I'm almost ready to put on Ignore those who post links with no context

especially Tweets.

And links to videos with no context.

Please, folks.

1. yes. My pet peeve. This is a discussion board. At least give a one sentence comment or

description for what is being posted...

And, while videos are great, sometimes reading two sentences is faster, and that matters for a lot of us--especially on a break from work.

2. Also one line posts about live TV which only contain pronouns and no names or titles whatsoever

I'm not a mind reader. I don't know what channel the writer is watching or who was speaking or what they said.

3. It's is always nice to have some context.

Many browsers (or security settings) don't display tweets, so a plain text version is always welcome.

I almost always ignore a post that has a link to a video without any description.

7. Some people are interested in communicating...

Some are interested in hearing themselves talk or seeing themselves keyboard.

8. Too early in DU to do it? --- I went about 19yrs never using Ignore until recently.

And the odd thing is that now it's done it's over a relatively minor irritant, but one of those who will never quit.
But there's reality to the straw vs camel's back. And gotta say it's been a relief.

9. And posts with no text, but not warning about no text. What a waste ...

10. I have been known to have a tweet in a post

take so long to load that it looks like the poster put up a link with nothing else for a good minute or two (and that is a long time when you're trying to pick up as much as possible as fast as you can.)

I realize different browsers act differently, and even the same browser can act differently on different computers, even when the O/S is the same. And in some of your examples, the let-down and frustration is the fault of the poster. But I wonder - that may not always be true.
