Nah, suggestions are allowed to be hopeless....
LOL. Then why did you go back and completely change yours?
I see what you're saying, Ron, but if we're constantly stuck on the "great write, loved it, thanks" comments, it's difficult for the beginner to get further, and it keeps the more knowlegable back, because 'reams of twiddle' gets boring.
I've never noticed "that" many responses of that kind in Critical Analysis, Kif Kif, though I recognize there will always be some. Outside of CA, of course, responses of that kind are perfectly acceptable because we're not going to assume that all beginners necessarily want to "get further." There's a lot of people here and I doubt any two are here for exactly the same reasons. And that's cool, because all those rambling paths eventually wend to the same destination. Some just like the scenic route, I suppose.
In my experience, people don't learn new habits from announcements or sticky threads. Those who read them don't need them, and those who need them never read them. People learn, instead, from examples being set by others.
