One disturbing trend I've noticed with tech sites (including this one) is that there has been an increasing focus on sociopolitical factors, a la Slashdot. I really don't want to hear uninformed or poorly informed opinions on political and social happenings here and abroad. If I want that, I'll go to someone qualified to give me an educated opinion. So please, lay off the sociopolitical blurbs, will you guys? Just stick to what you're good at — tech.
(And, yes, I include things like 9/11 coverage in what I consider off-topic news for a tech site.)

Prototyped, I like a lot of the "non-tech" stuff posted here -- even on the front page. IMHO 3D is much better than 2D...
And I'm far from a kid; in fact, AFAIK there's only one older regular 'round here, but I'm not naming names.
P.S.: And where would we be without Mac-bashing? Huh? Huh??
...but it is Damage's site -- and he's long expressed the desire to run a political-commentary site. That's no secret.
Here at TR, you get tech and politics all at the same time (not to mention a healthy dose of other stuff)... and Damage gets the best of both worlds!
Seriously though, why are you so bothered by posts you don't have to read or comment on? It's not like the headings are confusing -- it's clear what you're going to see if you proceed. I'm serious, and curious.
(And BTW, the reason I posted the age thing is that your comments seemed to have strayed from just Ars in that post -- reread it and see what I mean.)
I feel that I've been cheated somehow — that my attention is being unfairly grabbed.
I was replying to Speed's post, point-by-point.
Uhhhhh... but Speed's post wasn't Ars-specific; certainly his first two points weren't. And TR doesn't pay reporters...
