Start doing sudoku that should help.

No, it's your choice, obviously.

But not all things - particularly problems - can be adequately described in ten words or fewer grin Sometimes it's a really complicated problem that they really need help with and it can't be condensed to a few words for the easily distracted.

But when they end up trying to make it short, only for something to be missed out, people then choose to leap upon and beat them up over for 'drip feeding'

So I guess they can't really win.

Ooh I know.

But I'd probably read them regardless of how long they were if they didn't have that in the title grin

I like the ones that say long, unless of course it's all in one paragraph <unreadable>

Some of them aren't as long as those who don't say anything though.

It's nice they're giving a warning, but I'd apologise at the end of the OP that I'd blathered on too much rather than risk putting anyone off who's not in the mood for trawling through loads of text.

The ones that say "long - sorry" usually aren't especially long. Or not too long, anyway. If a poster is thoughtful enough to put the "long" warning in the thread title they usually turn out to be thoughtful enough not to waffle on with unnecessary detail.
