Well, there is an opening for a new Foo. So if you have these strongly held opinions one way or another, I'd honestly love to read them--perhaps in your own curated thread. I mean, I think part of the reason this thread isn't as active is because who wants to talk about a bunch fits that are generally regarded as good? No one, because it's boring as hell. But a ruthless "why this doesn't work" thread could be great--kind of an evil step sister to the Noodles thread.
One of the great improvements on SF is the decline of snark and outright cruelty since 'the old days', when beginners were slaughtered and when many threads used to quickly degenerate into really stupid slanging matches even between supposedly intelligent posters. I don't miss that aspect.
