I, too have become dismayed with the degeneration of this list. Used to be a person could look forward to the postings every day, and read all of them. Now, however, a guy has to wade through a lot of garbage to find the gems.
Can I offer a solution? Seems to me that NO human being is so bright that they can generate more than ONE pearl of wisdom per day. Yet some seem to feel that they can make our lives better with five, six, or seven great contributions EVERY day.
Maybe if, as a condition of being on this list, we were all limited to only one (or only two, although I personally think that's too much) posting per day, on our honor, we would be more reflective, saving our opportunity to step up to the soap box for our best or most impactive point.
