I see people do this every now and then, and I just don't get it. Chances are, if you're starting new thread on an Internet forum, you want me to read it. However, if you tell me that it's long and perhaps boring, I'm less likely to be willing to read it. Furthermore, most of the posts that are labled as long are anything but--at least by my standards. If you know me at all, you know that I can post long threads. For instance there's this thread and this thread. Now I consider those posts to be long, but I don't label them as such, because I want you guys to read it, or at the very least, click on it. So give. What's the story here? Why do people do this?
