In order to make an intelligent response, knowledge of the context to which you are responding is ALWAYS required. Don't kid yourself. If you wish to make stupid comments, then continue to do as you have done. If you wish to make intelligent ones, though, that are worth reading, rethink your strategy and make sure they are not founded on ignorance.That required no deeper knowledge of (or interest in) the thread.
