Irks: Attention Spans

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous' started by bonesabre, Jul 4, 2012.

  1. Probably the one thing that has irked me most about the internet and our rate of technological advancement, is the degradation of attention spans of today's youth.

    Unfortunately, I come from an age of conversation. Of sharing ideas through stories rather than bullet points. Also, unfortunately, I'm somewhat of a story teller when it comes to something I'm passionate about.

    In an effort to keep the story out of it and just get the point across... When I tell a story about something I'm interested in (even trying to keep it informative, and thought out), it's very insulting to then be told by someone else "TL;DR" :(
  2. I would report their comment as "Spam":)
  3. Agreed... I tend to get long winded to get my point across... I understand skimming comments if you are new to the thread; but people should ALWAYS read the entire OP.
