Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

But there are comments that are more substantial, informative, well-argued, than others.

Maybe, but I have noticed that a funny one liner, even a not very clever one) gets often more 4s than a longer, substantial, well-argued comment...

Although you might always answer that my one-liners are better than my long comments...

Nah... They're not... But note I said "funny comments" just after "substantial, informative, well-argued". And I wasn't "rating" them in that order... :-)
