90. I share that one and a whole bunch more

"Wait for it!"--No, I'm not going to watch a 40-minute video to find out what the fuck you think I should wait for. Tell me something.

"New poll: Fleming leading Waukebock!!!!!"--I don't know every D and R candidate for every office from county council to Senate in every jurisdiction in every state. Tell me who the fuck you're talking about.

"Wooleybong on Larry now!!!!"--When I read your post twelve hours later, Wooleybong isn't on Larry any more, and besides I don't know who Larry is or what network or show he's on.

"Did you see that?"--Maybe if I knew what the fuck you're talking about, I would know if I saw it.

"He makes a good point here"--Once again, I'm not going to watch a 40-minute video just to find out what point somebody made. Tell me what the point is and maybe I'll watch it.

Making me play "tweet detective"--If you just post a bunch of tweets that I have to search and analyze and go in and out and back and forth to figure out what the fuck the point is and how they're related, I'm not going to bother.

Four-paragraph "mystery meat"--If you post a four-paragraph excerpt that doesn't even say anything about your subject line or doesn't even say anything intelligible, so that if I spent ten minutes trying to figure it out, I might make sense of it, well, no thanks. The four-paragraph rule about quoting doesn't prohibit you from saying something in your own words. Give me a fucking summary or at least a key point. If I can't tell what the fuck you're talking about, I'm not going to waste my time trying to figure it out.

The "Amway curiosity approach"--I'm not going to read random mystery articles because some random person I don't know said, "This is so cool!"

"Click here" "Check this out" "Oh wow"--No, thanks.

Unintelligible nonsense because you didn't preview or proofread your post--If you don't respect me enough to see if your post even makes sense, I'm not going to waste my time trying to figure out what words are missing where or where one sentence was supposed to end and the next begin or what the grotesquely misspelled word was supposed to be.

The basic point: If you won't even try to communicate, I'm won't even try to figure out what the hell you're talking about.
