Indeed, I posted this question in a couple of other forums--I like to adopt strategies geared towards absorbing information as quickly as possible...
I suppose that's nice for you, but have you considered reasons why many people can't be bothered answering forum posts?
Allow me to tell you what rubbed me the wrong way with your post:"Re: attention color whizes: xxxxxxxxxx"
a. Gratuitous and misspelled.
b. That which you claimed to know you didn't.
c. Your response portrays you as entirely thoughtless and self-serving.
Google is where one finds information to absorb. "People"
are real live humans taking the time to answer your questions. They deserve respect and consideration. Their time is valuable.
I won't answer a forum post if:
a. The OP has a history of not doing a reasonable amount of research prior to posting. Often this 'history'
can be determined in a single post.
b. If I get even a hint that instead of trying to understand, they're 'polling'
as if taking a vote.
c. I'm not fond of gratuitous salutations, especially if not spelled correctly.
I could understand posting on multiple forums all at once if looking for a rare something or the other, or even trying to sell something. But to gather a bulk of information to 'absorb'
when its apparent they haven't searched and read past threads, Googled the topic, or maybe even read their owners manuals.. is a tad boorish no?
