Default "I haven't read all the way throught the thread, but here's what I think"

Can we all agree that this is simply an asanine thing to say and/or do?

Honestly, if you haven't read through the entire thread, it means you don't have all of the facts at hand. Reading a few posts and attempting to Sherlock Holmes the situation does a great disservice to:

1) The original poster, who is trying to get everyone's informed opinion on the matter.

2) All of the other posters who DO actually gave enough of a damn, read through everything that had been discussed up until the point that they added their own feedback.

If the thread is insanely long, and your time is too precious to read it, by all means, don't feel obligated, but please have the courtesy to abstain from posting advice or comments that display a breathtaking ignorance on the full history behind the thread.

Isn't it considered to be "trolling" if one doesn't read full thread but tags on to end and then goes on to another thread and does the same thing?

Links17, a lot of specific points have a history behind them. I've been seeing a lot of advice issued on a point that would normally be excellent, but is completely useless given the context.

But what if that specific point is interrealted to an array of other points earlier in the thread that would make that tidbit make no sense?

Part of the reason my threads are so long is because I spend half the time re-explaining the story/situation.

Meh, if the person replying reads the OP's posts and replies to those, skipping the other poster's posts, I don't think it matters so much. Especially if they are replying to one or two specific remarks.

So what your saing is if you want to make point make sure your point is a point that hasn't been pointed before? I think my point may have been pointed to previously in someone else's point. I'm so confused by this pointed discussion.

Please pass the popcorn....

Points about points detailing previous points aside, I'm more focused on the lunacy of original posters having to remind people of facts about a situation that they have already provided 17 million times.

Waltzing into a giant thread and issuing advice that is completely ignorant of core facts should not be forgiven just by tacking a "I haven't actually read most of what I'm commenting on" statement at the end.
