I wonder how you can track a conversation if you miss part of it? Certain nuances would escape me in that case. It doesn't matter?
An example: I see some people pop into threads and obviously haven't read enough of it to understand what is being discussed. Or the how or why. It's jarring to the flow from my perspective. Sometimes it's useful. Other times it seems rude and/or disruptive.
Some of the older threads are obviously too long to read in their whole, but I always appreciate when someone who hasn't taken/had the time to read the entire thread states that.
Just a courtesy of civil conversation, from my perspective.
Rethinking. Um, that example isn't exactly pertinent to ignoring someone by not reading them. Consider it a personal opinion.
But my initial question stands.
