That's a personal choice radiosky. In any public forum it is up to each individual to use their own discernment when assessing the significance and relevance of a contribution.
While a grain of salt is optional, it is highly recommended for the best possible outcome when seasoning one's views based on posts in user contributed forums.
Whatever your assessment of the original post, there is no doubt that it has spawned a thread that can be of great value to anyone interested in ODP submissions. That's the inherent value of an open forum system yes?
Personally, I find it's best to take what serves, leave the rest, and be of service wherever possible. (with various degrees of salting as necessary) ;)
