Will you click on a related link in a question?

If I post a question related to something in the news... should I copy and paste the whole story? Or should I give you a link to the story? For my part... when I am on a site like myLot... I do not like clicking on anything which will take me to another site... unless I really want to go there. The fact that I am on dial up might have something to do with that. So... the real question is... are you more likely to answer a question with the full story?.. or do you prefer to have a link to the story? And will you click on the link to go and read the story?

I would just rather read the whole story, this may be from myself being on dial up, I really just find it a hassle to leave the site...

I've created a few discussions before with links, but I don't really think it's a good idea. I mean, it is, but only when we write what it's about in short, and then add the link just in case anyone wants to check the whole thing. I guess it's the best way to go. People who would like to read everything will be satisfied, and those who don't will be able to respond the discussion as well.

yup, it's your dial up speed. i use to have that problem.although, my connection speed is not that fast at 324kbps (wireless) but it's serving it's speed purpose.i would go with the link rather than reading the whole story. i don't like reading long discussions.At least , if press the link and i see the header and some easy to read texts , i can go back right away and answer you post back.

I would prefer to have the main parts of the story with it. A link to the story would be okay as well, as if we wished to we could go and read the rest of the story. I am on broadband, so a link to the other story would not bother me all that much. I do understand your point about being taken away from the website you are on. Sometimes you can get distracted on another site, and then you are not sure if you wish to come back to the original site or not. A very salient point, my friend. Love the avatar, btw. (Even if he is really American - lol).
