What most people fail to realise is that not all of us have all the time in the world to read their 50 lines of posting no matter how interesting it is, I just do not have the patience to read all through and I suppose most people too, thereby missing some important points they offer. Can we all try our best to minimise our postings to few important lines instead of having our posting not read at all? Remember we dont live by the computer, we have other things to do.

too many words, did not read

Surveys show that people that type too much talk too much, people that talk too much dont make good lawyers, simple logical reasoning. If you dont want to be straight to the point,you can do what you like, its just mine and my mate's opinion.

If you dont agree to that, let's know your reason. Do not try and attack me personally, not that it make any difference.
Nothing is good or bad, thinking makes it so.

I'm on your side in theory, but its not a big deal either way...Its easy to skip over long boring passages.  I used this technique a lot on the LSAT...

Do you have a link to the studies?

Most of the articles that appear in print form are also published online...

Forgive me for being a bit skeptical but I think you are on to something...

Thing is, the survey was organised in my uni by some lecturers, the name of the uni will remain unknown as i dont want to disclose this information online. The outcome of this survey was conclusive of which i have told you. The talkatives were just all-mouth and without any fact. Mind you it was carried out on law students, in total 250 poeple. Printed in the uni newspeper, got it now?

Sounds like a relatively small sample size but I guess it makes sense.  Thanks for clearing that up...
