Default Read the responses!

New Gripe - people who obviously don't bother reading responses to the original posts.
They post basically the same response as in the previous post, without adding anything new. E.G. the "no pictures" thread. One poster says you have to get your photo taken for security purposes, further down another poster says the same thing. In a thread regarding bringing an "iron". Several people responded "no irons, fire hazard".
It doesn't add to anyone's knowledge just repeating the same thing. It doesn't add to anyone's knowledge just repeating the same thing. Get my drift? That's my gripe and I'm sticking to it!!! TTFN Jennifer

Right on Jennifer ... that's happened to me many times. Guess they're just trying to see how many postings they can make which is pretty darn childish ... and a complete waste of everyone else's time.

Or its just lazy,,read two or three I get the picture,,,no you dont! Read the post thread all and all the reactions, , get the flavor and then comment on either the bigger picture or having takin it all in. The individuals response.

Comment and debate in todays society for some, is slotting into a "drive in" and "drive out," mode, as they cant be bothered with anything else that presents having to read and think.

That,s all good Jennifer, but you know what I really hate?

Why don't people read the whole thread? They don't add anything new to the conversation but repeat what others have already said.

What Thomas said......me too......I agree........that's right.......

Sorry..I actually like your post and *might* have something new to add, but Banker's bad behaviour got me going. Guess he's a bad influence on me. (That's my excuse, banker, and I'm sticking to it)

Sometimes there are too many responses to read them all. Several of the messages have over 100 responses. It would be good if they could reverse the responses so the most recent responses appear first. That way someone who has read some of the responses could just read the ones they havent read rather than going through all of the old responses theyve already read to get to the new ones.

While I agree that more than one or two responses can be annoying, there are times (a few times) that people post at the same time. This should however only add and extra couple of posts. Maybe after reading this people will either not add additional posts or add new ideas/suggestions to the OP remarks.

Gertrude,
If you click the END key it will take you to the bottom of the thread and you don't have to scroll down.

If they reversed the order the post you read will be replying to the previous post you haven't yet read, which will be replying to the previous post you haven't yet read, which will be the previous post......................you get the idea?

What you'd be reading is a book in reverse order..................it wouldn't make sense.

Thomas
