I couldn't agree more. But you're talking about clarity, not length. A well written article is designed to be readable.

So, size is important....but not everything. Wink

We need a troll-free zone. FPS, even the Coffeehouse isn't safe anymore.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

OK. But how do you know who is who until the deluge of crap comes down the line? We already have a No Spam rule.

Right now I think mmhm123 is getting really close to breaking it but that isn’t my call, the belongs to MSBB and The Starkbanhammerfuhrer.

RE: Walls of text in OPs
9 times out of 10, it's a theist who posts these epic OPs.

For the simple reason that if they don't say everything in the first post, they'll never get everything said.

It might also be a tactic for confirming their own beliefs... Write an excessively long OP, that nobody can be arsed to read. When no-one responds, they take it as proof that we have no counter argument.

If they really want to engage us in debate, they should create separate threads for their points (without spamming). And keep the OP to paragraph or two.

The Coffeehouse is not a troll-free zone. Beware scalding!

Hafnof's just done an epic post on Personal Issues. Sometimes it's the right answer.

Yeah, but his post wasn't the OP, now, was it?
Cool

Aren't he only troll-free zones the intro section and PI&S?

Very specific things go into those areas. What about the rest of us that want to talk and not be trolled? Did I miss another memo?

Troll free zone...on an Internet forum Laughat

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
