My next pet peeve is the bizarre array of meaningless or misleading titles that are used on this forum. Here's a few gems:

New to RVing. Help!!!

Batteries??

Folks that are newcomers to RVs and especially the non-technical types have a difficult time trying to come up with a meaningful title for a thread. They also have a problem describing what the "what-ya-ma-callit" does.

I enjoy helping the new folks and try to get them on the same wave length that we operate. Remember that every one was a beginner at some point.

Well since you said "help my fridge won't explode" I assume you wish to make your fridge explode

You will need

Some C-4, half an ounce should do

Some wires

Remove the interior light, hook wires to where it used to be, stick other end of wires in C-4, put in fridge, close door and turn on fridge, next time you open door BOOM, it will explode... With luck they will find enough of your to bury

NOTE: DO NOT TRY THIS

Note 2: I left one thing out

I read your post and thought it could also solve my problem. I hate when someone else uses the toilet in our Coach. I thought I could also set up our toilet to explode. I purchased the reccomended supplies and I wired the explosives to the seat so the next person that used it would set off the explosion.

With my advancing age and possible Dementia, I waited a while and wouldn't you know it, I was the next person to use the toilet.

Well, as you can see from my Avitar the results were not pretty. I thought I might have mis-read your post and made an error, so I went back and read it again. I see that at the end of your post you placed a note "DO NOT TRY THIS".

Might I suggest that in the future, you place such notes at the beginning of the post rather than the end. Just for those oif us that never read to the end of any post.

Thanking you in advance!

Interesting, how the person complaining about bad, improper, nondescript, and misleading titles, post's just such a title.
Congrats Jack... Thats like I might do.

What a bewildering post.
Everyone of those post titles makes good topic sense to me.
Dry humour is without comparison even when its a little wet i guess.

{Dry humor} Isn't that what you add to the fuel tank to keep the moisture in check???

As they say, if you have to explain it...you've already blown it. I'll try to keep the next one a little more mainstream. I think I need a drink

Jim, I had no idea the amount of work and trouble you went to just to change your avatar for me! Now I'm really impressed! Thank you VERY much.
