well, besides the fact that they're partisan mudslinging at its worst, they strike the most nerve w/ my mouse due to the unnormal amount of downward scrolling i have to exert on a lot of these threads.
There's a very simple solution to this:
Put me on your "ignore" list. (See TJ's thread explaining how it works.)
That way, you won't see any of my posts when you scroll down a thread.
Do yourself (and me) a favor.
