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.

[marinersk]: But I was looking for a more elegant solution. It appears noone online at this time is aware of one.
[LanX]: go to Nodelet Settings and click "All nodelets off"
[marinersk]: LanX++ LOL Yes, that is another workaround. :-)
[LanX]: strangely you can't disable the XP nodelet
[LanX]: But you can use CSS to hide it
[LanX]: and disoplay the data permanently in your peronal nodelet
[marinersk]: I saw that you could post it on the Personal Nodelet, but you have to provide the content also. No way to auto-populate it. Not that this would solve my distraction problem...
[LanX]: there are template variables to "Auto-populate" it
