ATS is NOT a T.V, You Have To Do SOME Reading....,
Originally posted by Silver Star
Well, in defense of the unfortunates at the receiving end of your rant, this problem often occurs because there is so little time for somebody to get their point in before someone else does.
Therefore speed reading becomes a necessity if one wants to get their point-of-view across without seeming foolish repeating the same thing a person did who got in 30 seconds before you.
Nine times out of ten, if you take your time and read a long OP in a considered fashion and then go to post your response, you'll find that someone has already beaten you to the mark - thus leaving you redundant to the conversation. So it's not surprising that aspects of the OP get lost in the desperate clamour to get involved in the discussion.
