Response to Bernardo de La Paz (Reply #6)

7. You should reread the forum's Statement of Purpose, perfesser

Especially the part that states "Post excerpts from articles, blogs, and other recently-published material related to politics, issues, and current events."

If you're so confused as to who the author of an OP excerpt titled "Duncan Hunter: Evidence will trump political agendas", you might want to check out local remedial reading classes.

IMHO suggesting posters not using the excerpt tag are anti-progressive and inconsiderate because a reader might have to expend 6 seconds to clarify the obvious reaches new heights in anal-retentive pettiness.

Perhaps you should petition the admins to enforce your excerpt tag rule while also recommending an update to Strunk's Elements of Style to address this concern.

Or you could just comment on the contents of the posting instead of focusing on the meta.
