RE: Walls of text in OPs
AB,

Since you love quoting your storybook at us, a few relevant ones backatcha:

Quote:Proverbs 10:19 When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.

Matthew 6:7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.

Ecclesiastes 5:2 Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.

I don't think a warning is necessary.
A great wall of text can easily be seen from a distance, without having to read any words.

If you find reading to be a challenge then move on to the next thread rather than creating a thread to moan and grumble about it.

It's not that reading is a challenge. You're missing the point.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

The point being, if you don't like a thread, you can simply move on. You don't even have to spend time reading any of the words.

Just like you could've skipped adding comment telling people not to express themselves.
Like that?

I enjoy reading their incoherent babble. It gives me a good laugh every time. Very entertaining stuff.

I enjoy grumbling about people who are grumbling.

RE: Walls of text in OPs
When I see a wall of words I get the general jist of things, size up the person....are they nutso wacko's? Why, yes they are. Fuckit. Scroll.....scroll......scrooooooolllllllllllll.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
