Largely because there was no reason given in the post itself for why
it would be of interest to follow the link.

Yes, they can be; but the frequency of that occurrence is so low that
“I posted a rant” is a poor indicator of such quality. The barrier
for making a rant worthwhile to read is fairly high, and there was no
evidence of that in the post announcing it. So I found the message *as
presented here* to be useless clutter.

Your message, on the other hand, I found very interesting and relevant
in itself. Thank you.
