I have to agree.
This really isn't intended to be rude to anyone at all, but for goodness sake, please look before posting.
If there's already a really well developed, organized thread, and many people are participating in it, starting a brand new one at the same time is
just being disruptive. It makes it difficult to participate and also makes it difficult to read all the ideas in one place.
Regarding the other point, link regurgitation is VERY annoying.
Our beloved ATS is a Discussion Board, not AP. If I want a collection of articles I'll go to AP. What we want here is our users' opinions! If you
saw an interesting article somewhere, don't post a link to it and ask everyone else what they think. Tell us what you think. Discussion happens
when multiple people take part. Simply posting a link and asking other people to talk about is NOT participation in a discussion.
