Is it just me, or do others find they can’t be arsed to read long posts? I start off with good intentions, but longer than a paragraph and I’m out of there!

YANBU it's especially bad if there are no paragraph breaks

Yes especially when they have an overly complicated issue ,with lots of confusing acronyms and say something like friend A told friend B something and now friend C it's upset .

With you all the (very long) way.

I was exhausted after wading through your post, and have had to lie down in a darkened room....

I agree. It's a result of the accusation of 'drip feeding'. OPs try to include all relevant information in their first post.

YANBU. That doesn't mean people shouldn't type them though.

I however, have the attention span of a.......Oooh look! A shiny thing!

It depends - where it's all in neat paragraphs, relevant and well-explained it's fine, but where it rambles & introduces stray people and situations that don't appear remotely involved, and has no punctuation then YANBU at all.

Nope. Too long for me.
Couldn’t get to the end...

I don’t bother to read long posts. I see them, my heart sinks and I scroll past.

If it can't all fit on my phone screen I'll generally leave it.

And ones that start "I'll try and keep it short" before running on to lines and lines of back story

Posters can’t win. They’re either too wordy or they’re torn apart for drip feeding.

weareallfuckednow Sat 23-Mar-19 19:46:07

I'm the same.
Keep it quick folks ffs

TheFaerieQueene Sat 23-Mar-19 19:47:37

I don’t read long ones either. I’m just not that interested!

Climbingahoneytree Sat 23-Mar-19 19:48:38

I don't read them if there are no paragraph breaks or it's complex e.g. friend one said that friend two is cheating but friend three says it's all harmless etc

ShadowMane Sat 23-Mar-19 20:15:06

theres a difference between drip feeding and going on for hours, i switch off sometimes

I'm the same. Just be succinct!
