yes it is the way it works for everyone else, you post what you  think is
important, bit I read what I think is important.  all people do that
subconcously if not intentionally.   I may already know what you think is
important, what I am looking for may be something you don't even consider

no that is editing, but if you post eye candy or other things then it was

no! but if you think it is important enough to be posted then the reader
has the right to EVERYTHING that is posted.

what you don't post, no one gets, but if it is posted, no matter how
trivial, then the reader has the right to determine weather or not it is
usefull or important
