4. Brevity is the soul of wit
Any body who posts a 10 paragraph essay aobut the state of thing better be pretty good or I'm gone.

Bt also people who say "Am I the only one . . . " always make me want to say "Nope - as a matter of fact I just read three other posts making the same point as you."

6. "One that bashes Democrats" currently has zero votes.
Are people voting based on how they actually behave or based on how they think that one ought to behave?

7. Posts that point out facts I don't know, or advances
interpretations (of said facts) I didn't know. Viewpoints can be interesting, if presented as such--not as analysis. Then the new fact is "gee, so-and-so thinks X", not necessarily "X is true".

But once a thread is displayed on my monitor, the interpretations/analyses have to be based on as much of the data as the author can handle, not just use abductive reasoning on a few facts to produce a hypothesis (falsifiable on not) that is assumed to need no proof.
