No opinion...No explanation of the topic...Just a link...

First, these threads are nothing more than saying "Hey. Look at this."...Doesn't so much in terms of discussion...

But secondly, it makes the other members go fetch...They don't know what the heck you want to discuss UNTIL they go through your maze...

So throw out a little info with the link...Let the other members know the direction of the thread instead of making them figure it out for themselves...

Also, as per Forum Rules...

Quote:
But in any case, the title of a thread where an article is posted should NEVER do any of the following.

1) Personally attack individual members or a group of members for their political or personal beliefs.

2) Meant to inflame instead of debate

3) Is vague on the thread's reason for existing. ("I Told You So" and "Check This Out" are NOT reasonable thread titles).

I was glad to see this thread, because I've noticed a lot of youtube videos being posted lately in the beginning of a thread with no text, just the video. I won't watch those, because I find it annoying.

And certain members still don't get it.
