Some Posts are to Long

Categorically repudiating every line of a person's post is fatiguing to read, and can render a conversation redundant to some followers. A rambling post can overly-expand the conversation, drift from the main argument, and end in a non-conclusion; potency and impact are lost, and the main point risks becoming moot.

It's possible to succinctly summarize the main points, offer rebuttal - with supporting evidence - and conclude. Additionally, utilize breaks in text: during breaks, the reader can grasp arguments/concepts as differentiating from one another, and fit them into an overall statement.

So: In short...

That was a pun. : )

I agree that some of the posts can get too lengthy...but if I come across one like that I simply pass over it once I get the main idea.
