Certainly I am not alone, or am I the only one that is annoyed by people installing a "2nd" for a second line of content instead of elaborating just
a little bit on what it is they are replying with? I am not annoyed by 1 line posts, to the contrary I would rather see 1 line of quality than a
second line of drivel. It is just the lazy attempt to meet posting criteria by adding the "2nd" that drives me crazy.
For those of you who do this, do you think a mod will see that and think "oh well, they say they have a second line so it must be there"? If you are
conscious about how much you are typing then surely you could type a little bit more if you are afraid of having your post deleted couldn't you? I
highly doubt any mods actually enforce that rule unless you are going around blowing up each thread with 3 word posts or something, I certainly have
never had a post removed for 1 line over almost 8 years of posting. I am not sure why it bothers me, I think that it is the attempt to skirt the
policy with such a poor excuse for a second line. From now on, just leave it out and post your original thought without the "2nd", you will be fine
I can almost promise you
Mod, any comment on this? I imagine it annoys you too sometimes. I mean it can't possibly factor in on your decision if you are in fact deciding on
whether or not to slash a post for only having 1 line can it? I would think if anything it would make me want to remove your post when I wouldn't
normally just because it is so annoying.
You aren't fooling anyone you 2nder's!!!
