  1. Someone says:

    If Central Avenue on the M is closed until August, it shouldn’t be classified under just “weekend work”.

    • VLM says:

      Please take this personally: Go away.

      Why are you obnoxiously telling Ben how to run his site anyway?

      • John says:

        He’s never going to go away. Being obnoxious on this comment board might be the only thing he enjoys.

      • Someone says:

        I am not obnoxious. I am merely pointing something out.

        • John S says:

          Actually, you are being obnoxious. Ben didn’t just cook these notifications up – they’re straight from the MTA.

          Every time you think of posting, STOP. Then, consider whether it’s actually on topic and will further the conversation in a practical and informative way. If it’s argumentative and picayune, keep it to yourself. Wait a few hours and see if ‘someone else’ says it (many people who follow this blog can think of clever analyses), then bring it up. Getting the ‘first post’ (forgive me Slashdot) is really not that cool and it gives the appearance of being a troll.

          Please also consider posting with an actual name, or something close to it. “Someone” really isn’t that witty, and it looks like you’re hiding something. Don’t worry if we can’t equate the ‘old you’ with the ‘new you.’ If the ‘new you’ contributes meaningfully to conversations, that’ll matter far more than your ‘reputation.’

          • Someone says:

            Don’t you think I know? Do you seriously think, as some other commenters do, that I actually comment without thinking about it beforehand?

            • Someone says:

              I’ll consider posting with an actual name next time around, also. (Actually, my real name’s Ryan.)

              • Chris C says:

                Just posting under a new name won’t help unless you change the nature of your posts – which is the issue people are having with you not your name.

                Read the advice John S posted above (and the advice I that Ben also posted to you on another thread) and then follow it.

                • Someone says:

                  Who said I was posting under a new name?

                  • Chris C says:

                    Are you being deliberately obtuse?

                    I never said you were posting under a new / real name (and you yourself said you were considering doing so) just that IF you did then unless you change the way you post then your posts will just continue to annoy others who are using this site.

                    Just take the advice freely offered and think before you post.

                    You are seriously spoiling other peoples enjoyment of this site by your large number of totally unnecessary and unhelpful posts.

                    If and when you do post helpful stuff it won’t get read because people will just filter it out because of all the totally unhelpful posts you have made.

            • Alex says:

              Obviously you don’t think long and hard enough. Just wait an hour before posting. If it still seems relevant then, then post.

    • Jerrold says:

      It IS logically included in weekend work.
      Since when does “weekend work” mean only one weekend?
      It includes anything that is in effect on the current weekend, even if something is in effect on more than one weekend, or at all times until further notice.

      When I receive my weekly E-mails from Transit regarding a few train lines that include the F, they have been saying that the Smith-9th St. station is closed. It has been closed 24/7, but 24/7 includes the weekend.

  2. tacony palmyra says:

    D train ALL DAY son. 24/7 express, never has problems. Best train.

    • Patrick says:

      Haha, yes I am quite fond of the D train (and its service patterns) as well (especially its 24/7 express service (which is particularly wonderful along Central Park West–that’s a nightmare on a local!)).

      ~Patrick @ The LIRR Today

    • Ryan says:

      Not “24/7 express”. The D runs local in Brooklyn during late nights and local in the Bronx during non-rush hours.

      • John says:

        YOU ARE LITERALLY THE WORST

        • Ryan says:

          To quote what John S said to Someone above:

          Every time you think of posting, STOP. Then, consider whether it’s actually on topic and will further the conversation in a practical and informative way. If it’s argumentative and picayune, keep it to yourself.

          Maybe you should heed his advice.
