So, if you're annoyed about something, but reasonably well convinced that attempting to discuss the issue would not meet with success?

Privately writing up a rant about it is a pretty effective way to get it out of your system.

But writing it up as if to be read by Yahtzee Croshaw is even better.

[Folks on eit can likely guess the target of my ire.]

Heh. I just got halfway writing through a rant on that topic, and immediately hit discard, and felt better anyway.

I've got callouses on my delete finger from that thread.

It makes me wonder why I don't really make the straight-to-trash filter I've been saying I'll do for ages.

The procmail recipe for "find any thread over 10 posts where more than 1/3 of those posts are from the same person" seems like it would be very valuable, but tricky to write.

I see you and raise you That Guy With the Glaases.

The rant starts out okay but gets entertaining by the end. Guns and watermelon are involved.

I cannot use any external email accounts from work, which means no reading eit except every three days or so when I get home and still have interest in being near a computer.

Bu I can poke through the smoldering wreckage on occasion.
