“Long” is relative…My post[s] may be “long”, but in comparison to what?…brief one liners, two sentence and one paragraph posts?
Sure, I agree…In comparison to most BC posters [past, present and future], I make long posts…But this is really only because the majority tend towards puny, small posts…
I’m a slightly different animal, and this is one of my peculiarities.
The specific post [in question] is a dwarf, in comparison to a lot of posts I’ve made [on BoyChat] in the past…I just have a tendency not to write even “that” long, so much anymore.
I’ve had people call some of my posts long, and the first thing I thought…”You think that is long?”…I could dig stuff out of my archives, that tower over this…a few likely rivaling entire chapters out of typical books [in length]…It’s a “good” thing I rarely saved my early writings here…a few of them were insane long.
While I’ll admit, I could have shaved away one or two things in the post [in question]…it was in response too [and a summary of, lest the unwary be inclined to object (because mwac seems so nice and good for the board, when they have their “white hat” on)] the troll mwac…The words were justified…a longish expo, for an exceedingly burdensome troll…
If you put it in a speech synthesizer set at a normal pace…it’s about the equivalent of two minutes in speaking…
…I’m fairly well into audio media…listen to podcasts and such [and have toyed with making my own, for years]…I also use speech synthesizers frequently…which likely makes my experience with BoyChat come off somewhat differently, from that of the rest of you [who probably read most of what you find here, with your own eyes]. For me…if anybody wants to understand me…then take into account that for me, interaction at BoyChat [and elsewhere on the internet] has been indistinguishable from other forms of conversation…I treat it the same…and a piddly two minutes is nothing…really…it’s nothing…especially if the words are worth expressing.
Some people expect short and quick exchanges…They treat this experience differently, from the way I do.
