    as time goes by you just click on stuff with posts by funny people.

    you avoid the fuckwits (if you have not blocked them) OR you search out their posts to flame them.

    You look at posts by pretty newbies to see if they have any intelligence as well as nice pex

    If they have a lot of capital letters, a lot this "****", ">>>>", or thread title ends with a lot of "!!!!!!".

    I usually have to like the topic title. But also, they need to have a lower number of responses. I have found there is no point to replying to a thread that already has 100s of responses.

    This is how I do it,

    1. I look at the name of the RJ member who originated the post. By now I have a fairly good idea as to which RJ posters are sufficiently smart and can post thoughtful forum questions. There are some regular RJ posters that are just too juvenile and their forum questions are usually light weight, stupid, or uninteresting, and I avoid their posts like bubonic plague.
    2. I also skim the responses to see if some of the juvenile RJ posters have "hijacked" the post and basically destroyed the thread. I try to stay away from posts/threads that have been substantively decimated by the crackheads.
    3. I look at the substance of the post. The more interesting, intriguing, or controversial they are, the more I'm likely to respond.

    That's it. Overall, there are some really thoughtful RJ posters on here, and their posts are always a source of entertainment, information, and education.

    I'm to lazy to do all that so I usually just post when I see that the last poster was someone I know icon_redface.gif

    Usually by title. If it is something I feel I can comment on I usually give some input. We'll see what happens later on, I'm still pretty new here.

    Way Cool! Love Pex!

    I mostly choose based on weather or not the subject would require a thoughtful response from someone.

    Discussing Britney's new album probably isn't going to generate much.

    Anything which doesn't concern "The Guy Above You", if the "straight" guy/friend is really sending the OP mixed signals, or why blacks/asians/hispanics/outer space aliens aren't attractive to white men.

    Believe you me, there are so many of the aforementioned threads it's pathetic.

    Why waste my genius on a comment that no-one will see? If there is more than one page of responses, it's garbage. Most of the guys on here are on drugs or drunk, or crazy. The guy who posted the forum would never stay with it long enough to see what I wrote, and my brilliant response would be lost in the haze of nonsense, so why bother? You got lucky! :-)

    I find I'm drawn to threads with titles that are poorly written; bad grammar, spelling, consideration of content, ALL CAPS, etc.

    I'm drawn to them mainly out of annoyance, frustration and general disgust.

    There seems to be an increase in this lately.
