I thought that you were just referring to the lack of decent songs on that list.
:celebrate5:
Scotch&Observant wins the internet for the week!
Thanks, but I don't think it required a high level of observance. When I see a countdown on this thread, I look to see how many I like. But I saw the songs/artists, and said WTF? I'm sure if IRBS was around, he would've noticed before me.

As for the rest of you, I guess we can slip anything by.

Funny.
I look at the title of the thread and then scroll down to the new posts.
When I see the list, I don't always look at the date unless the countdown is really good or bad.
By the time I look at the date, I've already forgotten which thread it's in.

If the mods are feeling REALLY ambitious, I don't know if my posting the 2000s countdowns in the playlist thread is annoying and they should be in their own new thread? Doesn't bother me, but purists may not like it?
