(Side note: One thing I've noticed on this forum is people's propensity to use a lot of words, but actually say very little).
So are a lot of replies too verbose? If so, why? Is it a good thing or a less good thing?
I find my replies sometimes tend to become long. Part of the reason is I try to reply to objections that might come forth from my reply. So I attempt to counter objections before they are made.
I guess it's also somewhat difficult to predict what people will intuitively understand, so you might elaborate unnecessarily. Or perhaps it's just an inefficient way of translating thoughts to words?
In what ways do you find other members too verbose?
Why are you verbose?
Do you enjoy or dislike people who write long posts? (Perhaps it depends).
