I don't want to be the annoying upstart who criticizes everyone else, but...here we go.
Could we please make an effort to stay on topic on forum threads? It's discouraging to post a question or comment hoping for a healthy, focused discussion and see the thread devolve into insults and unrelated musings.
If you're not interested (or informed) in a particular topic, that's fine. But please don't ruin it for others who are trying to provoke some intelligent discussion.
