to RTFT!!

And if you can't be bothered, then please, please, Please at least read the OP's posts!

I know many people post from their phones or use MN Classic, so they can't colour-code the OP's posts (or their own), but before I knew you could do that I always scrolled to find what else the OP had to say even if I didn't read every other person's posts.

Do people enjoy spectacularly missing the point? Do they like arguing for the sake of it? Or is it a sport to take a pop at the OP when she actually has a reasonable grievance?

So many threads like that these days...

I use MN Classic and I can colour code posts.

And you're right. I lurked on a thread earlier where the poor OP was weeping in hysterical frustration at posters' inability to actually digest the information she'd given them - I did feel for her.

I don't know what your problem is really, I use my phone and cant tell the difference quickly by colour coding OP's posts like on a desk top.

This is true.

And if the OP's posts can be colour-coded however MN is accessed, why don't people do that?

Or do they just like being able to give the OP a kicking anyway?

You can colour code the OP's posts? shock I've only ever used the app (which is rubbish btw) so may have to migrate over to the mobile site now I know this!
