No, not Andy, but I wouldn't be surprised he'd feel the same.
He'd also question why there had to be 6 different posts dealing with fuel issues instead of all in one or 2. There are 7 fuel related posts on page 2, although two of those ARE about autos to save fuel.
What is it? A competition to see who can get the most posts on a particular subject into "their" thread?
Oh how I wish someone would go wacko with the "merge" function on this forum if it exists.
(NT) Maybe you need to find another forum
Remember? Still, I keep hoping......
I remember ...
... still doesn't explain the coming back just to complain.
Sorry if you missed
all my other posts recently. Nope, didn't come back just to complain, been posting all along, just not as prodigiously as others.
Haven't missed your posts ...
... actually noticed you were posting a bit more lately. Still wonder why you return if you are so bothered by certain posting styles. The occasional concentration of subject lines that aren't specific is nothing new. Neither is the phenomenon of several threads on related topics.
It was the right time
figured it was the right time to mention it since people were already discussing bold blue lines and CAPS used in posts.
Having a bad day there James?
All I can suggest is since at least one of those was my line, maybe you shouldn't bother reading here? Sheesh, such a critic!
Do I hear a squeal?
It's not so much on the weekend, but during the week I'll drop by to check out some threads and when so many are obscure on what they would contain, and then so many threads on essentially the same subject, I end up looking at a few of the others which I can tell the subject on and might find of interest. I don't have time during the week normally to open each and every thread like those who are here day and night.
(NT) maybe you shold find a part time job
(NT) Which ones are the borning ones?
the ones with odd keystrokes in them, the rest are just boring.
Boring or borning....
I think I'll just go on posting as I usually do, notwithstanding.
Now let me see.........
Makes good sense to me James
'Course those that 'have a life of reading and making posts in the SE forum will disagree with you as they more than likely click on "next unread message" reading every post instead of looking at the index to choose a subject to read. They even sometimes even tell someone to 'get a life',.... how ridiculous.
That's how we have....
....talked to each other since the beginning.
Though we sometimes ask for help with our computers, household appliances, automobiles, varmits in our homes, heating/cooling sustems, plumbing, electrical, general how-to's, recipes, jogs to our memories, buying advice for this or that, we are not a Help Forum, so often do not state our purpose in posting, which should be done in a Help forum. In fact, a subject line with only ''Help!'' or ''Wow!'' would draw the attention of our members.
This forum is where folks converse about stuff from A to Z. Some might prefer to just look for topics that interest them, but more just want to talk to each other, as if we were all sitting in a living room. In real-life conversations we don't always start a conversation by announcing the entire subject. We say, ''I saw a great story on TV today. Or, '' I had a good day.'' Or, ''I wish this hadn't happened.'' Those are common conversation starters.
I grant you those ''startersd'' don't appeal to those who only want to talk about only selected topics, so have to hunt those ''boring'' subject lines to see what they are about. Sorta like moving around a crowded room listening for what this group or that group is saying that might be of interst.
Our members are diverse as to age, backgrounds, and intersts, and that diversity is what has sustained SE for quite a few years now. Some of them even visit topic-specific avenues apart from CNet, but check in here regularly to see what's going on.
This is just how we are, and it suits us.

Yep, and "check in here regularly to see what's going on".
is what a lot of us members who have been around a long time who 'have a life' other than the SE forum. Having a non stupid subject saves time, don'tyathink.
John, I believe....
.... that what is "stupid" or "not stupid" lies in the mind of the beholder.
What is interesting or not interesting is in the mind of the beholder.
I doubt there is anything that can be all things to all people.
On a personal note, there are things I don't enjoy seeing here, like old grudges being revisited in a veiled way. But those involved seem to enjoy it, else they wouldn't do it.

Well, In my opinion using a 'subject' title with
a so called "stupid" title... "...to talk to each other, as if we were all sitting in a living room" having a chit chat like a ladies sewing circle, is fine in the Replys, but in the main root subject title, a so called "stupid" subject should not be used, so someone can skip without opening/reading. Just seem logical to me, saving time.
And yeah, I also see about the "old grudges" even here against James.
Yes, that's my point, the starting post, I don't care what gets filled in the subject line within the thread. Just seems the thread opener should give a clue on what it's about. On the older software we would see the start and the internal subject lines which often changed, so we had a clue about what was going on without bother to pop open the thread to find out. I find myself now looking instead to see if there are a decent number of replies before bothering to open those mystery threads.
John, who could have grudges against me for anything? A really good grudge is only valuable if the one it's aimed at is around more. I'm not here enough anymore on a regular basis to make it worthwhile.
So as I said to John ...
... just skip the thread if you feel someone is wasting your time.
When it is a 'stupid' Root post in the Index
who wants to skip it? I do a lot of skipping even when it is not 'stupid'. I am not of the leasure time as you seem to be.
It's too bad you're not
You ARE retired aren't you? Just cuz it will make you jealous, I'll brag how much additional leisure time I have to spend outside of SE! LOL. I love life
Evie and JR ............
We have some snarkiness going on here that is just plain childish.
To JR: You are back to your old tricks again. What you may be trying to accomplish is #1 not working, and #2 just making you look silly.
To Evie: You are taking the bait again. What you may be trying to accomplish is #1 not working, and #2 just making you look silly.
I like you both, so take my comments as you wish. It pains me to see two intelligent and nice people writing such things for all to see, regardless of who said what first.
Thanks, I thought this thread was over with yesterday, but
was baited at the beginning instead of debate over the issue, and again baited this AM.
There does be the fishies that will bite anything that looks like food.
Then there does be the fishies that have more discriminating tastes.
The "Grandaddy" of the pond didn't get that distinction by biting everything dangled in front of him.
Take care, and watch your diet,

Most often I do. I will check out threads that seem to have an interest in them by a number of posts in reply. Am I wasting your time?
James, if you will open your CNet email
in your profile for a short time, I'll send you a CNet email to remind you concerning your question.
