  • In the group I moderate, I read them all. In the ones I don't, it really depends.

  • I spend a lot more time on Answers than I do in any of the groups I'm a member in. I'm fine with short or long posts... it's horrible grammar and caps that I tend to skip past without reading no matter how long the message is.

  • I read what interests me, long or short.

    If I am not getting enough information then I will click to something else.

  • Ginger, I skip past the ones that use poor grammar, too.

    Dardenalla, I've read a couple from the same person that just don't seem to add up so I just move on to another post.

  • I read some of each. It just depends on the post or question. The ones that turn me away are the where the poster does not use the enter key and everything is all run together. In groups I hate quotes piled quotes till there are 3 or 4 posts all together. I also drop cat fights.
