    That would give a pretty boring thread, though.

    Person 2: "Ok"

    Nothing about his post implied to me that he did not know the servers were going down (it probably would have been wise for him to state that if that were his point since communicating directly is generally the best way to get a point across). What I read from his statement was that there was not much notice given and that conflicted with his preferred definition of the word scheduled. I assumed this thread was created solely because the servers were down and he had nothing better to do than post a joke thread to spark some conversation (which it did). If he had a valid point he would have taken the time to make an argument rather than post a single sentence. Well thought out arguments have points to back them up which set the stage for a debate. Eight word posts like the original post are too vague to focus the conversation and instead result in a variety of responses (some of which you dislike).
    Everyone who is not in the true definition of "hardcore" is looked down on as a "casual", unwilling or incapable of understanding the true brilliance of having twelve-year-olds insult you while they are teabagging your virtual corpse. - Christian Ward columnist for The Escapist

Make no plans and you will always be spontaneous (i.e. unscheduled).
    Even if you just rush to the toilet, it can at a stretch be called scheduled. But if you do it unintentionally on the couch, its completely unscheduled.
