in thread Voting -- problems

I don't mean any disrespect, grinder, but this is one of those nodes I wish I could vote both ++ and -- on.

I want to ++ it, because I like the analogy of planting some seeds.

But I want to -- it, because it seems rather disrespectful to the poster. He /did/ do his homework before posting this. The question is quite simple: why does the engine not do this, instead of making me do this, which causes me to go to a lot of work, and fetch a lot of pages, and make the server put togeter things that I then have to parse. Wouldn't it be easier for the server to do this, and tell me?

I once asked this, and got a real answer: No, it wouldn't be easier for the engine to do this.
