dad2bandm is on a distinguished road

It is nice to have "updates" though, on threads, so that is appreciated. I especially find it useful, when someone posts an update on their thread, to say "hey, here is my outcome" if anyone wanted to know.

dad2bandm, I think that is why this place is such a useful tool.... helping people cut through their own noise.

I totally understand what you're saying; my original bone was being picked with some of the folks who were lobbing advice that was ignorant of basic facts that had been made crystal clear by the original poster. As I said, it's fine if you can't read through an entire thread, but stating "I haven't read the entire thread but here's my advice anyway" has only added to the complexity of certain threads. If people don't have the time to follow something, that's perfectly fine, they just shouldn't be posting on that particular thread.

Just my humble opinion, of course.

It's practically impossible to follow some of the long-running threads on here. I know, I'm not going to wade through 15+ pages of a thread (or multiple threads), to try and make sure I'm up-to-date on someone's family law issue. Some people enjoy that...I do not.

I think it's really up to the original poster's to try and capture as much good info, concisely, as they can, to properly present their scenario, if they are looking for valuable responses...again, on an anonymous, online Internet forum.

I think poster's who need to rely on multiple long-running threads, to present their scenario, will have a harder time in court (if it comes to that), because it seems like they can't present well. Hopefully, they have a lawyer, who can. Are you going to comment to a judge, "gee, I already explained that in x document, page 255?"
Yes. If some of these threads were analogous to affidavits we'd be in trouble. Thank god for lawyers and thank god this is only a chat forum.
