Without reading the entire post? I see this happen so often. People leave a comment based on the first line in an OP’s post and leave a comment that really doesn’t address the OP’s question or ignores important information that they’ve included farther down. I know some posts are really long but still (and I’m sure I’ve been guilty of this).
It always makes me think of a test my teacher gave us in grade 5, question #1 – Read the whole test before you begin. Last question – Do only the first and last question then sit quietly at your desk – almost everyone answered the other 20 questions on the test.
What’s your favourite colour?

but I also failed that test in 6th grade science class. As did 75% of the other class. I think we’re taught to read fast (with timed tests and such as children) and a lot of speed reading is skimming. I’m SUPER guilty of skimming!

And yah, totally guilty of that. Sometimes if the post title seems like an obvious question I just and answer that and don’t even read the post. Or I skim and miss important details. I just jump at answering quickly if I think “oh I know exactly what I’m gonna say to that!”

@LilRhodyGem: thought about making it super long just to see how many people would get to the end but I’m at work and I’m not feeling that creative at the moment (Which is bad seeing as I’m a designer…)

I used to be embarassed about my love of pink since I didn’t want to come across as a girly girl, but now I embrace it.

Blue! Any shade of blue, but especially teal/aqua shades and dark periwinkle. (Tanzanite and blue topaz are some of my favorite gemstones.)
What bothers me even more than that is when a Bee has posted for advice like two years ago, and then someone will go gravedigging the thread and suddenly it’s exploding with new advice for the OP, even though she is long married (or not) by now.
