I was thinking very much the same thing, WHAT CRISPS HAVE YOU EVER EATEN, EVER? WHAT DOGS HAVE YOU OWNED? Tellmeaboutyourmother. WHAT LIGHT SWITCHES HAVE YOU FLICKED ON AND OFF AND ON AND OFF AND ON AND OFF?

Very odd...

They're certainly informative - it lets you know what choices certain individuals have made over the years, and an individual will be in a better position to help others regarding these product if they have owned it in the past.

RE: what have you owned

The clue is generally in the thread title- you could always try not reading them...

And how exactly are they a PITA? In what way are they impeding your life?

To be fair, the active topics page has about six "what" threads at the mo.  I don't usually go past the first page of active topics because it's usually 12 hours old by the second page, but if there is lots of filler it forces interesting content down.  A minor inconvenience.

 

More importantly, I forgot flaming hot monster munch and salt and vinegar kettle chips Smile

They are harmless and not as

They are harmless and not as boring or futile as threads on blind testing or cables.

And what about the "how many wive's (sic) and partners have you had" thread? I was half tempted to answer that one with "mind your own EDITED business"...

As near as I can tell that was the one that kicked the rest of them off.

I started it all off....sorry! embarassed

I did so in order to be a distraction from interminable cable threads....and unite people with a (supposedly) common interest.
