I am about to do something that should drive a good bit more traffic to this auction message board. However, I would like to change the name of my forum. I intended, “Deep Thoughts By Patrick Byrne” to be a joke, as in the Saturday Night Live sketches, “Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy.” But I fear outsiders will not get it and think it pretentious.I have settled on a few choices and would like to leave it up to you original denizens:

Take 5 With Patrick
Take Five With Patrick
Take 2 With Patrick
Take Two With Patrick

Please vote.

Message from DeepCapture.com

At the time much of the content on DeepCapture.com was written, the Great Financial Crisis of 2008 was either on the verge of happening or had just occurred. In those days, emotions among this publication’s contributors were raw and, in an effort to get their warnings noticed and appropriate blame placed, occasionally hyperbolic language and shocking imagery were employed.

Were we to write these entries today, a different tone would most certainly prevail.

Yet, being a record of a pivotal time in our global economic history, we’ve decided to leave the rawness unedited, with the proviso that readers take the context of the creation of certain posts into account, and that those easily offended re-consider the decision to read them.
