Re: Argh! STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT!!!! (Nerdrage)
Well, the first, I don't read as nostalgia. I read it as making fun of it, playfully. This entire run on JL has been full of some degree of self-mockery, some degree of the characters being self-aware almost. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. If something makes me chuckle while reading, I generally consider that a good thing.

ETA: I don't really come across any particular things which seem to repeatedly bother me. At least, not that I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe I'm simply not careful enough of a reader.
OTOH, there are lots of repetitive annoyances which come from msg. board posters. But that's a different discussion altogether.
