I also skipped parts of a thread before (although it was longer and grew faster than I could read, I suppose blitzgirl has reason to complain though). What I don't get is not reading preceding parts of the thread at all. He could at least have read the first and last 5-10 pages, the thread is growing slowly enough for that. He could have searched the thread, the forum rules only dictate searching for threads, but searching the thread you're posting in is the least you could do to stay civilised when posting.
Most of the growth is due to people not bothering to search the thread and not adding anything new like Goranson. As mentioned before: this makes Goranson's issue worse, it doesn't improve a thing. The other point is that it's very rude to make people listen to you without reciprocating that investment. He could at least have read the posts of the people still active in the thread instead of doing the equivalent of putting fingers in your ears, stating your opinion and then making noise to avoid hearing others.
The 'G' may not know how to search another poster's posts.
I am sure I did not know that was a function of the Forum.
Not when my post count was as low as 'G''s is.
'G' does have a Low Post Count. Correct?
What does that Meeeen?
Is this an Internet Troll?
Is this an Experence Internet Poster from a Rough and Tumbler digital Society?
What do we know?
Is 'G' for Free Speech or Against It?
I have no idea. What do you think?
Freedoms always come with Responsiblities.
The Freedom to Speak comes with what Responsibility?
I thought I had the Freedom to Speak my mind;
Then sit my butt down and listen to Others!
Inside a Time Frame!
At City Hall or SomeWhere!
Very Rarely did I ever Speak.
When I did. I sat though most of the Meeting.
I listened to others. At Public Meetings.
I thought a lot of them were silly, at best.
It does not matter what I think.
I sat there and Listened.
Did you know many meetings happen before the Public Meeting?
When The People show up In Force, the Pre-Meeting Agenda sometimes changes.
That is Good for the Good Guys.
That is Bad for the Bad Guys.
How much do The People know?
Do they get their News from the Crazy as a Fox
Do you know why they say that? Crazy as a Fox.
When a Fox is hunting, they sometimes Lose Their Minds and start Jumping around and Twirling and Weird Stuff.
It catches the Attention of Anything that can see it. I have no idea how that serves the Fox. It, just, does.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
