I'm sorry
    #2743567 - 05/29/04 05:06 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I hate to do this to everyone, but I have to ask. Please break up your paragraphs. I can't read long paragraphs. Okay, I can, but it takes immense concentration.

I don't have time for that much concentration for each post. There are a lot of posts that have long paragraphs. For each post that takes concentration, it takes extra time for me to read the post.

I feel like I am losing out on learning from each of you when I can't read your posts. I so apologize for this. But please, couldn't you please just hit the "enter" key after every 3 or 4 sentences?

See, I have ADHD. I have belonged to ADHD forums in the past, and the same complaints would be made over long paragraphs. I know there are other ADDers here, and they probably have the same problem.

I will tell you something amusing:

On these other forums, different people, etc. involved, there would also be complaints about the colors of the fonts being used, the size, shape, etc.

See, people with ADHD are pretty smart. But, they also have trouble reading stuff that is written with the wrong color and size font. And with paragraphs that run on and on.

I tried a while back asking people to break up their paragraphs, but then I decided, when no one did, to just ignore the paragraphs.

I realize now that I am missing a lot. I know this is my problem. But I am going to now beg. Please. Whoever reads this. If you post, please break up your paragraphs.

So that this doesn't get moved, let me interject this: How does ADHD affect your life, with the paragraph thing that I just posted about? Do you have ADHD?

I don't think I've ever told you to phuck off, have I, Ed??? 

And I'm not going to, now.  :grin:

I can't read long paragraphs either. That's why it's so hard for me to finish a book. A paragraph that goes on for pages usually ends up unread.

No I don't have ADHD, Frog.

Did you know that Mark Twain's "A tale of two cities" has the longest sentence in printed history. It's this giant sentence that spans several pages. It would be hell for you to read it...

I don't really have ADHD either.  For me, it's just a control issue.  :grin:

It's funny the things my brain can handle, and those things which it can't. If I am reading a book, I "know" that I will be reading long paragraphs, and my brain assumes the position.

But on this forum, I'm usually reading and posting for entertainment. I don't want to work for it.

So, if the paragraph is really long, I will just skip it. I hate that, because then ultimately I come to a post that is made in response to a post that I didn't read, because it was too long.

I'm actually embarassed to have to have created this thread. I think I am pretty smart. But I feel pretty stupid asking people to "please, make shorter paragraphs", when I am an attorney who has to read letters and documents all day.

I'm glad you made this post, it gives me a platform to make my plea...


Everyone, please disregard proper grammar and spacing when making your posts, please lump everything together into one giant sentence/paragraph.


I tease of course.


It is funny how your brain will assume the position for different situations based on what your expectations are. Like when I go to work, my brain flatlines...

Ed, again, I'm not going to tell you to phuck off.  :grin:

Everyone else, if you disregard proper grammar and spacing, that just gives me one more reason to disregard your post.  In other words, don't listen to Ed.  :grin:

What do you do for a living, that your brain "flat lines"???

In my job, my brain is geared up pretty much all the time.  It's pretty intense.  This forum is supposed to be "fun" for me.  That's why I can't read the long paragraphs.  I could,  but FUCK, I can't.

Interesting perspective, Ed.  Let's change this thread into that topic:  Does your job dull your brain or enlighten it?  Or, "when you go to work, are you a flat-liner?"

Or, "What makes Jack a dull boy?"

:grin:

No schitt, man, my brain would flat line, too.  Holy phuck.  No, let me say that correctly:  Holy fuck!

Let's make your job more interesting.  Let's imagine that the boxes are "boxes".  And you are "loading" them.  :grin: 

I'm so bad.

a) I think everyone has ADD, to some degree. I think ADD is a label given to one end of a variant scale of conditions. (Meaning that everyone has a bit of ADD, but some have it worse than others) I used to think I was "one of the ones who has ADD".. I can't stand trying to read long paragraphs on here either, and my attention span for just about any activity is usually short. I have tons of hobbies, because I constantly want to try to "be good at all these different things" so to speak.

b) My brain flat-lines when I go to work.. I work at 7-11. But I'm planning to quit soon, when I can..  :kodama:

As much as I hate to say this, I agree with Frog, I can't read the long paragraphs either. :grin:  I'm just rude & scroll right through 'em 'cause they take way too much effort for me.

And I have the ultimate flat-liner job right now - all I do is enter numbers in a computer & try to look busy while I fuck around on the Shroomery.  My days are going by so fast 'cause I don't really think while I'm there.
