I think one of the things that has led to some of the confusion regarding suspicions is the fact that E-hell itself has evolved so much over the years.
I was bored one day, and looking at some very old posts (2006 or 2007). Things that would immediately result in a locked thread today were allowed: Sheer vents, clearly labeled as vents in the title, for example.
Not that I am saying that this is a bad thing. It does show that E-hell is growing and evolving, and I happen to think that changes are positive. It is a little surprising, however.
