As far as I can see (and I think this is what his parenthetical aside was referring to) every post in this thread is pointless as the OP hasn't awarded any. I could be wrong.
But as I pointed out much earlier the OP has made the request, I'm sure the hosts have seen it by now and it is up to them as to whether it is implemented. End of story whether you agree with the OP or not.

At least you have won the award for the most boring, pointless (I choose my words carefully) thread of all time.
But a thread to which you have felt the need to continue to make contributions, some of them pointless themselves.
And, Michael, what makes this astute observation of yours particularly exempt from your own charge? (Or, for that matter, this post?)
