In all online forums, frequently we come across long posts. Indeed it is understandable that complex ideas and situations need explanations which tend to end up as a long post.

Many who browse forums as well as on maillists, have limited amount of time to read and review posts and emails of interest. This is simply a factual matter since many have daytime jobs and they spend time on Internet after hours. Many tend to ignore long posts due to time constraints.

In the above situation, it would be helpful for message posters to post a one para summary at the beginning followed by long posts.

Any thoughts???

Let us leave it as is now and allow the idea to sink in. Hopefully, most members would get it and implement it. It is more like the abstracts of scientific papers or executive summary.

How to implement this? Should we provide another area for long explanation and short one for the post? Or, we may just limit the number of words in the main introductory post. Let us think about practical ways of implementing this idea. Perhaps members will consider sharing their views on this idea.
