that's always the classic response...."who is forcing you to (fill in the blank)".
it's never that.
its merely an observation that LONG-WINDED responses will get lost in translation and never sustain interest.
And not sure I understand about Marines and sending food? Strange response.
It's a legitimate question, though.
Nobody forces anyone to read anything they don't want to on this forum (or so the theory presupposes).
It's an open discussion in an open forum with users discussing the software they use and the company that makes it, and how it impacts them, and one which anyone is free to take part in and no one will be indicted for declining to.
And I imagine most take the latter option.
Saying it's "merely a an observation
" that long-winded responses "get lost in translation
" (into what?) and never sustain attention is a matter of opinion, and one that doesn't hold that much weight when and if one considers the original question asked and honestly answer it to themselves.
To anyone who's not interested in the discussion, the length (or brevity) of the responses is a moot point.
And to anyone that is, they still have the freedom to exercise their right to skip right past those "long-winded" responses or ask for clarification if needs be.
The rest of it was merely an attempt at levity - granted at your expense - but still.
I view people who complain...or rather,...who "make observation
s" about the "long-windedness" and length of responses in open discussion forums in much the same light as I view people who moan about the TV show they're watching and how awful it is, as they're sitting on their couch with the remote control in one hand and the TV channel guide (do they still make those?) in the other.
Now THAT seems to me to be the strange thing for a grown-up [censored] person to be doing.
But maybe that's just me.
EDIT : .....and this week, on today's episode of, "Unnecessary censoring by an overly-aggressive comment-board system"™ (which only makes things seem worse by implication)
, .......we have......
"...a grown-up [censored] person"
Where the censored word is A dult.
I suppose the fault is mine for redundancy.
