Thanks, guys.

And, yes, Maria, the whole thing is off-putting. I'm sorry for the role I played in that for you.

Can you guys either change the name of CG's thread to something innocuous or start a new one? It's very disturbing to me to see someone be forced to take credit for a title they don't agree with. Even if he is banned.

It's just not right.

I have changed the title to "Trump." I included a note in large letters in the original post that this was not the title that CG selected. I would like to lock this thread now and have inky, preferably, start a new one with whatever title she would prefer.

Sure thing!

And the thread split was a good idea, I think.

Yes, I think that was the best solution. Though I have very little sympathy for CG - from what I saw, he abandoned the thread for months, then came back and got possessive about the title. He could have acted like an adult - looked in here to see why the name change, and discussed his concerns about the new title. I'm sure everyone would have been reasonable and tried to accommodate him if he had.

Anyway, I thought I should re-post my recent comment about the split here, in case it got lost in the thread:
Quote:
btw, it might make more sense to split this thread after the early discussions of the election. Right now, there are some posts on the first page that don't make a lot of sense because they flow from the previous discussion. What about starting with my post on the second page of this thread, which starts:

Quote:
Did anyone see this, um, event? The only word that seems to suit it is "fiasco." Or perhaps "circus"?

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2 ... production

If it's too much bother to change the position of the split, feel free to ignore me. :) The discussion of the election itself and what part racism played in it (which CG started), is long past - leaving part of it in the new thread is unlikely to make any difference unless someone starts reading the threads for the first time.

The "Merge" thingy doesn't seem to work. I split the new thread from the post you suggested, but when I tried to merge the other two threads, it didn't work, or anyway didn't do what the form said it would do. So now we have three trumply threads. Um - yay?

The most recent thread I just gave a name of "Temp Title", so you can name it whatever you think appropriate.

:D Yikes, I'm not sure we want Trump proliferating.

I tried to rename the title, but it doesn't look like I actually have authorship of the thread - clicking on the thread title, etc. gets me nowhere. Sorry!

What I was going to do was name the new thread "You've Been Trumped.v2" then let you delete the old thread.

Oh, I wouldn't want to delete the old thread - that would mean losing posts.

I'm surprised that it won't let you edit the thread title. Can't you edit the first post in the thread? If so, you should also be able to edit the contents in the title field.

Okay, I merged the two threads, thanks to help from Prim over on HoF.

Let me know if you still can't edit the title of the new thread, based on the instructions above...

Thanks, Jude, and sorry. I didn't realize it would be that much of a nuisance to change the position of the split.

Yes, I was able to change the title. I was trying to do things in a hurry on Friday and forgot where/how to do it.

Sure - let's just edit in a scathing review of the website she links to :devil:
