We have on here at least 8 members that bang on for multiple paragraphs on any topic thats started like they and only they know the answers to every problerm.
What i would like to know is what drives this need to tell everyone else how wrong they are and how right the long winded expert types are, is it a autistic thing or are they just trying to show off, this is the only website that i have run across this phenomenon on as most of the other sites people are just straight to the point with minimum of words used so im just wondering if its more wide spread than on here or not?
Every poster is different because we are not clones. No member is forced to read any post if they believe its off-topic, waffle, poorly written or any other reason. RP has new members coming all the time, so some people will repeat the same questions and yes the same answers.
The post/response may also reflect the back ground and profession/trade/skill/experience and general level of care of the individual. I for one cannot give half hearted short answers at work and normally expected to give technical detailed response or I get creamed/misrepresented etc.
So enjoy the diversification, read what you want, don't read what you don't want and enjoy.
