Yeah .. I thought it would be hypocritical of me to "censor" a thread .. as I'm the worst offender ..
I'm also not comfortable with editing threads .. I don't think they should be "steered" in any way - especially since this is not my website, and I'm really only helping Brian by moving threads to their proper category, deleting spam posts and helping newbies get started.
The thread, being a sticky, will get a lot of views .. for a long time, and will often be the first thread visitors /new members open.
Inside jokes, sarcasm and off topic posts, while hilarious, may scare off some people, and they set a tone more suited to the "Everything Else" section.
I'm going to reluctantly restart the thread .. like a false start in the 100m dash .. !!
