This is a risky rant, but I am going to pitch it...

Why can’t people actually read a thread before posting?

I get it, some threads become quite long in the tooth. Sure, you might not want to go back and read all 80+ pages if you are late to the party and haven’t been keeping up, but maybe read the most recent 3-4 pages to be refreshed on where the thread is headed before jumping in? I mean really, how hard is that?


Heck at the very least maybe read the last oh, I don’t know, TWO posts?


Sucks when you be surfing the web, killing the time, and come across a suhweet thing that you want to share and then you go to share it because it is perfect for that great thread that has been on page one for damn near a year and then when you get to the thread you get all freaked out because the reply button isn’t there and your like “Da Fuq?” and then you notice the little padlock and realize someone done screwed us all cause they can’t follow simple instructions or are too damn self centered to see the contributions others have made before they just gotsta make their own.

Normally if a post goes over two pages I don't bother to comment on it. If it is particularly interesting then that may be a different story entirely.

Yup. Plus read everything Para Posts and view the Locked Threads so you know what to avoid.

Roger that.

Anybody want to talk politics?



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

I agree. If I come that late to the party, I think twice about joining in.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Or when the Karma has stipulations for entry and people don't even bother adhering to those. Nope, didn't read, just "entered" without even reading the entire original post. Roll Eyes
