Okay, I reply to this post over on the California board. The poster is planning a trip from LA to Seattle, has five days to make the trip, and wants suggestions for interesting and tasty eating along the way.
I reply with a few things I have run across in California. Next thing I know, this post appears:
If you read the link above, as I did, perhaps one of the things that would pop into your mind is "Okay, so what if I recommend stops in LA, the central valley, San Francisco, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington?"
Must one so carefully phrase questions on this board that one must anticipate the answer before it is given? Must one so carefully answer as to avoid the slightest hint of crossing a county line or municipal boundary?
This has got to be one of the dumbest "do be carefuls" I have ever run across in all of my long days.
Folks, sysadmins, readers, and writers; the world does not array itself perfectly for us, geographically or syntactically. Some posts are not going to fit perfectly into the well-organized cnet bin.
Grossly off-topic posts and replies are easily moderated.
Road trips gotta start somewhere and end somewhere, and they may not take straight lines. Juking some dude around for failing to cross post across 4 possible boards,(LA, San Fran, Cal, PNW) and possibly more, depending on how you classify Idaho, strikes me as very, very, dull. I am new here. Please tell me this is not the norm. If I have to argue with the Presbyter every time I want to talk about a road trip, or inquire of those of others then please, please, tell me now.
