Yes but it's a stable orbit.

To bring the level of discourse up, lets
limit posting to rhyming couplets

That could work, or it could not.
Could help a little, could help a lot.

This plan, while new, still feels quite trite
Won't stand a chance 'gainst trollers' might.

It would work for a while till there came a time
when no one would agree on the rhyme of the crime.

I was thinking of suggesting a different tack.
But then I'd have committed the sin of threadjack.

Couplet's sure are nice
Are other styles allowed too?
Poems don't have to rhyme

i was curious about the opinions that forons and putative moderators had about this and i was satisfied with the response in the end, though i should say to the flooder, who apparently switches screen names every so often for reasons that may not be clear at first blush:

hey hey, my bottom-feeding pervy foron friend, the setting of the sun does not need to be yer enemy -- and it is, no doubt about it -- they have this efficacious stuff called valproic acid that does wonders when mixed with lorazepam late in the day . . .

so most of the flooding does make sense and i even agree with about 70 per cent of it -- most of it, but then the poster goes off the rails and even outed him/herself as a sock puppeteer by responding to a thread about it in the wrong screen name . . . it's really not right . . . we shouldn't laugh at folks like that i agree . . . well, most of the time . . .
