We've got trouble, my friends...
That's right, trouble right here in the main forum.
The trouble I'm talking about is people reading a subject title and hitting that first, oh-so-tempting "Reply" button. They end up posting opinions that make no sense in context with the original post. Then they look like a fool with their pants on the ground... (Damn ear worm...)
Here's a perfect example:
The OP puts forth a sensible plan for people who are considering a move to operating a business full-time. A plan that could save a lot of stress and heartache.
The thread is filling up with posters urging George and his daughter to "go for it" and posters telling him he's foolish for giving up his job. Obviously, neither group actually read the original post, just the subject line.
It's the online equivalent of not listening to the other person before you answer them.
And it's downright disrespectful!
Discussion is fine, having an opinion is your right...
BUT BEFORE YOU HIT REPLY, READ WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE REPLYING TO!
[End of rant. Back to regular schedule.]
