A Good example of an OT post on here part, having nothing to say about the message, her ego requires a sarky comment about an obvious mistype just to keep the troll going.

It’s SNARKY btw, I am not trolling you, I read your posts and some are quite informative, however they are usually too longwinded and take the subject matter on sort of “sideways” and then filling it with unimportant details that add nothing of interest. Furthermore, the misspelling and interjections of your beloved catalán turn an interesting post into an eyesore.

Yes, it was a mistype.  Another one. 

I can't recall a post where you didn't constantly stumble over the English language. 

Acceptable, if English is not your mother tongue.

Unacceptable in the days of instant spell check.

Goss, you're a teacher.

Your standards should be better than this.

The spelling/gramatical or simply mistype are because I do not bother to edit as I consider net posting as a conversation, not a form of publishing, so consider the message more important then the academic rules, and rechecking to me is a waste of time.

When I criticize others for such, I always do so after recognizing the message to which I am referring. My objections to most crits come when the responder ignores the message.

As for length the solution on your part is simple, either don´t read or skip the parts you find not relevant, some people find them interesting, and posts are not necessarily just for the Reading of one specific person. There are three reasons for the length I can think of:

1. added stuff anticipating a further response or question, especially when my subject is controversal.

2. an incentive to go deeper and expand on the initial subject.

3. in many cases stream of conscious, because I save my posts, to add to my research, because ideas come to me that I had not thought of before.
