One of the nice things about OEIS is that it is so easy to ignore the
uninteresting sequences. One only has to abstain from searching for them.

This does not really matter. Still they can help to bring significant
sequences to the OEIS. For example from

V. I. Arnold, Experimental observation of mathematical facts (Russian)

** 1,4,1,16,16,64,1,128,256,1024,256, [Offset 2, page 56]
** The triangle on page 103
** The center of the triangle
   0,36,68,96,120,140,156,168,176, [Offset 0, page 103]

Unfortunately my Russian is a little bit rusty. But maybe you can help?
