I think the distinction here is these are pet peeves. They are things that might irk but we acknowledge is one way of doing things. We're never going to say to a person "Don't use reversals" we're going to just talk about them behind their back on here.

I am with you on the readers who use their deck as a chance to just talk about big cosmic ideas and not relate to the question at hand - the Thoth does seem to have cornered the market on this.
