I Wonder If People Read the Stories They Are Commenting On

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 135 People

    Maybe Some

    I think some people do however I also think they have their mind made up before they finish the story.  And some before they even start reading i am sure.  If you want to test this just make a comment that would be outside the wide and shallow main stream of thought...

    Many Times...

    ...I read a comment on a story (usually not someone in my circle) and wonder if they have even read what I wrote.  It's like they are commenting on a different story, or something they imagine to have read. I won't list specific examples, but I'm sure if you've been on...

    I Skim Through

    Yeah. I skim through stories that I comment. One: The story is too long or I don't feel like reading it. Two: I  just comment without reading it. Three: I read the Title of the story and I read the start of the story and I comment. Four: ...

    Sometimes....

    ....and sometimes I just read a little bit, like the start and the end     But if it's my friends then I'll read it all the way through

    I Do

    I only comment on a story if I've read it.  It's incredibly rude to do otherwise.  How many of us have been talking to someone only to have a third person step in and comment on the halfway overheard conversation?  In my opinion, commenting on something you haven't...

    It's Actually Pretty Funny

     I have significant evidence to suggest that many people don't. One example: I was feeling silly a few days ago. I joined a group called "I Have Fallen Up the Stairs." I joined because it reminded me of an episode of "Lost" and so it made me laugh. For...

    ....

    I am glad that DW started this group because I know I read a lot more stories than I comment on and I always read the entire story.  I do not however always read every comment posted to it before I comment.  I try to read all the comments but then I get in a hurry...

    So, no need for bullshit, false modesty, or useless manners. Say what you mean and be who you are, and don't ask a question unless you want an answer. We'll geet on fine then.

    Everyone is unique in their own way. I try my best to not be critical or judgmental of others because sometimes their "back story" speaks volumes.
