I don't. When I really sit down and think about long posts, I realize that long posts are really very fun and exciting. I like to sit in front of my computer, my fingers racing across the keyboard, and type a good, old fashioned long post. Maybe it does take up a lot of space, but in the end(at least for me) they contribute to the community. Long posts usually have ranting. Most people dislike ranting. I really am not sure. Sometimes I sit around and ask myslef if ranting is good or bad. While ranting often goes on an on, which is not good, it becomes a long post, which is. But are long posts really good? Or is this just an idea put into my head by aliens. Hmmm, I wonder. Sometimes things are so hard to decide. I think I will go with your posistion now. Long posts are long, boring, contain rambling and ranting, and often encorouge drug use. Things like that certainly aren't good. I have suddenly come to reject long posts, although for a long period of time they were dear to my heart. Sad, Sad long posts. They seem so far away now that I have givin them up. Oh well. You won't be seing any long posts or rambling and ranting from me anymore. Nope. It's not gonna happen. Even if you gave me 100 bucks I wouldn't make a long post! Nope, not me. Even if you gave me a million bucks I wouldn't rant! So if in the futrue, you have a desire to see a long ranting post from me, you can go look for someone elses because I HATE LONG ENDLESS POSTS! I will now sing a song about long posts:
<BR>Long posts, they are so long, they go on and on. Long posts, I NEVER post long posts. Long posts are ok in emergency situations.
<BR>Ok, so maybe that was a bad song. I apolagize. I don't sing very well, and I don't sing often. When I do sing, I sound like a seal being ax murdered. Or maybe a Whale being ax murdered. No, a whale being ax murdered would make too deep a sound. A seal being ax murdered makes just the right sound! A whale just isn't right for that situation. Speakingof ax murdering, murder is a bog problem in this country. It's so sad. A man might get murdered, and his fammily becomes poor. They live out on the streets, and die hungry and cold. The murderer might even get away with his crime. Did you know that a person is murdered every minute? Actually, i made that statistic up. I lied. Lying is a big problem in this country is also a huge problem. See, I lied just now! I lied when I said a person is murdered every minute. I lied just now to prove a point. But some people lie because they have to! They are compulsive lyers, and they can't stop, even if they wanted to! Isn't that absolutly terrible! They probobly will never have any freinds, and their fammily will dessert them. The people should be helped by the government. There are also people who can't stop making long posts to be sarcastic against Coasterman2k1. I am not one of them. O wait, I lyed in the last sentence, and this whole paragraph was a lie! HA HA!

I like nice Moderate posts, posts that just go on forever and ever by one person just take up too much time for me too read. Also, short posts are kinda cool too.

<BR>What do you think mods have been doing with a lot of religion stuff? Oh well.
<BR>I hate long posts. Takes too much time to read them, and usually it is a rambling paragraph. I'm gonna stop now, before I begin to ramble.

My post about Cedar Point that I wrote last month was long because I had so much to say, and because I wanted to give a full account of what I saw went on at the park on that day <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif"> It would have been even longer if the park had been open till midnight on opening day. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

I agree, if it's interesting, it's ok for it to be long, but NOT endless.

you guys are abseloutely right, long posts are horrible and they are hard to read and anyone that would ever think of writing a long post should be ashamed of themselves because long posts are irrelivant and most of the time they are boring and they say the same things twice. And they say the same things twice, but no effense to those of you who DO write long posts, but you really should be ashamed of yourself and go see a long post therapist, or go ride a rollercoaster, that always works for me. You know whats really good? its called a toasted cheese, its like a grilled cheese, except it only takes 2 minutes to make. you toast the bread and then put a slice of american cheese on it and put it in the microwave for only 15 seconds! you should try it, its my own secret recipe. what were we talking about? oh yeah, long posts, you long post people make me SICK!
