I don’t think I’ve ever noticed someone say that…I need to work on my observation skills!

@accorn: Word!  I’m a believer in “if it’s too long for you to be bothered to read, skip past it”.  But it’s obnoxious when people just respond to complain that a post is too long.

You know what bothers me?  When people post on hot or popular threads that they think the thread has been “talked to death” and should be closed.  Excuse me, but what if someone doesn’t spend all day on WB and only gets to see a post after the fact but still wants to contribute their thoughts/feelings.  Like who are any of us to say when we should stop discussing something especially if the thread remained civil and interesting?

Hope that’s not threadjacking, just wanted to share something that bothers me on these boards. Smile

I actually have seen this twice today, so I totally see what you are saying! I usually just don’t even bother posting, just go onto another post.

I’ve noticed this too, and it bugs me. There’s no need to respond like that. If it’s too long, just skip it and leave the commenting for those who are more interested in reading the whole post. That’s what I do. There’s no point prefacing your advice or whatever with a mini dig at the length of the post.

I also really don’t like “Um, I didn’t read any other responses, but here are MY THOUGHTS!” 

I also agree with all the other PPs who dislike the “Ugh, close the thread”

If I’m not in the mood that day, I don’t even bother with auper long posts.  Because those usually require time and peace and quiet so I can read the whole post and comment accordingly.  If I was the OP and people said “wow that was long” and/or comment on something that didn’t pertain to the story, it would upset me. But this is an open forum and possibly some people just do that to work up the number on their post count.  OR, they just really have a short attention span.

But, in the past I have commented on some subjects that have been talked to death if I feel that there is some bashing going on in my opinion… like diamond bashing.  The moissanite vs diamond threads drive me batty, they never go anywhere.  If diamonds are being attacked (IMO), I will speak up.

Ok, that was long ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Just my 2 cents

I always click on (and usually read) 90% of the ones marked “LONG!” because I know they’ll be extra juicy, hahah.  I hate posts that have a melodramatic title like “MY LIFE IS RUINED” and the whole post is just “UGH I’m fighting with my SO! Any suggestions?”  I’m always thinking details girl!! Spill it!
