Why would somebody come on a site called overclock.net, and ask if anyone thinks that overclocking is pointless?!

Isn't it pretty obvious what people on here will say!? Making a post like that really is POINTLESS!

I didnt ask if it was pointless, i asked to prove a point. Every PC forum would say pretty much exactly the same, no matter how ironic the web site name is.
