl with the magnificent tail.

kenojuak is still alive, in her late 80s now, a greatly-honoured & greatly-loved canadian artist.

royal i take it all back, i just checked (didn't before, so very sorry) & you are the OP who started this thread.

maybe an associate youth moderator in addition to yourself, though ? Somebody posted that there seem to be an increasing number of young people joining this forum. So we need to listen to them ...

Everyone (except spammers) is welcome to post in this thread. No moderation needed. At least I don't think so?? All of us here are just goofing around. No need to take anything back. We're all friends hanging out and enjoying each other's company here, rules are at a minimum. It was really TO's idea (and a good one at that).

It's just a place for all of us to chill. :)

TRM has my vote if he promises special tax credits for CMF posters between the ages of 25 and 55.

Not sure I like the idea of non-alcoholic beverages only though. That's far too limiting. Especially today, when Cancucks fans may want to drown out their sorrows.
