  • Usually. I figure if they take the time to type it out, they actually need the advice.

  • Usually yes, I sometimes post long questions because I really need answers so I do the same for others. The only time I pass on them is if the spelling and/or grammer is so bad it can barely be understood.

  • I have a short attention span with long emails, posts, etc..so no. I usually skim or skip. I don't want to, but it just isn't possible for me to read it all.

  • yes I do, because I feel that if they took the time to explain, then they really wanted you to understand their situation, and thought the explanation would help.

  • Sometimes. As long as it's in paragraph form, I'll read it. But it's it's all blocky, no punctuation, or in all caps, I'll skip it.

  • I try to read through it because they have taken the time to type it all and explain their situation and are really in need of advice.  Some things you can't put into one or two sentences
