It's Interesting how these guys start these epic fantasy series and hammer out the first few books relatively quickly. Then they start happening fewer and farther between. It's almost like they get attached to the world and characters they've created, and don't want to see it end. I think that is especially true in Jordan's case, maybe not so much or to a lesser degree in GRRM's. The similarities are interesting, even thought the series's couldn't be more different in scope.
Making new threads about poo that has been discussed in-depth is frowned at on just about any message board. It doesn't help that there's a huge thread about it still on the first page. It makes you look lazy, or like an attention *****, of course people are going to point it out. There's no point in getting butthurt about it just because you can't be bothered with simple posting manners yourself.
