That’s what Twitter’s for.
You limit the way people speak, you limit your ability to complain if you’re misunderstood. I make no apologies for longer explanations. I too chose to ignore some when I want to. It doesn’t invalidate what they have to say. And my freedom to do either doesn’t make me any more or less intelligent.
I happen to strongly agree with these points, that Scott made as well as others in addition to the “quote.” If you want to bleep 140 characters or less and/or tie in a number of web links; that you would rather have other people read, then speak your own mind or post your own opening opinion on the topic within your original post, then a forum is not the place for you. A forum is a place for thoughts, ideas, and discussions without limitations, free speech ~right!
While I am new here, I am not new to forums of any form or topic. I personally enjoy reading through threads where others commit their own ideas and thoughts (this is what brought me here,) rather than base ideas on what others research or by posting links and asking others how they feel about this. Mine as well have a discussion about Politics, just before you go that direction please make sure to mention whether the topic is liberal or conservative, so we can plan our responses ahead of time. I am certainly not going to apologize to anyone about what I write and if I do not add a paragraph to my post, then it is unfortunate for you to have skipped over it.
