S.A.S.S (aka: short attention span syndrome)

    If you're like me, you might have a really short attention span. You might stumble upon a thread that looks interesting, but it's already on page 10. Quandary! The only way to deal with this is to read the single post at the very end of the thread and then respond accordingly. Or, another good trick, just read the first sentence of every post, as I do, thereby gathering just enough info to respond. To be honest, you will never know what's going on, and it will be evident to ppl reading your posts, but as long as you're taking part, that's all that really matters.

    If you have any other good tricks for participating in forum discussion without literally having to read the actual responses, please share with the group now... we will be sure to read some of it!

      Burying one's head in the sand is just as productive.

      Reading the responses is actually what one does in a discussion forum, fyi.

        How did I know you'd be the first one to respond?

              I would, but you only read the first line of a post, so what's the point?

      A newly discovered 10-pager? What I do...

      Read the OP.

      Then read the last post.

      Then start reading backwards. Amazingly it is just as easy as reading forward.

      At some point you'll decide...

      This thread is a goldmine and go back to the OP and then forward.

      Or not.

      And then you will post.

      Or not.

      smile

        haha, that's exactly what I do. Still, I would prefer it if someone would come once a page and sum it up, but of course, we can't always get what we want.
