I chose to just use "Find" to find the instances of sombrero, and sorry I still don't get it.

Could someone clue me in on the sombrero thing? I totally missed it.
Read this thread, in it's entirety.
Or as much of it as you can safely absorb. Not everyone can handle that much fun!

It started as, from my POV, as lighthearted pokes at nitpicking details about what should or should not be in the new film. Many people were listing silly things that should be included in it. Ideals began becoming Photoshopped reality's, (all in fun) The Shats head on vectoring nacelles & spitting pez etc... when suddenly Samuel T. Cogley suggested, well here, this is the exact post.

And is there any way we can make the saucer section look more like a sombrero? Or maybe put a sombrero on top of the saucer section?
That really struck a nerve firmly attached to our funny bones and it took off from there.

Ah, memories...

Well, that gets you a warning for flaming. Was what darkshadow0001 wrote really that offensive?

I can't stress this enough: If you don't like a thread topic stay out of it. Ignore it. Is the sombrero stuff really so terrible that it merits something like the above? I mean really. At its worst it might be a little annoying, but I don't think it merits that kind of hate.

What are you saying? That you are not easily amused by seeing the exact same joke (mexican hat!) 10,000 times on one board?

BE EASILY AMUSED DAMMIT!

I think the guidlines for the forum do say something about not starting a whole bunch of joke threads on exactly the same topic, but you know this crazy TrekBBS! We'll try anything once (or more)!

You don't think having every other post in the entire Star Trek XI being about ****** sombreros for the past month or two is more than just 'a little annoying'? Not to mention prolonging and forcing something that was never even funny on every member of TrekBBS

Here's the deal, the sombrero fad is dying. It is going away. But every time people start complaining about it, it makes a come back. It's pretty much restricted to this thread, the blue warp nacelle thread, the change our avs back, and the other one comparing it to the Not Dead meme from a couple years ago. That's it. Sure there may be a few one off quips here and there but it's easy to ignore / dodge them and post about whatever it is the topic is supposed to be about. The only way to move on from the fad is to just post normally.
