Where is the Puzzler answer?

A post was split to a new topic: 2010 Nissan Altima left running

How do I stop a thread - or delete it. I posted a question - there has been some discussion - I don’t want to rudely sign off and stop receiving comments…

Just stop replying when you’re done. Deleting the thread would be the rude move because then others could not come along and benefit from the answers you were given.

@whereisthebus, if you go into the thread and scroll to the bottom you can click on the button that says “tracking” and it reveals some options. Click Muted, and you’ll no longer get updated on the comments in the thread in question.

I am quite accustomed to being ignored, @Whereisthebus . Doing so makes me feel right at home so just ignore away with guiltless abandon.

I am reviving this old post because I am suddenly unable to create a new topic. For two days I had no create topic button with Chrome or Safari, but had one with Firefox. I could not create a new topic with Firefox buy the chose a category topics would not respond and though I could type in a post, when I dried to post it ,it woild take me back to choose a category.
Is anyone else having this problem?

Good morning Barkydog,
This reminds me of the radio show only better. “Don’t drive like my brother”. :slight_smile:
Glad I found Cartalk.

Why do the puzzlers come in the “3rd” half of the show"? Just exactly how many 1/2 are there in your shows cause I think I’m cheated out of a whole lot more of your witty banter. Or do I just not understand how fractions work😉

Clearly you’ve never read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 5-book trilogy. :wink:


The answer is 42. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Don’t you mean 6 book? :sunglasses:
1 - The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
2 - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
3 - Life, the Universe and Everything
4 - So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
5 - Mostly Harmless
6 - And Another Thing…

Another Thing doesn’t count, since it wasn’t written by Adams. :wink:

I’d like to thank you for finally allowing me to block other users in the settings, but did you have to take away another setting that lets me not shoot to the bottom of the conversation when I reply to someone, allowing me to keep reading all the responses between my comment and the one to which I responded?

We took three steps forward and one step back, so I am thankful for progress.

Hi. I can’t take credit for either of the things you pointed out. The Discourse developers must have pushed some changes I didn’t know about. The latter sounds very annoying, though, and I’m sorry to hear that’s happening.

It could be worse. It’s a mere pet peeve.
