See that shift key down there on your keyboard? Use it, please. Use it correctly.

There's a lot of traffic on this board, and I don't have time to read all the forums and threads I'd like to.

I certainly don't have time to squint at posts full of long, rambling paragraphs where the poster doesn't have the courtesy to indicate a new sentence with a capital letter. Or proper names.

Hey, write your posts the way you want, but I'm not going to read them any more.

Actually, I haven't been reading them for weeks. I'm just not going to pretend any more.

And for God's sake, be succinct.

What's even funnier...

If I thought threats like HConn's worked, I'd issue one to people who quote a twelve-inch post in full and follow it with a three-word comment. I spend too much of my day downloading what I've already read.

Here, now. There are no threats in my post.

And we have more than one shift-key challenged poster here. I'm not thinking of anyone specifically.

Three seven, what's that a picture of? I don't get it.

Not just one. There are a few habitual twelve-inch-quoters around. One of them has shown improvement lately.

Heck, I thought Reph was talking about me. LOL..

I look at it like this:

It's just a message board, folks, read it or don't. There could be complaints all day, but who the hell wants to read those? Not me..
