LC’S and G.L.O.R’s, it has come to the attention of His Imperial Highness, and his duly appointed Officer of the Empire (Pacific Operations Command), that a goodly number of our patrons are given to this strange compulsion to utter the word “FIRST” when entering a new thread.
It seems odd to His Majesty™, since the statement “FIRST” contains no information that cannot already be identified by the numerical indicator on the page where said comment appears.
If you have a relevant comment to make, fine. If it contributes to the thread and topic, fine, in which case there is no need to claim “first”…this is about what you have to say, not how often you say it.
Be it therefore commanded, under pain of mockery, and a week of being subjected to the undivided and uncensored attention of Our Imperial Torturer™, that the practice of “FIRST” shall cease herewith.
By proclamation of a hot and very annoyed Emperor, as relayed by his humble servant.
