So, in other words, "putting in the effort" is the last thing we should be worrying about, because most of us have lives and work and stuff to do. While it can be edifying to participate in these discussions, obsessing over minor details of form is a complete waste of time and energy.

Of course, if you choose to expend your energy that way, that's entirely up to you, and those of us who do read your comments will appreciate the cleanliness. But it isn't anything I would recommend.
