    Let's not jump on me about the whole thing. I was the one who answered the ORIGINAL question from the REAL topic starter, jerrylove56. I answered his question correctly, and then stated that the term makes no sense and then y'all turned it into a huge fiasco. I have no idea why it matters - it's not called Series Links on the interface, so why call it that? Call it what it is. I am done with this topic, except for answering whatever Rich asked me.

    In 2006 we had the tabs. One tab was "My Playlist" and the other was "Showcases".

    Series Links makes just as much sense as Nomad, Genie, GenieGo, Joey and Hopper.

    Actually you did start this thread ... by posting the following statement in a thread about FXX and then continuing to discuss and defend your disagreement with the term "Series Links" after the initial post.

    You said you hate the term because it makes no sense ... and discussion ensued. Now discussion continues ... away from the FXX thread that it was derailing. If you (or anyone else) have any questions or comments about moderation please send a PM.

    You said something that seemed derogatory about our forum. I highlighted it after you posted. I'm curious.

    I'm not getting into this anymore. People leave DBStalk because of crap like this.

    I did not initially bring up the term series links, nor do I need anyone - ESPECIALLY A MODERATOR - getting on me about it, or putting my name on a thread I did not start. If you can attack me in public, so can I. That's why I didn't PM you.

    Another poster asked a question about it and I answered it. Clearly, I did not start it. But I am ending it.

    Correct. Another poster did ask a question and you answered it. However, you also put out there that the phrase makes no sense. A whole discussion ensued as to why people thought it does/doesn't make sense. As the discussion about that phrase was not on topic with the original thread, all those posts were pulled into a new thread (this one). Since your post was the first one pulled out of the other thread, you were considered to be the thread starter for this thread.

    Honestly I think you guys are being a little hard on the "OP"

    If he wanted to start a whole topic on series links , he would have started his own thread , ON HIS OWN!
    I'm sorry but I don't agree his post should have been branched off to a new Thread.
    I feel that was just a means to get him attacked, and I don't go for that.

    Who really cares if he or she thinks series "LINKS" is dumb or not.

    IMO this whole thread is a personal attack!
