I don't know - couldn't' think of a better analogy. Darts score?


I'm sure Darts Boy will agree.

Although I fundamentally agree that posting on the Wordle thread everyday is a bit hmph it really is only about 7 or 8 regulars doing it, so out of however many thousand members this site has, it really is nothing more than a clique.

Personally find it a good indicator as to how hard it is going to be on any given day, as I come to it some 8 hours after the first few people have solved it on UK time. If everyone (all 7 or 8 of us) have done it in 3 or 4 lines I feel pressure to do likewise, adversely gives you a bit of a boost first thing in the morning if you can do it in 2 or 3 when the rest seem to have struggled a bit.

But as you say...

Edit: Upon review I believe there maybe 10 to 15 regular posters on the Wordle thread.

One would suggest that the exclamation mark implies an annoyance higher than the one flouncyhog wanted this thread to include.

I'm still amused that we got under his skin enough for him to start this alternative thread.

I'd suggest that HH needs to post our 'poking sticks' on the genuine thread rather than this fraud of a thread.

TBF. It has lasted longer than the Candy Crush thread which only appeared because James discovered that smart phones had game apps on them.

I have reviewed my annoyance level according to a number of criteria and the resulting score is indeed lower than that warranting an exclamation mark. I duly retract it.

And the shows that at each commercial break do a "coming up" thing, that seems to last about a minute, so when you continue to watch after the break you have already seen a fair chunk of it.

I guess it's all part of an hour show actually only having about 30 minutes of content.

Not annoying though.

hmph...

I have a higher threshold of annoyance than that.

Not sure anything on TV is worth getting annoyed about when you have a remote in your hand.

You'll have the Dos Pedro's telling you that is annoying, and you should post on the "Things that annoy you" thread....
