AIBU that I hate with a passion people that don't RTFT

It's the ones where the OP lashes out on their first post and we then get the full back story and their initial anger and distress often starts to make more sense. And then suddenly half the thread becomes absolute lazy fuckers going I haven't RTFT but you are twat. Usually within a few posts of the OP saying they are feeling suicidal or disclose past abuse.
Fucking fumes me up something chronic

Oh god yes; these people should be melted down for soap. It's so self-important - it pretty much translates as 'I can't be arsed to read the whole thing, but my little opinion is so vital I couldn't possibly not add it' (despite the fact that a dozen people have probably already said the exact same fucking thing).

I read the ops posts if it's a long thread. It doesn't drive me bonkers but I do find it annoying, it's like they are so keen to get in on the action they can't wait a couple of mins to post.
What's worse though is when they don't even read the initial op properly. I can't decide if it's a reading comprehension issue or sheer laziness. It's things like the op opens by saying " x is the problem and I've been there many times" and some twat says " well it's clearly as you've never been" . That annoys me. She's stated she's been, can't you even read the initial post?
What's the point of posting like that?

Yeah I cancelled the cheque and I ltb too lol
It just creates more crap for everyone to read if your not adding to the latest bit. And yeah obv the CFN odyssey doesn't need a full read.
Drip feeding is annoying but sometimes you need to blow up and your not always logical at that point.

Completely agree. There is a horrendous example of this today which will have a huge impact on the op. It's disgraceful on a support thread that some idiot can totally detail a thread and turn it into something it's not.
And also the posts that start "I haven't read the whole thread (or the ops posts obviously) BUT I am giving you my definitive answer to your problem right now....yes of course you are🤐

Not as bad as ploughing through a thread full of "shameless placemarking" posts.
Also, people who make a new post to correct an obvious typo in their previous post. If the post is still readable there's no need to post a second time saying that "anf" should have been "and" or whatever.
And those bloody biscuit posts.....
