Again, why is the "fascinating"?

Sure if it was the first 17 dozen times that Japanese bidders were paying huge sums of money for parts most of us threw away at one time or another it should be "interesting", but this is something that has been going on for YEARS. With all the good folks that have bailed over the years because of too much traffic wouldn't it be nice to not comment on everything we find "interesting?" If you need more social contact in your lives might I recommend going for a ride, or if stuck in the office join the IBOB list too. Sorry for raising the noise to signal ratio.
