ILM is big and unwieldy enough now that doing this seems sensible as a way of a) directing the casual reader to good stuff and b) maybe drawing in new people who will say good stuff in their turn. Of course part of the appeal of ILM is always in the banter and exchanges, and filleting it for ‘intelligent’ bits inevitably misses that, but there must be other people who simply don’t have time to read all of it.

Since I want to ultimately cut down reading it as well as give up posting, and because this thing will work better with more people doing it, and because there’s no good reason why my quality filter should be the prevailing one, I’d like to ask if anyone else who’s a regular reader of that board wants to contribute. It’s very easy – just cut and paste when you see something quality, credit the poster and link to the thread. Email me if you’re interested.
