    It totally depends on the writer. But there have been times I have spent several mins. reading a long drawn out post and walk away thinking WTF? It makes me mad at myself that I read the whole thing. Another thing annoys me is when someone writes a hugh long post when it could have been said in like one simple sentence.

    If it weren't for the character limits, I would have accused you of not knowing proper protocol with being a jackass on a forum, Tucker.

    The correct way, ladies and gentlemen, is to say:

    tl;dr

    If it is a personal story about the poster I'll read it, but only if they are credible. I always get here at the tail end when everyone is becoming redundant, so I skip the long posts 99% of the time.
