Now for a completely different subject.....

Does it ever crack you up when you start reading your responses and you realize the person who is responding has not even read the discussion in full because their response has nothing to do with the actual topic? HEHE I have no idea what to say when this happens b/c I don't want to be rude and say something like "Hey, that's not even what we are talking about." But I had 2 responses like this on the same discussion....makes you wonder. What are some other weird things people do on here that either makes you laugh or just make you want to scream?

hi taface412 maybe I am a meanie but it irks me when people do not bother to read my discussion and make it evident by their response. I generally say youshould reread my discussion as this is not what I was talking about. the weird things that people do that make me want to laugh are the discussion that asks What is Life? help thats like asking you to say in twenty five words or less, what it means to be alive, and I usually skip these as I am not ever really sure what exactly they want.

I have experienced this several times already. It makes me wonder why some people would just post a reply on something that they did not really read. Or for some, they read but did not understand at all. Sometimes I do think that there are those who just post for the heck of it and do not really care if they responded to the discussion well.

Hello, taface412! I have seen this, and I have to confess that I have also done this. Sometimes, the discussion is so big, that you get tired of reading in the middle. You put your response based on that, and when you finish adding the tags you notice that there was a major question in the next paragraph, the one you didn't read! It happened one or twice, but usually I'll read the whole thing before posting my response. And it has never happened in any of my discussions. People are always answering them normally. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

The thing that makes me feel like I'm going crazy is when someone who apparently doesn't know English very well, writes a response that sounds something like this: "And the this go for are want of to me." I just made that up, but sometimes I get a reply that is a sentence of just words that make no sense together. It makes me feel like a little kid who doesn't know how to read yet. Lol.

yes it does make me wonder what the heck people are thinking when they reply i always make a point of reading the whole discussion as the title often does not reflect the subject well enough. i have had a few responces like that to my discussions and have also read many like that to other people discussions too
