I'm getting a little frustrated here. I'm getting the idea that anybody can jump into a thread, post their 2 cents and not even look at the course of the discussion. Thus their post is either a rehash of points that have already been made OR they miss the point of a thread entirely. (I'm talking Chocolate Jesus here but I don't want to derail those who are on track in that conversation.) I'm a member over on Television Without Pity and they have a rule of 15 pages, or 15 posts or 15 days or something like that. It's purpose is that if you are going to participate in a thread, you should go back and read the relevant comments in that thread first before you just start posting your thoughts. It's to ensure that there are new insights and perspectives to be shared and added and not just a bunch of repetition from different people. Should a person be responsible enough to read the last 15 posts or the last 15 days worth of posts before they can contribute to the thread OR is it acceptable for people to dropout of the internet sky, make their point independent of everyone else who is active in the conversation and then return to the nether world from where they came? Thoughts?
