Thought For the Day

soar-with-eagles-1024x683.jpg

By the way, I have a proposal for an experimental thread.

What do you think of the idea of an open chat thread that "floats" above all other content at the top of the page, with the exception of big breaking news (such as Scalia's death), with all new posts beneath that one?

It occurs to me that people want to just chat a lot of the time, and there's no point forcing such chat to occur in whatever the new topical post is.

I mean, can I trust you Morons to look underneath the floating open thread to find the actual new material being posted below it?

This isn't a plea to keep off-topic chat out of other threads -- I usually could not care less whether chat is on topic or off topic. (The only time it hurts to see off-topic chatter is when someone's put time and effort into a post to create original content -- keep that in mind before immediately going OT in guest blogger or weekend blogger's thread.)

I'm not proposing this as a thread-nannying thing, I just think maybe it's more convenient for people who just want to chat.

BTW: This is itself just an open thread.
