Before it switched to this whole approval system, OTC generally frowned upon threads that opened with just "link, discuss". I'm wondering why this policy isn't in place throughout the whole message board.
I'm aiming my sights squarely at the Video Game board, where far too often a thread is made with a link to a video/outside website, and no information present in the OP. A bit painful on my phone, which will let me open normal pages but doesn't support video. A lot more painful if I'm browsing on my Kindle, which doesn't support opening web pages in another window or tab.
