Suggestion - Snip Often

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Archie Andrews, Jun 2, 2009.

  1. When a thread has over 600 replies, there's little doubt as to the
    subject matter because respondents are likely engaged in heavy usage
    banter. There is no need to constantly repeat previous messages in
    such cases and snipping should be encouraged.

    Says a nym-shifting troll who helps SkyBuck's cross posted garbage threads flourish and forever show up on my news server.

    Get a life, nym-shifting asshole.
