"Why is this here?" posts are more pointless than pointless threads, imo.
No they're not. The point of "why is this here" posts are to ask why something is there; pointless threads literally have no points.
Might as well say "bump."
Can't say that. It's against the rules.
No you misunderstand. I'm saying that "this thread is pointless" type comments are pointless because you might as well have just written "bump." You don't add anything, bump the thread to the top, and if anything just give it more attention.
