Happy Cuddle Bakery

A nice warm place to which we can direct certain newcomers

  [vote for,

A pleasant half-bakery, moderated by a kindergarten teacher, full of undeserved effusive praise, "A" for effort type encouragement and constant affirmations like "you are sooo smart and special".

For example:

[kid_knowsabit] registers and posts his idea for Actual Perpetual Motion that he has had since he was seven but to which he has never managed to get anyone to pay any attention. After his long grammatically wanting missive, we simply link him to the Happy Cuddle Bakery. If he comes back from there comlpaining that all they do is praise his creative genius and encourage him to keep on inventing, but he wants actual criticism, _then_ we skewer him alive.

       I think a kids' Bakery was suggested once before, but that would still be different from this.   

       [+] This might be good for a lot of kids/ teens that aren't really fit for this place. But I know I really benefited from being skewered alive, since it forced me to do research and post better thought-out ideas.

       Now there's a level of maturity often missing in this place, [acura]. Kudos.
david_scothern, Dec 19 2007

       oh, but [acurafan] you ARE so smart and special.
globaltourniquet, Dec 19 2007

       Well, this idea is not about how to deal with lousy ideas. We know how to do that. We skewer them mercilessly - it is meet, right and a joyful thing. This is for what to do about the occasional tool that refuses to endure it without erupting into personal attacks.

       Prior art ?

       Skewering turkeys is part of the spirit of the season. [-]
coprocephalous, Dec 20 2007

       Good idea, maybe we could send [custerd] there.
zeno, Dec 20 2007

       What a great idea [globaltourniquet]! You must be one hulluva guy. Kind, compassionate and intelligent too. I want to be more like you.   

       Oh, sorry. Wrong bakery.
wagster, Dec 20 2007

       Oh yeah, this is a perfectly good idea.... [-]!
quantum_flux, Dec 20 2007

       I don't even know if this place exists.
wagster, Dec 20 2007

       It must cause you can't ever leave. Or so it seems.
blissmiss, Dec 20 2007

       Am I paying attention? tsk tsk.
zeno, Dec 21 2007

       [Uncle Nutsy] is still here. He just doesn't write anything because he thinks he's left and is living in the "real world".
wagster, Dec 21 2007

       Someone really aught to bump [Boysparks]' link. It's ace.
