"So his post does NOT limit your ability to read the article ... but yet you complained about his post ... and noted "it is an attempt" (without clarifying what "it" is, since his post is NOT limiting anything)."

That is the most circular logic I have ever heard. Try to Follow me here:

1. ) Strim was complaining about the amount of Windows 7 articles.

2. ) That is an attempt to get the editors to stop posting so many articles about Windows 7. you complain about things you don't want to happen anymore.

3. ) If the editors decide to listen to people complaining about those articles then they would have limited the amount of articles on a given subject.

4.) therefore denying me my right to decide what I read, and the editors to decide what they want to post.

So while his post may not limit postings on it's own, if the editors decide to stop publishing things based on people complaining, it then very well may.

So I spoke up to say, no I disagree with you, and to do a little complaining of my own. I like this site because the editors post a lot of articles on all sorts of stuff, which allows me to get a lot of different viewpoints from 1 site. I've been coming here for about 5 years. I just don't read the articles that don't interest me.

If people don't want to read an article, they can not read it. If an article is not published, then I may not even get the chance to decide.

That's why it is an attempt to limit what is posted, therefore limiting what I can choose to read.

Any clearer?

Ah, my comment spawned ridiculous discussion! Let's pretend that I'm just evil troll.

I'm a big fan of ridiculous discussion, it's what the internet is about
