I wasn't entirely serious about the filters but that's a fair point.

I suppose what I'm actually saying is "Can we all downvote the more worn-out type of comments a bit more actively?".

Which now I'm come out and said it sounds overly optimistic. ;-)

Yes we can and I started by yours. Sorry not adding to the discussion.

I actually edited my top level comment immediately after writing it to try and engage more directly with the topic at hand and tone down the 'meta-ness' of my post.

Even so I'm slightly embarrassed that it's the top voted comment. I'd prefer it if a more strictly on-topic comment was above me.
