READ BEFORE POSTING: The Curse of the One-Way Poster

Postby bloodjelly » Tue Sep 12, 2006 2:21 pm

This isn't targeted at anyone in particular, but I wanted to point out that if you expect to get responses to your post(s), it behooves you to respond to other people's posts. Yes, you heard it right. Other people.

Imagine a room with two people in the middle of conversation, when a third person walks in from off the street. Here's the scene:

--------------------------------------
Person 1 - Absolutely! By dissecting the intricacies of Bush's speech patterns and cross-referencing that with video of his early years...
Person 2 - ...we can come to the obvious conclusion that Bush has in fact been possessed by the soul of a lemur, and is being controlled remotely by Dick Cheney!
Person 1 - You know, you look so beautiful right now and I've been meaning to tell you this, Person 2...it's been boiling inside me for years now, and...
Joe Tool - LOOK AT THIS SHIT! I made this toilet paper roll into a doll.
--------------------------------------

End scene.

At best, Person 1 and 2 verbally beat the crud out of Joe, but most likely, they'll just ignore him and maybe call security.

I realize sometimes you join a message board and it's number 76 in your 234 favorite websites, and you forget to keep up your (hopefully enjoyable) responsibility of talking WITH other people instead of AT them.

Just so you know, though, don't expect to get posts if you never give posts. Imagine a room full of Joe Tools, each one concerned only with his own toilet paper roll. Would you want to talk to them? And this definitely does NOT just apply to Foundmyself. :wink: (I can see the More you Know NBC star flying by right about now.)
