Understood, Sys. But The more you (meaning the mysterious "you" not you specifically) outsource anything of meaning, the Coffee Shop will become more and more meaningless. I think that this is probably the reason for it becoming such a strange place to begin with, though. If you have Bowie news in one forum, opinions in another, fan artwork somewhere else, and collectables in yet another place, the only thing left for the coffee shop is mostly the crap that doesn't fit anywhere else.
Don't get me wrong, I love the chaotic environment there, but the more people are willing to see it as the slum of TW, where not a thing of value exists or where what little value is crapped on, the more that will become a self-fulfilling prophesy.
It's parenting 101, man. Tell a kid he's a fuck up who is undeserving of "adult conversations" and that's exactly what he'll grow up to be.
