    Enforce Opening Post Rules

    17. Starting a Thread - When starting a thread it is best to express your own thoughts in your own words. Threads w/o original content may be summarily closed.
    Too many opening threads with just a link, or a snarky one liner. This is a debate forum, not a comments section or a place to share links to get likes. Reporting them does nothing, so maybe mods could be a little more proactive in cleaning out the trash to foster actual debate.

    Easy my friend, perhaps an inquiry and not a demand might go over a little better. Staff has a good bit to keep up with these days and perhaps what you are reporting does not qualify as needing 'action' by the staff (and what does you may not see anyway.)

    We can also heap scorn and abuse on the original post. I tell them I don't do assigned reading and if they can't be bothered to write a comment why should anyone else?
