No doubt this post will drop into downvoted oblivion.

If posts on certain topics are getting downvoted repeatedly, maybe it may make sense to pay attention to that feedback that the community is either not interested in the subjects in question or strongly objects to the presentation of the posts in question.


No doubt this post will drop into downvoted oblivion.

This is a rhethorical move IMHO. It's like when you say "I know it is a stupid question, but " then everybody expects something really bad, and in comparison finds your question not so stupid at all. Lowering expectations.

If it's worth saying, but not worth its own post (even in Discussion), then it goes here.

Notes for future OT posters:

1. Please add the 'open_thread' tag.

2. Check if there is an active Open Thread before posting a new one. (Immediately before; refresh the list-of-threads page before posting.)

3. Open Threads should be posted in Discussion, and not Main.

4. Open Threads should start on Monday, and end on Sunday.
