Doesn't Belong Here Category

Another bad category idea

Maybe there ought to be a category for people who know their idea is baked or likely to be marked for deletion but want to post it anyway...this would make it a lot easier to get rid of these ideas and avoid them altogether

i just figured it would give people the oppurtunity to post their existant ideas and at the same time give everyone else a category to avoid and moderators a chance to delete unwanted ideas...eh

       Wouldn't that encourage posting ideas that don't belong?

       And needless annotations?
jutta recently amended the term baked on the help page:
baked - this is widely known to exist in the real world. Mere existence alone is not grounds for deletion; it needs to also be widely known. (What exactly constitutes "widely known" is subject to interpretation by the moderators.)
Prior to that amendment, it read something like... "...known to the author of the idea" - some authors just ignored that, or protested vehemently - so I'm sure it made 'baking a task for moderators - this modification will make it a bit more pleasant for our moderators, I hope.

       Giving people a place to do something is unlikely to discourage them from doing it.

       Unfortunately, neither is the reverse, if we are to take the evidence of these pages.

       I could do with this, you know what I'm like ;op

       Perhaps there should be a category for people to post to which doesn't actually display (and is never actually stored) anywhere. Then these ideas can go straight into the void, but they provide an outlet so that people can get them out of their system.   

       A few dummy categories such as 'genetic engineering' and 'cat/toast antigravity' might save the admins a fair bit of work.

       Now that's sound thinking from alx. Fair gods, perpetual motion, word-use fascism...

       I'm still working on a way to properly dress up "Brainpower Increasing Device" (a poorly disguised theory that the first tools were hair-ties, not flint arrowheads).
