Rename

How about we simply call it "I'm Sad That"? That'sBupkis! 01:47, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Agreed, moved accordingly as he actually doesn't "pause" after the word "that," and even if he did, I'd question that still. ColdReactive 07:58, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
The ellipsis is not meant to imply a pause here; it's meant to imply continuation. And whatever happened to waiting for consensus? Heimstern Läufer 08:01, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Bleh... move it back if you desire. I won't stop you. Not that I'd care if I got banned here either.... Being banned on UbuntuForums, ReactOS.org, Nuklearpower Forums, hrm... what else could I get banned on -_- ColdReactive 08:05, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Banned? Certainly not. We don't ban people for things like this. I am going to move it back, though, because we haven't achieved consensus. For the record, I oppose the move to a no-ellipsis version because it's grammatically wrong to just leave a subordinating conjunction like "that" hanging. The ellipsis tells us there's something more to come that will complete the sentence. Heimstern Läufer 08:09, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
What about an emdash? ColdReactive 08:11, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
{after edit conflict} Continue discussion if you wish. I think the current title is fine, but if others can think of something better, cool. Heimstern Läufer 08:12, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Heimstern. This article's title needs some indication that the whole running gag isn't just mentions of Strong Sad saying "I'm sad that", but instances of him saying it, followed by indicating the reason why he is sad. Alternatively, we could move the article to I'm Sad That X to match some of our other articles, although I wouldn't choose that before I would choose the current title.
