I have been watching for a while and noticing that so many people are quick to ask a question that has already been answered in a message, that if they really took the time to read the message would have answered their questions in the first place. I have also noticed that there are more videos being used for news than the written word. I personally would rather read the information than have someone talk it at me but it seems to be the coming trend. I realize we get so many emails a day that skimming is a quick answer to the situation, I personally get over 2000 emails a day both business, personal and yahoo groups, and find myself skimming to check them. I try when I need to email them back and not ask a silly questions and take more of their time than I should by not reading fully the information that they first sent me.
I recently started a Machine Embroidery Design give away called “Quilt Block Friday” in stating the rules for this on the group I found myself repeating the same information for numerous posts and wondering again… did anyone really read this? In one case my original post was quoted and the question that was asked could have been answered if the sender had just read the message that they quoted. Amazing.
Anyway just my take on a situation.
