Re: Changes to smooth things out

IMO, anybody who can't call up the last 50 posts, quickly screen for whatever he/she wants to read, and go read it has already failed Darwin 101.

I've had people try to stick knives in me, the idea of being bothered by a post is ludicrous.

Re: Changes to smooth things out

I didn't vote, but I don't need any changes. I'm quite capable of ignoring anyone or any posts that are annoying. Sometimes the posts sound like my teenage boys bickering, but I'm used to it

I usually ignore any really long posts, got used to that last year with all the diatribes going on....Unless I see something interesting. Maybe once I'm ER I'll have the time to read them...

Don't count on it. I probably read and posted 10 times as much on this and the other E-R boards when bored at work than I have since.
