I understand the thought process behind your thinking, but it has flaws.
- it assumes that other, later, people will read it, which is unreasonable due to the length of the thread. besides, those who complain won’t google anyway.
- you don’t set yourself a limit.
for your efforts, to make sense in the long term, it is vital to stop repeating yourself (when the next guy comes along), and instead linking to older posts of yours. we have bookmarks, and they’re awesome! that helps filtering out people who don’t want to listen (they won’t care reading), saves you a gigantic amount of time, and stops redundancy.
in the end is it not bad that you do what you do. what’s missing, from everyone here, is that th3y stop being reactive. so far, everyone is completely reactive, and no one tries to actively get this to stop. of course, most people s3e no way for that, but there are ways, and that’s why i step in and want us all to group up and have a nice talk, in real time and off the forums (maybe with cacao or wine ). a nice talk about our options, the situation and how to fix it.
it takes effort , but that’s better than being a forum “slave”, until the inevitable burnout/bitterness hits. then they win yet again. they’ve burned through a lot of people over the years, which turned the old forum to a zombie, and the new one will suffer the same fate.
