People, community, lovey persons, people whom I love...

Okay maybe not that-


Read the op's of people who post, before deciding to make a comment!



:/


Don't just read the title!!




:/ :/


And if it's too much to read, move on.

I know. It's hard. Things are political. It gets to where you want to politicize EVERYTHING or wonder what someones political angle IS. If its not a political angle, than you just dont understand!! The beer makes things woozy, and hard to concentrate. I can say that right?? But. Just read the frickin op. Okay??

Rant out...

Yeah, there's a lot going on at once, this post was authored before you got to it, so if that contributed in some small way to my thought process, much apology. But it's not anything personal about you or me, I've witnessed all kinds of instant rush posts on ops and I felt like going on a rant. I'll probably forget it the next day or just bug off, the format of this board sometimes really conflicts with my personal style. It's to much like hard molasses. Again my opinion. Not anything else at all.

There! Doesn't that feel better?

I read the entire thing, ... and regret it!
(Go figure...)
The title said it all, as any good title would.
So your own demonstration opposed your premise!

Oh, don't get me wrong--I S&F'd ya for this post, as it has merit on nearly every thread that gets started on this site.

And I was just messin' with ya anyhow, as we all fall guilty to misunderstanding the intent or motive or meaning of a comment from time to time.

I'm with you on this thread--I can't stand those who half-read an OP and just start in on a comment. Willful ignorance annoys the piss out of me, even though I've been guilty of it a time or two.

So very very true... and it's not just here:

NPR Pulled a Brilliant April Fools' Prank On People Who Don't Read


"Why doesn't America read anymore?" NPR asked on Tuesday.

"We totally do, NPR. Shut up. We read all the time. We're reading your article right now!"

Facebook commenters screeched. But they didn't read the article. If they had, they would've seen this...


Of course, it's just as frustrating when folks do read the OP but not the source link. Some folks just want to believe what they want to believe and are determined not to let pesky little things like truth and facts get in their way.
