Good post, Levi
Thanks for posting that. It seems that lately the Utterances board is awash in waaaaay too much of what seems more appropriate for the Mindless Chatter board.
Heck, there are so many utterances lately that things get buried quickly. It also seems like some of the other more substantial boards (like Writers & Genres) are being neglected, and that's a shame.
I think this from your post sums it up nicely:
"I hope that anytime somebody posts here, they pause to think about whether or not other people will enjoy or benefit from the post. If not -- if the post is simply a selfish or careless act of meaninglessness -- then it'd be better for that person not to post it."
