Well, yes, I think it's an irritating waste of time. But I think that sort of thing generally comes from new members, who have come from the other boards, and haven't yet gotten the gist of what TFL is about.
Give them some time, let them see what the "complexion of the board" is, and if they catch on, then maybe we've helped them to start considering the serious issues.
It's going to happen, so I just try to ignore it. And I never feel less inclined to re-visit TFL. It's too good too much of the time to go without.
