    i didn't vote. missing choices.

    sometimes you do, sometimes you don't.

    i have a tendency not to read long post because they tend to rattle on, saying the same thing over and over again.

    Re: Who Reads Long Posts ?

    Depends on the topic, format and poster, but more often than not, if a post seems to drag on and on, I skip through it looking for anything worth reading and if I can't find anything, I skip it entirely.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Depends on the topic, the poster, and how the post is formatted.

    Re: Who Reads Long Posts ?

    It depends.

    If Iím casually perusing a thread, with little intention of posting, I will probably not read all the long posts.

    If I am intending to enter the discussion, I will probably try to read most if not all of the previous posts.

    An exception would be in threads over 75-100 pages. If I post at all, it would probably be in response to the 1st post or a recent one...I don't have time to read 100+ pages of posts unless the topic really interests me.

    Re: Who Reads Long Posts ?

    I think my main problem is reading long posts with sentences in bold.

    I don't listen to someone in real life who yells or who tries to shove his/her opinion down my throat. I don't see why I should accept the same on a public forum.

    I have a feeling that those who write in bold have no intentions to debate. They are mainly here to make statements. Some call it propaganda.

    I usually skim long posts unless the person is responding to me or if the subject matter is of great interest to me.

    I notice that conservatives tend to use boring screed to make an inane point.

    Re: Who Reads Long Posts ?

    As I stated in This thread...

    1. Yes

    2. At times

    3. Certain long posts

    4. Almost without question

    5. Must be skipped

    6. For fear of a great headache

    7. That will assult your head

    8. As you try to read

    9. Through the entire thing

    10. Only

    11. to

    12. want

    13. to

    14. slam

    15. your head

    16. against a ****ing wall

    17. because it takes 3 hours

    18. to make a point

    19. that is absolutely

    20. retarded

    However if its a long post by someone whose routinely proven to make substantive and interesting points and are willing to have an actual conversation rather than just a one sided attempt to speak talking points, insults, and rants then I'll tend to read it.

    Those inbetween the ones that make me want to put my head through a wall and those I love to read I generally will skim, see if it appears interesting, and if it does read the whole thing.
