We've got to give some credit to @bshredder for the concept here, too, which he would surely recoil from in abject disgust I'd argue it's a vital topic for this forum with implications that run through pretty much every thread here. An informed discussion, for those who choose to partipate or simply consult it, could be a worthwhile addition. But it's also a place you can redirect the off-topic urinating contests when they pop up in other threads where they don't belong. And can be safely ignored by bshredder, if not you & your fellow mods, but I tend to think the issue having a home here will tone down the testiness when the issue inevitably pops up elsewhere. Also, pointing to this thread will provide a good warning to a poster to keep it on topic and hopefully spare mods the effort of having to intervene. Long overdue, really.
