13. So, you not only didn't read the article, you didn't get the excerpt.

Finally, everything falls into place.

The excerpt has nothing to do with the author dating the other person in the story; they were friends discussing what it was like to be gay and Jewish and finding a date with non-Jews.

Unless you are trying to trap people in a "gotcha," I think you should post the parts of the article you are addressing, and not rely on readers going to a link and trying to guess what point you're making.


That doesn't make any fucking sense. I posted the four allowed paragraphs, and didn't say anything about it. I responded to your remarks. You are the one who didn't read the entire article. You are the one who didn't understand the excerpted part, not me. If there is a "gotcha" going on, it would be on your part as you didn't read the article, and thus didn't respond to the question I posed when I could make sense of your conclusions.

It shouldn't be an out of the ordinary expectation for someone who posts to have read the article. Perhaps, you could let people know you are only interested in the excerpt and didn't read the entire article. For the record, I rarely post an article any other way than I did here, that is to say, I almost always post just 4-5 paragraphs of the first part of any article, and I rarely comment in the body. I do make exceptions, but for the most part, I follow the format laid out in LBN.
