I’ve also seen a lot of threads that look like this:
Note that the OP contains nothing more than a link. No mention of what the OP is upset about. No mention of how he/she feels about it. Merely a link, which the reader must click to learn about what has interested the OP.
I’ve often seen posts that look like this:
TITLE OF THREAD: What Will Be the Dominant Colors in Lipstick And Eyeshadow This Fall?
OP: I’m wondering what the dominant colors will be in lipstick and eyeshadow this fall. I don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb at my sister’s wedding!
Neither the example OP nor the example reply I gave contain any information other than the link.
I’d like to propose that we encourage SDMB users to post a summary whenever they post a link. That would be helpful to those of us with slow connections or who simply come to the SDMB for discussion, rather than just re-direction to other sites.
I humbly ask for moderators’ and other users’ opinions on this matter. If I’m out of line or otherwise all by myself in my feelings, then I’ll go have a slice o’ Humble Pie.
