"Turn Off The Firehose!" Ctd

A reader writes:

One of your readers complained about the volume of posts.  Please don't listen to him or her! I spend all day at work constantly updating my RSS feed of the Dish, and if more than five minutes goes by without a post I start to get anxious and switch over to Angry Birds on my phone.  At least when I'm reading the Dish it doesn't look I'm shirking my work all that much.

Another agrees:

As long as you post the occasional clip from Weird Al's UHF, you can post all you want!

Massive montage here. Another:

Good God NO!!!!!  I couldn't disagree more.  I'm a junkie - a DISH JUNKIE! You can't withdraw the stash now that I'm completely, irrevocably hooked.

Tell that reader to turn off the damn RSS feed.  She/he doesn't have to read every article.  I don't.  But, for those of us who refresh (and refresh and refresh and refresh) there's not enough content.

Or - even better - being away from the Dish for several hours during the middle of the day, I come back to my desk and log on - and the rush ... the RUSH as you mainline several hours of content while it invades your cortex:  The VFYW contest results, Andrew's latest rant, faces of the day, Mental Health Break ... oh, God, the rush is so damn good.   Soooo good. 

Be a good dealer; keep the shit flowing.
