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.

The rant starts out okay but gets entertaining by the end. Guns and watermelon are involved.
Man, it almost looked like the Hitler card was actually going to end it.
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.
