    Dear MidlandTrailquestsGraham

    I am writing to tell you how very upset I am about the lack of courtesy shown in you post. If you cannot be bothered to start your post “Dear All” please don’t post at all.

    Yours Sincerely

    Always think that OP stands for opinionated pr*ck,perhaps in some cases it does 8)

    I always thought “OP” refered to the content of the original post not the poster

    Eg: “getting back to the OP” meaning refering back to the original question/point when a thread has gone of topic.

    Either way, I reckon the OP(sic) is trolling.

    No that’s OT not OP, not to be confused with OTT or OAP.

    Anyway, back to the OT, I do actually agree with MGT here, it sort of robs me of my Awesome if you refer to me as OP, I have name, I am TSY.

    But there’s no point crying over spilt milk, as they say, unless you’re a vegan of course… oh.

    I was told never to make “Me too” posts as it just wastes band width.

    MilitantTrailcenterGrant / OP this topic has wasted more bandwidth than everyone that has ever said +1 on STW. 🙂

    I feel that I’ve been misrepresented. I’d like to express my disagreement once more.

    So that’ll be -2.

    Or -1 x 2.

    Oh yes, that reminds me.
    When I first got on the internet, I was told never to make “Me too” posts as it just wastes band width.
    It seems like people now consider replacing “me too” with “+1” is acceptable.
    It is not.

    complaining about stuff on the internet – what a waste of bandwidth

    I don’t think I have anything to add to what the OP said – so I’ll just waste a little bandwidth with a pointless post

    SNAFU.

    Is a pointless post the same as a blunt post?

    Make sure you dont double post anything, its a waste of his dial up connection.
    Or is he downloading illegally and therefore every little ounce of bandwidth he can get is being used.

    Phil have you just found the internet, LOLCATS are so last year.

    Phil have you just found the internet, LOLCATS are so last year.

    been on the internet for years, but knowing that lolcats are irritating in so many ways keep me happy 🙂 the fact there’s IT bods sitting at their desks squirming each time i post one makes coming on STW worthwhile!

    plus there’s a lolcat for every situation.

    Can we just let this completely and wasteful thread die a natural death? And just how many cats were harmed during the making of this pointless and wasteful thread?

    ok I’m getting confused… can you get a crown race off with an OP then ??

    Crown races only come off with the voodoo that is practised at the back of the LBS. You know, that special area that they won’t let you see. Where they keep the chisels.

    OP makes a lot of sense though; 100 posts into some argument about some triviality vaguely related to the OP and someone says in response to grahams post, it can be quite unclear who graham said or what his opinion was.
    OP is quite clear.

    +100
    while this is just perpetuating a pointless rant by the OP, the above quote is why I’ll sometimes use ‘OP’, instead of having to c’n’p a deliberately overlong username everytime I want to refer to his/her original post/point.
    Oh, cheesy tho’ the lolcats are, they still make me lol!

    If you haven’t got the courtesy to reply to someone by name, don’t bother.

    More or less on the same subject, could people refrain fron shortening names as this is disrespectful too. MilitantTrailquestGraham is not MTG, Surrounded by Zulus is not Zulus, Elfinsafety is not Elfin etc and by trying to be familiar with me by calling me Don simply doesn’t wash. The respecrt, while welcome, is not sincere. Mini rant and perpetuation of completely pointless and bandwidth wasting thread complete.
