When I had just joined Backyard Chickens in 2015 I was tagged after posting a message by another person publicly posting he had just said that within the thread after a few years I still ignore that person but also do not want become them myself.
It has become a pet peeve of mine to be posting in thread only to find 40 posts after where is seems that no one has read through the rest of posts but has copied 10 other posts almost verbatim within the thread..
I understand that we have become an instant gratification society with
the advent of smart phones that often are smarter than some us
The purpose of this article is to kindly ask one and all stop and read back if you have nothing new to add that would be a benefit it seems some do just post to post…
With that all said when someone has just joined this fabulous site yes one all should encouraged to welcome that person.
Try and view the first messages please if it is more than a month since a post have been made it should be closed, if you must close look to the person that started it and tag them do you want to close this thread would be appropriate ?
