People that know you don't need to rinse are "lazy"?
Rinsing dishes before loading the dishwasher can do more harm than good.
Today's advanced detergents are designed to attack food particles left
on dishes. "If there isn't food soil, they tend to attack glasses,"
says Edwards. "Some glasses are more susceptible to this kind of
attacking than others."
Sounds a little fishy to me.
But rinsing when you don't need to is a waste of time, water, and energy.

They come out nice and clean. It seems to me people that wash
them are wasting their time and hot water/energy, doing unnecessary
work. I just scrape off anything large, that's it.
On the other hand, I've seen people who practically wash
the dishes clean by hand before putting them in the
dishwasher. That's nuts to me.
I'd say it's more than a little fishy. The vast majority of
dishes are only going to have food on a small portion of the
surface. To rely on food covering the dishes to prevent
damage would be nuts.
Are you taking lessons from Stormy?
Why can't we get back to leaving posts that are actually relevant to a.h.r.
alone and just answer the question? Why does every thread have to end up as
a bashing of one political side or the other?
We have the OT designation, why not use that for non-a.h.r comments?
My leaf blower was acting funny and almost immediately the thread turned
into an Obama and Reganomics discussion thanks to Stormy. Here's a question
about a DW feature and the thread immediately turns into a liberal bashing.
OK, we get it, some of you guys have strong feelings. It used to be that
the threads could get some legs and some advice actually offered before
they went off track. Lately it seems that the very first responses are
completely irrelevant to the question asked.
Yeah, yeah, I know...if I don't like it I can leave. I'm aware of that
option, so no need to offer it up.

use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to serve several billion

global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and
optical networking technologies."
Nothing in that definition even remotely explains the rationale behind
someone reading a simple home repair related question and responding with
comment in which they either express their own political views or bash
My question goes unanswered, but you know what? I'm not really looking for
an answer. I just hoping that perhaps I can plant a seed that might make
people think twice before hijacking a thread right from the get-go.
I've been reading a.h.r since the ’80’s. Others have been here even longer.
Back in the day, a.h.r. questions were responded to with relevant
suggestions and advice using essentially same internet that we use today.
You can't blame it on a technology, you can only blame it on people. It's
people who decide what to type and it's people who decide whether to hit
send or not.
I admire your hopeful nature but this sort of "hijacking" is a deliberate
action meant to provoke conflict by people that enjoy watching people argue.
They're clearly not here to help or to learn, just to make it harder for
those that actually do want to assist others.
My psychologist friend says they are subconsciously trying to recreate the
conditions of a bad childhood where their parents were likely arguing in
front of them incessantly. They take a perverse comfort in seeing people
fight that most normal people can't fathom. For them, it's a sort of very
sick "I'm home again" feeling that brings them perverse comfort. Sort of
like Anthony Perkins in the movie "Psycho." It's actually very sad.
As Dan E. has pointed out, there's one way to deal with it - the killfile.
Sadly, no matter how many seeds you plant in sterile, poisoned ground, they
will never grow.
How long has Malcolm been at it?
Every time I post recommending a kill file, I get emails asking how
do you use a kill file.
Sorry but there is no cook book answer.
Kill files are a feature of the client software you use to read Usenet.
It's my understanding that every tool that can directly access Usenet
has a kill file feature.
I don't even know if Google Groups or Homeownwers hub has an equivalent.
Assuming your client software is up to the task, you'll probably find
the feature under a label like "ignore".
Hope stinks infernal in the human breast - no, that's not right. Hope
*springs eternal* in the human breast.
In the kingdom of winter, there is no hope. No, wait, that's not right
In the kingdom of hope, there is no winter!

Fortunately now I only see that sort of misogyny when someone I haven't
twit-listed responds to one of the women-haters club - which reminds me of
"Our Gang" and further proves that most of the anti-social posters here are
still mired in an unhappy childhood.

Hah, Derby, this cohort, instead of disregarding the few OTs that show up -

out so they can [select verb with sexual nuance] the author for posting an
