There seems to be a trend of late wherein posters (myself included) will post a non sequitor in response to the OP in the Pit.
Do the Mods have a problem with this?
I personally think it’s a helluva lot better than posting nasty, negative remarks and starting a flame war. I’d rather reply with “Mmmmmm…you can really taste the goat” than “You are a jerk” or “You’re wasting bandwidth with your post” or similiar responses.
I can’t see the point in being nasty unless the OP is a direct attack on another poster and the poster is defending him/herself. Calling someone a jerk because he/she hates Sears, for example, is just being childish.
This is my opinion, of course.
quietly waiting for the first poster to call me a jerk or acuse me of wasting bandwidth…
