Unspoiler and enlarge the sigcouragement. It's also kind of an apology ('cuz I was, admittedly, one of those opposed to overly lengthy posts [not necessarily just Blitzposts] without tables of contents and/or spoilers).
Well, to me it reads like a passive-aggressive way of saying “don't post lengthy BlitzPosts”. But I'll shut up now, I don't want to revive this discussion ... again.
Good point. I hadn't noticed it could be read like that. I'll fix it.
(edit: read; you seem to have removed it) like a much more positive message.

I'm glad you're asking.
I think it's terrible. We, in the present, are the cool kids and can set the rules for those losers stuck in the past? Also, like StratPlayer noted, why aren't we bound by such rules? We repeat ourselves all the time here in the OTT. (Me right now, for instance.
may not like to read something that was already said a long time before, but I
do – reminiscing like: aww, we were so naive back when we thought Time was fading away.
You can skip BlitzPosts that you don't like, but I can't read them if you've bullied people into not reading them.
I think you should go and pelt yourself with slightly expired M&M's. Peanut M&M's.
When I asked about it, it was entirely in the field of whether I was saying what I wanted to say, and not what you think I should say.
I disagree with you, and not only that, but you are implying something entirely different than what I said. The only "rule" I "imposed" is to think about what you post, and even that is a suggestion. If you don't like it, tell people to ignore the suggestion.
I can't help it if you don't think about what you post. I certainly do. Then I usually post anyway. I don't think it is in anyway unacceptable or even inadvisable to ask that people who we can't even respond to
in a reasonable or timely fashion think about what they post, and how it will be received.
And if you want to wallow in nostalgia, there's nothing stopping you
from blitzing. I'll miss you, much as you infuriate me over this issue, but If it makes you happy, go for it! I'll even cheer you on. We just won't be able to have any kind of reasonable conversation until you catch back up.
and now that you have me ranting about something I really didn't want to get drawn back into, I'll stop. No more talking about blitzing unless somebody else talks to me about it. I hope.
