I know that many times when we post we want to provide as much information as we can. In doing that we can extend our posts beyond where people will read the entire item.

Its almost like resume writing. Make it crisp and concise. Any more and you may lose your audience.

I know I am guilty of this myself. It seems to happen more with new comers and I can understand that they want to explain everything.

But two pages of a post with new paragraph idents, makes very hard reading.

  • Ron,

    Another thing that makes it hard to read and understand some of the long posts? .....

    No paragraphs, and no punctuation! That makes my interest wain fast! I've started to read some posts, but by line 10 or so of no ",.?.!"...and I return to the forums. Trying to figure out where one sentence or thought starts and end gets old! Equally when there is no breaks with paragraphs, I have a hard time keeping track of where I am in the post and return to the forums. Just food for thought. :)

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.

    But it is true. At least some periods and new paragraphs. I have a hard time follow things to begin with and a rambling run on post is impossible.
