It seems that more and more often, threads are being posted with absolutely NO references backing up the OP claims, while having sensational titles/subjects. Many threads are even misleading, often blatantly misquoting what people have actually said, and putting the poster's own undocumented spin on things. It is astounding at how many of these threads/opinion pieces with nothing, NOTHING to back the claims up, get enormous amounts of stars and flags and quickly build in page length, and does nothing but waste the time of those of us that are truly attempting to DENY IGNORANCE. Then there is the problem of repeated, out right mean-spirited insults and personal attacks that have suddenly become commonplace from many who seem to have an agenda to discredit those that are clearly trying to Deny Ignorance. I am also chagrined by HOW MANY DUPLICATE THREADS are being allowed to stay on the boards, when the only difference between them is the title wording.
I would like to agree but to be honest I'm sick of this same type of thread almost every week.. Before bemoaning useless and repetitive threads maybe YOU should do a search..
