    i know i am new on here, but i do like to post and share.
    but now when you post people dont have to click on a post to read just hover over it.
    so to the thread starter it looks like no one is reading there posts and may get to the point of why bother.

    If the thread starter's post is rather short, they may lose some views due to hovering, but if the topic is interesting enough, people will click and post.

    The hovering preview only allows the person "previewing" to see a short excerpt from a post, so people can't see the whole thing through hovering.

    It's thoughtful of you to think of this, though. [​IMG]

    just to prove a point your post cant be seen so now peeps have to click to see it.

    I actually am guilty of hovering. :oops:
    Sometimes the title doesn't give any clues as to the content inside, so I read what's in the preview to see if it's something I could offer a comment on. I personally think it saves time. :) (And internet data!)
