Is saying someone's stating the obvious really classed as abuse (have always said "abuse" not "insult" is the appropriate term, as insults are taken not given) these days? Shame if so.
The opening post in this thread is stating the obvious - that reply was stating the obvious. That fact was pointed-out on the counts of both posters, don't really see why "really Captain Obvious?" is any different to "Thanks for informing me about that." Is it because a noun was involved and "captain obvious" is seen as name-calling?
IMO this thread serves no worthwhile purpose. Is that abuse now as well?
