So yesterday I saw them referred to as footlongs.
Back-and-forth posts, where each next reply quotes the entire chain of discussion, only to tack on a single-line reply.
What’s up with those? Why not just quote the last line that you’re actually replying to, instead of the whole 12-deep discussion?
“Well don’t read them if you don’t like them…”
Actually, I don’t. But I still have to scroll, scroll, scroll past a dozen of them to get to some other reply that I might want to read.
Is there some value to doing posts like that? I don’t see it.
