Im not sure where to put this, so Ill put it here since it involves magic history of sorts. Asking this question has its risks, not the least of which is that this thread might devolve into negativity, sarcasm, personal attacks, etc. But this board has been on for some time now, and there have been some very memorable threads, be they good, bad, profound, ugly, historically important, funny, silly, idiotic, etc.
Some time ago there was a thread on the ephemeral nature of internet sites and board postings. That got me thinking about preserving (mostly great) threads. So Ive been archiving some of the threads here, not only for personal reference down the road, but just in case the worst happens and they get lost forever on the internet. The vast majority of the threads Ive saved have been ones with good, intelligent exchanges, packed with information or insightful comments. But Ive also saved a few real dogs, because they are either very funny or unbelievably dumb. This could be a memorable thread itself if a decent number of folks contribute and could document the best of the best and worst of the worst there are many folks here who are very perceptive and have great memories!
What are your nominations for most memorable threads on Genii Forum, and why? In an effort to keep this thread going and not have it shut down, Id only ask that we try and stick to the nominations and not (re)debate the nature of the topics themselves. Itd be nice if this thread turned into a relatively focused list of memorable threads for folks to peruse later on, a thread without much ancillary side debate.
Ill start by nominating one thread which already has been acknowledged as a great thread, the one on Erdnase (thanks to mrmagik for starting it), here: http://geniimagazine.com/forum/cgi-bin/ ... 1;t=000947
And for one of the dumbest threads, Ill nominate the one on The Art of Modern Conjuring

Heres hoping there are some good responses and little rancor.
