Voted "couldn't care less" but that means: whatever way the wind blows is A-OK with me.

The thing is, it can work against you if you're not proofing what you're posting. I'll give an example: There's a signature in another very new and nice forum flaunting 9-11, a deeply moving historic occurrence for many, myself included. The year is incorrectly stated as 2011, yet implores you to "never forget." It's been up like that at least a few days now. I took a snip but I'd rather the message kind of meander and wander to that person's attention in an profoundly indirect and 10th hand way.

Yeah.

Yeah.
You have a point. And there are cases where it's misused or somehow inappropriate, depending on the eye of the beholder.

I just saw that tonight..... over at Oldschool's forum.

Yes, an unfortunate error.
