This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

That's a local issue by Domer84
My folks have Comcast in Chicago and their channels are as messed up as yours. You basically have to memorize where the different channels are located in order to flip around.
Here in Mississippi, however, the channels are fairly well organized. All of our local stations, including PBS and WGN, are included in the first 13 stations. All but one keep the actual channel number that they would have on a regular TV. All of the ESPN stations are contiguous. All of the do-it-yourself stations are together as are the shopping channels. The free movie stations like TMC and AMC are close as are all of the Encore stations.
I have no idea why some local comcast affiliates have the channels so poorly organized.
