Tuesday Rant

It's Tuesday, again, and that means it's time for the Tuesday Rant. This is the thread where you get to complain to us, and we get to ignore you totally without even reading your comments. Just kidding - we read every comment carefully before totally ignoring it.

Unfortunately, some of the past Tuesday Rants went a little off-track, so we have to present a new set of Rant Rules. If these get general approval, we'll modify our Terms of Service and notify all users.

First, no toolbar rants. This is now explicitly forbidden unless accompanied by cute pictures of cats. Anyone complaining about the toolbar without posting a lolcat will find their toolbars mysteriously double in size each time they complain. Don't say I didn't warn you! Pink unicorns are not an acceptable substitute for cats.

Second, no rants over a thousand words, and yes, I'm looking at you, Josh. A good rant should be focussed and precise, you make your point, add some italics for emphasis (but never underlines!), and Post. Fifty to a hundred words is perfect.

Lastly, keep your rants on topic. Rants about mothers-in-law, crazy bosses, and incompatible browser versions are not allowed by the new ToS. Neither are rants about rants, or rants about us missing the last couple of Tuesdays.

Thanks for your patience and help in making these new rules work. Now let the ranting start!
