This can be said of many Quiverfull Fundies.  I'll be in the prayer closet. Send Irish Coffee.

When my middle daughter was three I asked her what she wanted for breakfast. She said "circles of darkness".  She meant cocoa puffs. 😆

Yes, a circlejerk that extends to several threads is a much better use of bandwidth. I can understand the frustration with how the Duggars and Bates are being discussed lately, but isn’t a three perso

I’m going to guess Jolie for a girl.

I was going to suggest Jolie Rae. As an aside, do they ever refer to Kaci as just Kaci? It seems like they always call her Kaci Lynn.

For a boy, I'm going to guess Asher. No particular reason.

At the risk of sounding like an utter curmudgeon, which, okay, I am at times, would it be improper to suggest that series of posts of nothing but baby name guesses are akin to using this forum as an Instagram aggregate?

Please no one take that personally; generally it's me and not you, not entering into the spirit of things. 

I avoid the baby name thread in the Duggar section though the Next Unread Topic link tries to make me go to it, which is a bit tiresome. The need to "weigh in" is lost on me in terms of discussing what these people are up to.

Sometimes names have religious or family culture implications (a la Spurgeon and Wilberforce, or M names in honor of Michelle 🤮). They can give insight into maturity levels, levels of conformity, and who may have more power in the relationship.  I do not think name guesses or commentary are vapid or fangirling in this instance.

I'm with you. I've put a number of threads on ignore due to it being nothing but baby name talk, which doesn't interest me in the bit. who knows what these folks will name their innumerable kids? That said, folks can continue on with their fun, we should all scroll by the stuff that doesn't interest us, or put the thread on ignore, which is one of the best features ever. It's just that with so many pregnancy announcements lately, the naming discussions have increased. It will die down soon, I hope.

You still end up having to scroll past it if you read the threads the way backyard sylph is talking about

That's what i was wondering, but am packing so was trying to take a short cut to know if she ignored it before I tested it.

That’s a decent point after the name has been announced. Not so much prior to that though. To each their own though. I’ll just skip over the posts that are nothing but guesses. :)

Yes, but that doesn't do anything?

And I guess I think even in slower Bates threads, series of name guess posts in each couple thread are more of a fan thing than not.

I agree but the same could be said about the threads that are full of reposts of their SM and admiring their looks. Of course you can ignore it but that’s not the point that is discussed right now in other threads. Guessing birth date, weight, sex and name has nothing to do with discussing the dangers of Fundamentalism. I enjoy it when it comes up in threads (but won’t visit this specific thread) so I wouldn’t argue to get that banned though.

@Johannah I have to slightly disagree. Spurgeon and Heistheway might be worth the discussion but even the M-Kids names aren’t. They give their kids names starting with the letter M. So what. That says nothing we don’t know- Josh and Anna are the same kind of Fundies like their parents. It’s pure entertainment for us.

It doesn't in the next module, but it takes it out of activity streams and unread, so it's a handy feature - albeit imperfect.

And it can be a fan thing or not ....I find discussions on names interesting no matter the topic, and the random guesses I just scroll past.  In the Maxwell forum an indepth name discussion thread drifted into some really interesting trivia about Alice Roosevelt, which was odd but fun.  

But yeah - scrolling is the best way to handle that.  :)

I do wish it worked for Next Unread Topic as that's what appealed to me when...I thought it would. It's how I enjoy reading here.

I also find names an interesting topic to discuss. But when I click on Zach and Whitney or etc and see post after post of just a couple names, it's not much different than getting a reply notification and going to it to see "lol." I brought it up mainly in light of the fashion photo discussion, however, it's not a big deal.

Jolie Rae is the name of actress/country singer Jana Kramer's daughter.

Didn't we just have a discussion about how posting pics from SM with no real relevance other than just posting a pic for the sake of the posting a pic is actually not a thing we do?

I have a feeling that lots of people won't read the alert at the top of the forum. 

For those who didn't, FJ isn't a Bates family scrapbook. If you post a picture explain why you think we should discuss it.

Yes.  We know what they look like, if we want to see them we'll hit their SM.

      The jury in the Chauvin (George Floyd) trial is sequestered in deliberations as of today. I live in Minneapolis now and the edge in the city is palpable, especially after another police shooting here LAST WEEK. Went to our nearby Target today (the one that was destroyed last summer) and the National Guard is already in the parking lot. If the verdict is not guilty or manslaughter...it's gonna be crazy.

      I thought you were never supposed to forget how to ride a bike! My brain remembers, but my body? Not so much. I think I'm going to go to the cemetery to practice - long flat smooth roads with very few people. I'll wave at grandma and grandpa like I used to do when we rode bikes around and around at their house.

      A few weeks ago, I was telling @HerNameIsBuffy about the generously sized single carrot I received from Imperfect Foods. Well, today I got two more monsters in my box. I ordered a pound of carrots and a pound of sweet potatoes, and this is what they gave me:

      At its widest point, the sweet potato is nine inches in diameter, while the carrot tops out at seven and three-quarter inches. I kinda feel bad about my plans to eat them, as these two are definitely large enough to pursue careers in the adult film industry.

      Fuck. Both of my interns are in quarantine. One is positive, the other is a close contact (her exposure was from her roommate, not the other intern). I know six other people who are or were sick within the last month and at least four other people who've had to quarantine after close contact. Things were supposed to be getting better. 😷

      I think most of us on FJ dislike the way many of the fundies talk about "training" their children. I've often read FJers post, "You train a dog. You teach a child."
      I would also bet that most of us don't think about humans as being "well bred", like a good breeding line of purebred dogs. 
      I'm a bit nauseated right now from reading the phrase "well bred" applied to human beings so many times. What bullshit.
      And apparently, I think too much.

      I feel like we need a Rachel Hollis snark thread. She landed in a lot of trouble recently after a bad TIKTOK video. She isn't fundie, although she is the daughter of a Pentecostal minister.  I've been watching videos on Youtube about her, both from before the scandal and now. I didn't know much about her, but I'm catching up.
