Good point!Hi thereOK. You have a lot of insight and knowledge to convey, but your posts are usually very, very, long. That detracts from the message that you're trying to convey, because it simply gets lost in the verbiage. Some may have the patience to read and attempt to understand every sentence, but I suspect that most will not.
You really need to take note of the theme in the link. Can I convey my message in less words?
That's me -- I'm not part of the "Twitter" generation where I have to convey everything in 140 characters or less or even worse - the Facebook stuff.
The whole point surely of The WRITTEN word is that it can be perused leisurely and re-read multiple times.
If people don't want to read that's their choice.
Actually I wonder if one could learn even something basic like simple arithmetic if they were restricted to "Twitter" like responses only.
Sometimes the enjoyment of a load of people's posts and threads is not purely just on the content - but the writing style / content / wit (or lack of it) and all sorts of intangibles.
Writing everything in a Machine like and boring way just IMO loses half the fun and spontaneity of the Forum.
Respect to those who know and want to write properly.
