Cross Thread Points

In the name of the brotherhood, professionalism, wokeness, and basic human civility, it is my heartfelt belief that we need to commission a QP Working Group to establish a recognized, standardized, and legitimized method for awarding cross thread point.

It is a moral imperative !!!

My (moral) compass is broken brother can you spare me one?

It was about this time last year that the needle just started spinning and it hasn’t stopped since…

I’ve been lost before and didn’t realize how good I’ve had it until now.

Agree, the forum being the matrix, a system based in equity rewarding the poster for the work he individually puts in. Perhaps a system based on an Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branch? Wait, no that makes to much sense...

and apparently that system too can be corruptible by the malcontents...

Nah, we are just in the Bermuda Triangle and the Twilight Zone at the same time...

whoa...whoa...whoa: Ya'll just better check your cis-gendered, patriarchal, non-binary rush of identifying metrics in your privileged world-view. We're going to need colors, genders, spirit animals, anime, floating identities, and woke world-views in our intersectionality of relevance.

We're going to have to have some sort of value-system (which - of course - we'll later deny as valuing something entails judgment), as to what you hold near-and-dear. Climate change? Warmal Globing? Cultural appropriation? eating Mexican food on Cinco De Mayo day? Do you observe Columbus Day? What about July 4th? Thoughts on President's day...?? How about National hamburger day? Can a cow be your spirit animal..? If so...what about a mosquito? Thoughts on changing the laws on why we park on driveways and drive on parkways?

These are all very important topics that require government grants, committees, budgets, a diverse and equitable review committee, more government grants, a bigger budget, vehicles, facilities, an appeal committee of more diverse, much-more-highly-budgeted "facilitators," etc.

This isn't something you just throw together. I can probably make myself available for this incredibly important public service at half my normal rate of $1.2 million a year. I'll do it for $600K per annum.....after all, I'm a "giver" and it's for the children.

Good points jim we need a committee to see who is qualified for cross thread posting.

I will take a knee my post count is high enough to be considered privileged poster
Also the fact I have QP under my name shows the privilege.
