It drives me nuts when someone doesn't read the article and then asks a question (or makes a comment) that would not have been needed to be asked in the first place if the person read the article.

"Why is blah blah like that?" or "No, I don't think it's like that" and sometimes I want to shout "READ THE GOSH DARN ARTICLE!!!"

Most of the time I'm not posting big long articles so I don't see why people skip reading the article & just rely on the excerpt from the article????

That's just the thing, most people don't read.

There was this one time the public bathroom at work was out of order so a sign was put up on the door saying it was out of order. After the 10th person asking for the key to the bathroom we switched the white paper to a neon pink paper & made the font even larger. Did that help? Nope. People still kept wanting the key to the bathroom.

There have been tons of other times people have ignored a sign right in front of them. It made me want to smack them upside the head.

ROFL!!! I have to wipe the tears from my eyes you are so funny /end sarcasm

I know you are trying to make light of the situation but can't you let someone vent? If you were venting I wouldn't respond in a way that invalidates your feelings. I'd let you vent & even validate your feeling(s).

Sorry mate, wasn't trying to suppress any of your steam. I was just trying to accentuate the absurdity of what happens and how irritating it can be, thus contributing to the validity of your pressure release. I do feel your pain and agree completely.

Kind Regards

I can understand when it's a thread that has 57 pages and you don't want to read every single page but at least read the article and the first page of responses.

Read the link????

Ridiculous!! I refuse to be intimidated by facts.

Opps, sorry wrong thread but it's your fault as you didn't add a link!

I read the title. I didn't skip right to the end. I didn't even read the OP. I kind of knew what it was going to say. I read the post about the sign on the bathroom though.

Meanwhile, next time put a sign on the bathroom asking for someone to plunge the toilet, it will make them stay away.

Funny enough, many people "read" the article and substitute their own words, beliefs, conspiracies and hearsay, so it's pretty much pointless to begin with.

It reminds me of people who vote and don't even know the issues, which is how we got where we are now.

Alas....

A little place called Ettamoogah, just down the track from Yackandanda. They land biplanes on the roof next to holden utes parked haphazardly across the corrugated iron.

Even the rabbits smoke cigs there mate!

pronto knows it well.

Forget reading the article, don't you know you can just form your opinion based on the thread title without having to bother reading anything else? Sheeshe people, learn to be more efficient.

JK, I'll admit I have been guilty of this, and it is embarrassing when you realize what you have done. I'll will say that I am seeing this becoming more frequent with a lager percentage of posts per thread where it is apparent only a few read the article.

That ones bugs me too. It's even worse when you are talking & someone has selective hearing or inserts their own words in. I go bananas when that happens
