Furthermore, I am of the opinion that Table 10-2 should be destroyed

Furthermore, I am of the opinion that you need to freaking quit dropping this opinion on the end of every comment, completely regardless of whether or not it has any bearing on the thread it's in. This is like the 5th one I've seen. We freaking get it, you don't like the existence of 10-2. Kindly give it a rest. </quote>

This is a rhetorical tool I borrowed from Cato the Elder. The very point is to repeat the tagline continuously, to remind readers that this is an important topic without forcing a discussion on the subject each time.

I must say I'm surprised at how effective it has been. Originally, I didn't intend to create separate posts about this, just use the tagline as a reminder, but I seem to have inspired @DM_Blake to open the Pros and Cons of Table 10-2: Skill DCs thread about it, where the debate has been quite heated, but also constructive. Both Pro and Con has had good arguments.

This board does not have automated taglines. I'm inserting mine manually after every post. Using taglines in forums is normally automated, and I thought most people would have developed selective vision and not see them anymore. Since you do get annoyed, I'll consider dropping it, at least as long as we have an ongoing discussion.
