Even if this kind of post is ridiculous (and it's not), posts about how ridiculous this kind of post is are necessarily more ridiculous. You can tell what kind of thread it is without even opening it, so don't open it.
No. I came into this thread to answer a set of legitimate questions (and it's abundantly clear he had legitimate questions now). You came into this thread to complain about it. It happens all the time at forums like this, although rarely to people with 170 or lower, and is really tedious and unhelpful. It's clear what the thread is about-if you don't like it, just don't open it.The only people who don't have anything to ask that we can help answer have 4.0/180. Even if it's just for reassurance or anecdotes or general advice, a poster with 170/3.86 (especially one who was considering binding ED at George Washington) has every right to seek advice here.
