Judging by the list of "tweets" in the sidebar T'Bonz seems like a good idea.

We (well, most of us) understand that the bird isn't causing the wider right column, but due to the timing it is a convenient scapegoat... err, scapebird for our displeasure with the change.

The newly expanded right column really does jack up the main portion of the board for a lot of people, though.
Careful. This thread might get closed like the others.

Maybe we should name the bird "Dottie" after that guy's wife in Armageddon..."She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape".

Same here. I'm just going to focus on the board and relive the glory days of 640x480.

No sense naming that which should not exist.
