I will admit, when the post is really long, half way through I start to skim. But if I find its something I want to comment on I go back and give it a second read. Mostly because it drives me a little crazy when I see someone ask a question about a post, assuming the topic wasn’t addressed, when there’s actually a whole paragraph dedicated to the matter. Don’t get me wrong, we all miss something sometimes. But I do agree that it’s been happening quite often.

haha I totally agree! It applies not only to WB

I work as an academic advisor for an online university and answer emails every day, I can’t tell you how many times the same student will send the same question back to me that I just answered. It’s absurd!

But like you said, I might be guilty of it too! I think sometimes our brains only read what we want them to!

Agreed with PP.  Keep it short you will get an accurate response.  I am so lazy.  That’s why.  And I think my opinion is more important than yours.

Yeah, sometimes I skim or the way it was worded leaves things open to interpretation. The way I see it, at least the person took time to respond to your post, we have so many people who complain that their questions never get an answer.

this made me laugh out loud.  My personal favorite would be: (and this is just me being sarcastic, no particular post)

Q: My finace’s shabby hair is keeping him from getting job interviews.  How do I tell him?

A: It sounds like you’re not accepting of who he is.  If you don’t like his hair, you don’t deserve to marry him!

I also “enjoy” how someone different asks for first dance song recommendations daily, on a new thread.

@kala_way: I am definitely guilty of skimming sometimes, but I can totally relate to feeling a little offended when an OP responds to a bunch of other posters but not to me! I always feel kind of bad afterward, like, was my response that unhelpful? Then again, I know I do the same thing with my own posts…it’s difficult to respond to everyone, especially when a lot of responses are similar.

@kala_way: Whew, can’t tell you how happy I am you responded to this…I was wallowing again that I was the one one who hadn’t gotten a response! Close one.

snicker.  i know i’m guilty of not fully reading things and have likely asked questions about a post when it’s clearly stated by the OP.  I DO notice, however, when people make either unrelvant suggestions or ask questions about things the OP has already explained.
