The more I think about it the more I think W.BalBoos has a really good point. We are all slowly drifting into one poster.

As time has gone on my postings have slowly evolved to fit in with the site norm. For example the vulgarity of my humour posts has lessened compared to when I first joined, to fit in with the general accepted standard of the site. Also traditions that I didn't necessarily find amusing when I first joined, like the pun runs for example, I now find myself participating in and sometimes even initiating them myself.

So if we assume that everybody else are slowly evolving their postings too, and those that don't conform are already voted off the site (or rejected by the organism), then at some time in the future we are all going to amalgamate into one giant Codeproject poster monster jellyfish organism. I can already think of numerous times recently where I have posted the same thing as another user (mainly Elston). So the Nuclei has already been created and we are just going to suck more and more of you in at an exponential rate.

So soon there will be no need to post, as we will all know what is to be posted, so actually posting it will just be a waste of data storage capacity. Whatsmore, features like the CCC will become redundant as people will be able to post the answer before Dave has posted the question.

So the next question is what do we do with this monster we are creating? World Internet Domination? And whose going to tell Chris what has inadvertently happened to us?
