Or let it live to be 100... pages.

Can I be here when you kill it, Paul? Can we all take turns smashing it to little bits?

Angela pleaded that I wait until it got to 100 pages, but I've learned that I'm not that patient.

Could you make me an honorary bartender for the few milliseconds it would take to press delete?

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.

I need a reason?

How about: It's fouling the formatting of the big-list-o-topics for MD.

At least, it would help us to increment the number of posts.

Ah well.. Some one finally fixed the wrapping problem in that thread.
Please Don't kill it. Is the javaranch database running out of space or WHAT ?

There has been some internal discussion on this, and the result is that for the time being the thread stays open. It won't be limited until it's 5 years old, or 100 pages long, or some such limit. Unless we find that the 100th page actually does break something, in which case it would meet a very sudden death.

Angela begged. Jim and EFH came to her rescue and changed UBB.

I think it was more of a plea than a beg ... but I'm glad it worked
