You can toss them where the sun don't shine if it sees fit, doesn't mean it's going to work out to your advantage.

Perhaps instead of filling this thread with unneeded garbage, try posting with something that is on topic and isn't a jab because you couldn't post a proper rebuttal statement.
There are two logical points I found paramount from reading this thread. One being that one can successfully setup a system that allows infrequent water changes and the other being that water changes are a necessity for some.
ReefingMadness showed his point that he has a successful setup that requires infrequent water changes. Not many people will or can do this type of setup thus they will require more frequent water changes.
The point here being that it is possible to maintain an aquarium without doing weekly or monthly water changes. There has been very little knowledgeable debate throughout the entire thread and I find a majority of what has been posted to be highly misleading to users that will potentially read portions of this thread without reading the entire thread to get the full facts.
There are 3 types of people in this thread currently, the one that prefers frequent water changes, the one that prefers infrequent changes, and the idiots who don't know which one is which so they decide with the one who has the most followers.
Feel free to take your "stabs" at me if you wish, I will surely take them into advisement.
