A lot of life unfolds on Forums, you'd think it would make a book. I doubt it will. Why not? To get selected threads to read as narrative, the threads would have to be extensively edited, and that would raise complaints from those left out, and those left in in terms of context. Everyone would expect royalties, so the people who performed the endless labor of editing it all together wouldn't have much reward. And everyone who ended up not liking their "look" in the edited-down version would have problems. So, here it is, Forums; enjoy it as you find it. It will almost certainly never be a book or a movie. But a lot of life passes through these threads. For the novelist Forum members, just fictionalize and away you go.
