Default Read the Entire Post

(With apologies to Luanne R)

Isn't it amazing the amount of people who will jump into a thread and not have any idea of what they are speaking of? Or maybe they speak of something that someone has done but have not read the post completely and therefore, miss the geist of the subject itself?

I am referring to those who do this in seriousness. I can understand, and even participate myself, in trying to lighten some subjects with a well aimed "poke in the ribs" just for fun.

So, if one is going to "flame" someone else, be certain to read the entire thread before lighting the torch!

Very good advice!

And to take it further, read all the posts in a thread before replying to the original poster. The question might already have been answered.

I agree with everything you said, fat people with dietery needs should with the help of the ships doctor, be pointed towards the salad bar.

And all kids should be confined to cabins

Sorry, what did you say?

On page 4 of HIH you said that this would be a good thread to post. I stole the idea.

I thought you were talking about me not reading the whole thing!!!

I have been guilty of it before too. I try to always understand the OP before I respond, but sometimes part of it sticks out, and that is what I zone in on.
