Do you skip the questions that are marked "long"?

Usually I don't even read them. I know, I'm lazy, but really I would just rather get to the questions that don't include an essay.

  • Nope, 9 times out of 10 I'm on here because I'm as long as they interest me I'll read them.

  • I do if they don't have punctuation.

  • Nope, I actually like those questions more because they usually contain more details and you can give a good answer. Short questions tend to get a lot of complaining from the OP because people read into the question.

  • I don't avoid them because they're long... but I do avoid reading 6" blocks of unpunctuated, uncapitalized text.

    I don't want answer questions bad enough to wade through auto-spelled word errors and confusing narrative. I'm sorry, to all the people relying on auto-complete (sometimes the word choices are hilarious, but mostly they just interfere with understanding) to spell things --sometimes technology is great and often it is worse: at least bad spelling makes the word choice obvious.

    Because I'm lazy. And quite happy about it

  • Yep. And if they don't say they're long, I skip when I find out. I just don't have the attention span to read - or post - such long questions, lol. But I always bump them.

  • Sometimes but I do skip once text speak starts.

  • Only if it's about something I might find interesting. If it's family/boyfriend/babydaddy drama, I will usually skip it.

  • At times I do.

  • I skip them too! I skip the ones I open and they are long. I really has to grab me to keep me.

  • Depends on where they are posted
