Mscha: you don't offer suggestions because you are superior to the person you are suggesting things to. You offer suggestions because you have more experience than those people. Having read nearly all of the OTT, I have more experience with it than most people who are currently blitzing do.(I've missed something like 30 pages) It isn't because I feel superior to them(I am, but only in matters of dispensing punishment to heretics... ) so much as in the same fashion as one who has spent years on the sea might suggest not setting out if the sky is red in the morning. It is because I wish to help them that I suggest, not because I wish to suppress them.
They can offer suggestions to me, as well, and I will consider them--which is all I expect anyone to do with a suggestion. My suggestions are likely to have a bit more weight, I guess, simply because I have read more than they of the OTC, but that doesn't mean that mine or incioble, nor that theirs are are not worth considering.
In short, a suggestion is only a suggestion, not an order or a rule. much like posting, I can only worry so much about how people may take it. I am not(outside of possibly the initial argument, depending on how you interpret it--I never meant to, but that may not be how it came out) saying people shouldn't blitz, nor trying to discourage them from posting signposts; I merely think that they, and we as well, should consider how others will read the post, and then decide whether it is worth posting. No lie, I have deleted entire posts before posting them)some longer than this one) because they were neither witty, informative, helpful, nor added to the thread in my opinion. Is it really so wrong to ask that others put as much thought into what they post as I, given that I don't expect them to take my words as law?
If so, then you really should stop telling people not to post suggestions, because what right do you have to do so? what makes you superior to the people who post those?
I realize that, and I don't want to do that – the last thing in Time that I want is to continue this discussion – but the problem is, if we just “agree to disagree”, your signature (and others) keeps discouraging Blitzers from posting. That may not be your intention, but it is proven reality.
But now I'll shut up, because you're obviously not going to change your mind.
I have made it a note to Coma Blitzers and it isn't has bold and harsh. I like Ketchup posts/blasts from the past but I still think people coming back from Coma should be responsible with there blind posts, it doesn't take that long to read 3-5NP and quote discussions properly.
