Okay - before I get to my "hit my one nerve" point, let me confess - I was guilty of this exact same annoying habit after first joining ATS not that
long ago. With that disclosure, here I go:
I get so frustrated at people who choose to reply to a thread without bothering to read the replies already posted. And I'm not talking about 5, 6 or
7 page threads or longer - I'm talking about maybe a couple of pages! I have frequently read replies which really add to the discussion - only to see
reply after reply that clearly didn't look over the additional information. In some cases, this really prevents the thread discussion from developing
I'm not talking about interpretation or opinion replies here - but replies which ask for "more" information - information that is already contained in
the thread. But I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir to a lot of members.
I want to sincerely say "my bad" to my fellow ATS'ers for this annoying practice, since I can recall being sometimes guilty of this myself when I
first joined. To you I ask, is it rude to post a reply response within another's thread that indicates certain responders could benefit from a more
thorough thread read? Or do you find this is behavior which is best ignored?
Whew - glad I dumped that off my mind - Thanks ATS
