Reason one: speech invites more speech. If I take the time to reply, I am opening the door to a conversation, and that requires time and energy, and hands on the keyboard. Speech is a form of action, an exercise of conscious will. Actions have consequences.

Reason two: Poor impulse control on my part. When I read something, most of the time if I want to say something, I want to say it then. However, I often don't feel I should make the time to stop and reply. I look at the roses but don't stop to smell them. Later on, I don't feel the urge to reply nearly as strongly because I no longer see the previous entry (unless bookmarked or sent to myself).

Reason three: eye aches and eye strain from needing new glasses. This bugs the shit out of me.

Reason four: Did you ever see the scene in the movie "Office Space" where the characters take a computer (or maybe it's a printer) out in a field, turn rap music on, and dance around it while pounding the computer with baseball bats? This is sometimes how I feel about troublesome computers, like the laptop I'm trying to use it at the office which still runs Windows ME and doesn't want to connect with the wireless modem. #%%#!

Reason five: the need to prioritize. If it helps, you are the number one person whose entries I read and the number one highest on amount of comments given. :)

1) yes.
2) yes^2. and, sadly, the more I want to stop and make a _thoughtful_ reply, the more I put it off until I feel like I can make a thoughtful reply... and the less likely I am to say anything.
3) eugh =/ :hug:
4) :heh: seen it, though I generally don't identify _that_ much.
5) I just brainstormed perhaps the best todo list system EV4R! It's on my list to implement some day. Really, I think I can just extend skwerms with a few extra datums and make it infinitely more useful in a practical sense! And I need it badly.

"the more I want to stop and make a _thoughtful_ reply, the more I put it off until I feel like I can make a thoughtful reply... and the less likely I am to say anything."

Think about it long enough, and you'll never say anything. It's a dilemna. :)

Best todo list ever, hmm? "On my todo list, I will write down make the best list ever. . . ." I wonder if that's how upgrades get started!

"like the laptop I'm trying to use it at the office which still runs Windows ME "

dats enough to make ANYONE hate the machine...

meh for ME

AKA mindless expanse masquerading as an operating system...

Re: here's the issue...
Windows ME makes me want to be very violent toward the machine. :)

The computer specialist at the law office is working on it now. It's nice to know that it's the operating system, not me, that is giving out the wrong signals.

Who knows these things?

I know the feeling all too well.

I'm in for round 100, I promise! :)

Just to swell the ranks. And the rank.

I sometimes leave messages open for weeks, knowing I should say something but not knowing what. It's often only Mozilla's inevitable memory leaks that save me.

it's a shame session management has gotten so good.

I'm using oldschool Mozilla, so I don't get any of that. :P

I can't believe that article exists.

That is, bar none, the stupidest entry for Wikipedia I have read in weeks.

Replying takes time and thought. Auditors have an incredible ability to abscond with any of those two that they come across.

Ooh, another reason not to reply! It might get you stuck with someone trying to guilt you into spending money! Hey, I'm a spammer! WHEE! Yeah, I suck at this guilt thing. ;)
