Do u read all the lengthy answers on GAG?

I am very affected when people try to explain their points. since most of the time i skip them and in fact i have never bothered to answer anything in more than one paragraph

what do u think about such a lengthy and detailed writing..

  • If it's a question I asked, yes. Otherwise it depends how interested I am in the topic. Lengthy answers can be super helpful sometimes. Short answers can be very unhelpful.

    • your name reminds one of mine crush whom i did'nt confess my feelings..

      thanks for your feedback

  • Depends on the question and if I can really helped them out, if it's a rand or something that makes no sense then I probably won't and will skim through it.

    • so, it depends upon your taste.. whats your favorite topics.

    • Not so much taste but the question itself. If it is interesting, worth the time of reading and really helping and stuff like that. I won't read it all if I can't really help and won't write out false help or info.

  • If I feel like reading something, there's a change I read everything. When I don't feel like it, then the shorter the better haha ;)

  • I'll read lengthy answers in their entirety if (1) it's on a topic that interests me and (2) the answer is well-written

    • and do u write lengthy answers..

    • Depends. If it's a serious question that requires a serious and well-thought-out answer, then yes. But no longer than 3 short paragraphs. Each paragraph being as long as this one :)

    • intresting and i like listening over reading others thoughts..

  • No. If I see an interesting question and a LONG explanation I'll just base my answer on the first question on the title.

  • I read opinions from top to bottom without concern for their length. When I am not too interested in a topic or feel strapped for time, I favor long answers over short ones, as they tend to be more thoughtful and informative. The only exceptions are long answers with awful spelling, grammar, and diction. I skip those without mercy.

    • welcome white steve.. you have great reputation for making intresting answerss..

  • It depends. If I'm on my phone, I usually don't and sometimes forget to go back and read it when I'm at my computer.

  • It depends on the question. Some questions require long explanations or stories. And if I wanna get an idea on what others already said then I read the long answers. If I am not interested in the question, I don't read the long ones.

  • If it's from someone I know and like, then I do read them. And if it's not from someone I'm familiar with, I'll skim the first sentence or two to see if it piques my interest. And if it doesn't it succumbs to TLDR and I go to the next.

    • and what does it take to pique your intrest.. :P

    • Usually if something is well-written I'll be more likely to read it. And I'm totally not one of those grammar police types, but if something's lengthy AND incoherent, then it becomes difficult to really enjoy it.

    • thank u.. u sounds like my English teacher..

  • If they have an interesting hook or it's someone I recognize then yes I'll read it. If not then I may skim it for important points but ignore the rest lol

  • i read them if they are neatly set out (paragraphs, dot points, etc) or if the question/opinion itself appeals to me.

    • But, how u know i its non sense or wisdom without reading it.. ? )

    • I quickly skim through, and if it's interesting, I read the whole thing.

    • hmm...but i love reading experts answers on sexual questiosn..lolzz..

  • Depends on how interesting it is and how much it draws my attention. Can be hard to do, I have the attention span of like a 10 year old at times

  • Sometimes. Most of the time if it's a lengthy answer it's either a rant or some guy wanting to sound smart and regurgitating shit he's heard over the years.
