Jake, you write as though everything sent to this forum appears automatically, whereas the input is in fact filtered by Haaretz people. What gets through does indeed include a lot of repetitive, mindless, irritating rubbish (this included?), but there is at least the chance (and probably the reality) of filtering out the worst. Actually, if what gets through is as bad as one can see that it is, it is frightening to try and imagine what gets filtered out!
