look people...i watch the quakes, too. i have an EQ app on my phone. so yes i'm interested in them but come on...do we really need a thread for every EQ over 5.0?
it's recockulous! it's like y'all are just posting stuff to get your post/flag count up. if it's under a 7.0, it's not really that amazing. and no...three 5.2's in 2 hours isn't special either. seriously...the new topics section has just become a spam box for meaningless EQs. effing annoying. no one cares that a 5.something hit somewhere. it just makes more garbage threads you have to weed through to find actual news.
i think 6 is still too common. there's a couple 6's every week lately, almost all around japan. i would personally say that a 7 or better is news worthy. now if a 5.9 happens and hours later there are stories of toppled buildings and dead people...yeah...that's news worthy.
i mean...posting even every 6 would be like posting every time i shaved my beard: couple times a week and nothing spectacular comes from it!
i really wish the mods would make a rule that it has to be a 7 or better to deserve an all caps thread (or thread period). other than that, they can all go on the quake watch list. again...i'm interested in the quakes. i truly am. but i don't think a 5.2 off the coast of australia deserves a thread 3 times a week.
