Some folks may be wondering why some people end a short post with "second line".
Reason is, there's a rule that you have to add to a conversation, by providing more than just a one line reply.
However, that only applies to posts that don't add to a conversation, basically, "I agree" posts.
That's what we have star and flag options for.
The intention is to get posts that have thought or something to add to the topic.
Now, moderators obviously aren't actually fooled by the "second line".
If a post actually adds something to the conversation, then it's fine.
Or, a moderator simply overlooks it. They get swamped with alerts in any case.
