Please stop posting minor variations of the same message. It's boring, and annoying. You do occasionally, perhaps even frequently, have interesting things to say, but your presentation is defeating your message.

In addition, I suggest you swing with your biggest punches, and ignore the unimportant stuff. I don't think you're probably going to get anyone very excited about what day Jason Lindsey actually resigned. Who gives a damn? Who even gives a damn if he signed this on this day and that on that day. I sign things all the time that have dates on them that aren't really the dates I signed them. Big whoop!

In addition, reposting "You made this little error -- talk to your attorneys" over and over is boring.

I mean, do you think the people you address your posts to are even READING THIS BOARD? Consider your audience. Talk to us, not a bunch of absent people. We are busy and don't necessarily have time to attend to the minutiae you seem to want to pummel us with. Stick with the big items, keep it concise, and make an impact, or you're going to lose your audience. As you may know, there is an "Ignore" button here that allows people to consign you to unreadability, and you are coming perilously close to that status for me, and I suspect for others.
