    Or someone should make a thread about this kind of thread but from an already existing thread as those threads act to stop such threads from happening :P

    New add me threads are a sign of those who want to be seen at the head of the line. They don't want to simply add someone else, or review previous threads to see who is more interesting as a poster. In this day if instant gratification, they can't actually spend the time to do the work of "reading". Because we are not teaching reading anymore, we are teaching the heinous habit of skimming.

    They have actually done studies on eye movements for those reading on a screen vs. those reading a book page. In contrast to the complete page reading from a book, screen readers read in an F pattern. The first few lines, slide down to the center, the middle few lines, down the side, then the page.

    There is no analysis of content, not discussion of the broader context or reference to other "threads", it's presented as something to get done and suivre next. Sad, Sad, Sad.
