I don't know about the rest of the internet but in the context of the Files I think it means posting a link with zero commentary as to said link's contents.
Pisses me off when I open a thread to find only a link I'm now obligated to watch to find out WTF OP is talking about.

No doubt this threads needs more undrrstandin, this will help.

Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man

Walking with his legs spread apart.

He was stiff-legged and walking slowly.

One student said to his friend:

"I'm sure that poor old man has Peltry Syndrome.

Those people walk just like that."

The other student says:

"No, I don't think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome.

He walks slowly and his legs are apart, just as we learned in class."

Since they couldn't agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him

And one of the students said to him,

"We're medical students and couldn't help

But notice the way you walk, but we couldn't agree on the syndrome you might have..

Could you tell us what it is?"

The old man said,

"I'll tell you, but first you tell me what you two fine medical students think."

The first student said, "I think it's Peltry Syndrome."

The old man said, "You thought - but you are wrong."

The other student said, "I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome."

The old man said, "You thought - but you are wrong."

So they asked him, "Well, old timer, what do you have?"

The old man said, "Well, I thought it was GAS - but I was wrong, too!"

Reminds me of this old joke, told here by Sammy Allred of the Geezinslaws:

heavily armed, easily pissed.

Easier yet, just look at who started the topic and how many other topics they have started in the last hour.

I don't bother opening.

Interesting.

I am a member of many other gun forums, but seldom go to others unless looking for more specific info on that specific "platform" (yeah, I said it )

With the possible exception of the 1919, there is very dang little gun info I personally seek that I can't find a good source of expertise for right here.

PS - and I have found great 1919 info here too

I am most grateful for you all who have "held your mud."

Generally, if you are goint to shit, its just good manners to do it in one designated place.

I'm not trying to be a dick about it. Hell if you want to have your own "news" thread, and you REALLY BELIEVE people want to click on your naked links, start yourself a thread. Call your thread "BigBalls' Daily Spew" or some such. And have at it. Just keep it in one thread. I don't mind. I'm not going to look at your daily spew myself. But, somebody might get a kick out of it.

My issue is with seeing eleventeen bare-ass-link threads popping up as though you shut-ins are having a thread-starting battle. That is what I call "link-shitting."

Shit in your own bathroom or hole in the ground.

Don't shit all over the house and the front porch.

Your cooperation is appreciated.

And FYI, you KNOW your thread will get shit-on by others. So don't bitch about it if it happens.

Easy to call some of us "Shut Ins" during the Dead of Winter when you live way down SOUTH
Up here you would be a meatsicle by morning

Look, I have been without a working furnace for close to two weeks while complete idiots are searching for parts to repair my system. I just refuse to let this slight mechanical failure be something used to force me into a whole new furnace system. Need be I'll Rube Goldberg it all but would rather not.

Right now it's -13 and falling outside
still 55 inside but will drop probably 10 degrees by morning
and that's with NO Furnace

"shut ins"
as opposed to what ?

Ruth Ann and Lynn they wear them cut off britches and those skinny little halters
And they're second cousins to me
Man I don't care I want to get between 'em
With a great big ol' hard on like a old bois d' arc fence post
You could hang a pipe rail gate from
Do some twisted sisters 'til the cows come home
And we'd be havin' us a time

Not if he was in a "SHITTY" mood. Everybody knows that MRE's are the best there is in preventing leaks. If they had today's MRE's back in the day, Three Mile Island and Chernoble would never have happened.
