This applies to a single post of "+1" or the inane banter that goes on between posters that would be much better suited for a PM.
If I could draw your attention to the direct left of this post you'll notice the number of posts I've made since I joined. Not even in the triple digits yet. This is because I don't feel the need to vomit out a post whenever I feel like it because I know it probably is not of any interest to anybody else. I just wish others would follow this doctrine.
I understand it's the internet and the rules are lax but I personally enjoy reading. If a book was written in the same format a lot of posts are done in I would burn it on site. The worst part about this is that many of the posters should know better because they're no longer 13 and living in their parent's basement. At least they say they don't anymore...
Is it really necessary you have a massive banner proclaiming your allegiance to your team? Especially since there are probably a lot of people out there who don't know what it means and who also don't really care to find out. I have a pop-up blocker for a reason but, unfortunately, it doesn't remove these so a single thread page ends up being a mile long from all the extra banners.
Don't think I really need to add to this one.
Good thread idea! Really needed to get that crap off my chest.
