I miss the good old day when people on LWN.net were not afraid of saying "you are right and I was wrong". Yes, it has happened before.

In any case, suggest to also killfile me, because I don't kind killfiles acceptable. I won't let bad comments go unanswered. Not answering those comments gives the impression that everyone agrees IMO.

As a reader, reading the same trollish arguments over and over detracts from the LWN.net experience (and the sadly limited time I have for it right now). I like reading articles with many comments when they are thoughtful and informative; when they just consist of one or two threads started with tired arguments it is very disappointing. Right now the filter has only left seven comments unless I take the trouble to expand filtered comments: nice!
As a writer, I get your point but again life is too short.

Except I include a small change: s/Internet/LWN or Phoronix/

Sometimes I wish I could refrain myself, but I also find it impossible not to answer those comments.
