****DISCLAIMER**** I only read the original post so my opinion wouldn't be tainted.
I am a OCD when it comes to control; personally I'd LOVE to have the ability to delete frivilous threads or posts but I can't so I live with it. I regulate myself by trying not be annoyed with threads/posts that bother me. One Word Posts use to bother me here in the cafe' for the longest time. I would seriously AGGRIVATED with them. Then I decided that it wasn't a problem SP members had, it was ME who had the problem, so I stopped caring about one word posts.
I have set myself free!
I just don't care anymore and SOMEtimes a one word response is all that's needed but if that one word reply makes that poster look stupid I now laugh rather than get ticked off and with this paradigm shift of mine I find myself laughing more and more because there are a LOT of stupid and non-relevent one word replies here in the cafe'.
As for in-depth discussions (about whatever) here in the cafe' we do have them and they may not be plentiful but they are here, you just have to stick around long enough to see them.
Again, this use to be a pet peeve of mine but no longer since I can't do anything about people posting for points only, oh well, I had to put on my big boy pants and suck it up. I suggest others do the same.
Now, as for posting a reply without first reading the original post, c'mon, there's just no excuse for that. I often times title my posts in a misleading manner just to see if people actually read my original post and the intelligent and refined message boards posters do, the others don't, it's just too damn funny to see the replies when they have NOT read the original post.
@Healthy4uni: I can totally tell that one-word replies bother you but I should warn you about sending private messages to members who have started one word type threads and ranting at them about it, those members can and most likely WILL report you and then you can get kicked off of SP for harrassing other members that way. Please read the SP guidelines. Thanks.
