    Ok, time for a rant. What is going on with all the "+1" posts? I've been seeing way too many of these lately. It adds nothing to the conversation, and seems to be a total waste of time. If you've got something to say, then say it. If you don't have anything to say other than "+1", don't say anything at all. It's annoying and stupid.

    And while we're at it, can we please stop with the posts that are nothing but a quote from a previous poster? This, too, is lame. I'm still tolerating the posts that are nothing but a smiley for now, since those at least reveal something about how you feel about a subject (but not much).

    It's posts like this that are making me think TB is starting to degenerate into AOL speak. As this site is the most grammatically correct forum on the planet, I'd like to see the asinine levels reduced back to their regular levels (i.e., Mike Money's posts). Don't make me bring the smack down on you people.

    I will not taunt you. From now on, I will use, "What he said." These type of posts do serve to give the original poster a sense of how many think the same way and who they are. I've been around long enough that I just assume that people insert some sarcastic remarks into my response so I don't have to. When I give a brief response to a serious issue like a technical question, I further assume that most folks know my biases anyway, so there's no sense belaboring them. Except in the Lobby, where many have come to hate my guts. How will I survive? Stay tuned.
