John in Hull: a good point, and well said. However, is that Joe's only point? If so, he could have said it once and had done with it. I once posted how annoying I found "happy birthday threads" and then I dropped it. I don't keep bringing it up, nor do I keep going into "birthday" threads and posting about how I feel about them. If you look at the VOLUME of words Joe has written on this subject in the last 48 hours, it's like 3 or 4 normal threads' worth. Who's wasting bandwidth here?
This is an open forum and members are free to post what they will. Max has made this very clear.
So why keep flogging the dead horse? What is in it for Joe to keep reminding us, ad nauseam, about his pet peeve?
And no, it's not because Spaw is a beloved member of our community. Joe has said of these prayer/healing threads in general, and I quote, I suppose that healing threads work very well as a source of comfort for those who believe in things like chain letters and pyramid schemes and television evangelism and eating to lose weight.
Perhaps we should start a permathread about "How Joe Offer Feels About Healing Threads" -- and when another one popped up, he could just post a link to it.
I really don't understand the level of what appears to be vehemence and irrationality coming from an otherwise rational, sane, and friendly guy. Nor do I agree with his "method" in attacking his least favorite kind of thread. And so I ask the questions I do.
