    Yes.

    And lately, I've hesitated to start a thread because if you don't include every detail and give an entire list of examples in the original post, you are accused of "enhancing the story" to persuade others to support your point of view and get the answers you want to hear.

    The problem with that is if you include EVERYTHING in the original post, it would be so long, no one would bother reading it to begin with.

    Sometimes, or if the thread is one long sentence, I have such a hard time reading it all. So I won't try and comment on something I can't read. Not knocking anyone.

    When I'm on my laptop, no. But, it drives me crazy when I'm reading on my phone and I want to reply but typing would take too long! :rotfl:

    Yes, especially on my phone or tablet. I also have many more typos on a virtual keyboard so sometimes I don't even bother because I don't want to have to correct a bunch of words.

    Yes and I also don't ever reply to certain posters or post a reply with advice that's already been given enough validity or grief. Perhaps that's why I don't have too many posts :)

    I do love the Dis though!!
