Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 135 People

    Many Times...

    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: ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
