Egad! Enough with the "white noise" posts already!
Maybe I'm just grumpy because I'm busy, but right now I have very little tolerance for posts that serve no purpose whatsoever (except maybe to raise a particular person's post count).
Technical posts are why I'm here. Courtesy posts (like thank yous) are Ok too, since they serve a useful purpose (indicating that the original poster is now a happy camper), as well as just being "the right thing to do" from a social perspective. Even a certain amount of horseplay is fun (lord knows, I jump into that too).
The posts that do nothing but squander bandwidth annoy me though. It was bad enough when just one person was doing it, although they probably thought it was cute. Now that more people are starting to do it, the practice is really starting to annoy me.
i dont want to turn this into a flame so here are two observations
1. some of us (omitting names so as not to get them in trouble)happen to have a cryptic thank you that displays itself as
"so and so does X" this is just a combination of thank you and an aknowlegement of the poster's skill
2. it's just so infectious.
seriously, i see your point and maybe we can start special threads for just talking but i dont want to foster a hard assed community here, i want us all to enjoy this area and
"a little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men."
Hey, guys/gals (where the heck did I pick this Texan accent??? At the bar last night?)!!!
It's Mr. Lindmand and I that have a grudge (goes a couple of months back), not you all!!! And a joke here and there is just fine. Especially if it's about Brett falling off the bar-stool...I mean his office chair
It's not even Mr. Lindman. Mr. Lindman has tried to play nice with Mr. Djabarov for the past few months, willing to let bygones be bygones, but Mr. Djabarob has insisted on jumping onto the ends of threads with snide and pointless comments, and Mr. Lindman's patience only goes so far.
If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
