    I get annoyed when a thread title is longer than one line. I've seen a few doozies over the past week!

    Am I the only one whose eyes glaze over before I can get to the end of the paragraph-length title?

    I am sure I am one who posted at least one of those doozies over the past week ... icon_redface.gif ... sorry to make your eyes glaze over.

    And I am really envious that this is able to constitute a problem in your life. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    I think my prize winning title was for the vid of cow slaughtering and it was long to include the warning for those who wished to avoid that kind of thing altogether.

    Just out of curiosity, how long does it take for your eyes to unglaze?

    Your eyes really did glaze over. It has my name there in the "Started By" column.

    But what difference does it make who started it?

    I have to agree with art_smass.

    After you posted that one Caslon, I think one or two others copied, so I hold you responsible icon_evil.gif

    If you do it again, there will be serious consequences icon_lol.gif

    Just joking.

    Try and keep them shorter icon_wink.gif

    I hereby absolve anyone on RJ who felt an obligation to read long titles in their entirety from so doing. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    But I cant absolve anyone of the consequences if they skip reading them.

    Caslon, don't feel bad. If they don't want to read, let them go to A4A or something. I think more of a problem are copycat threads of the frigthfully unoriginal "guy above you thread." Can you take the guy above you was the first I remember, but lately it's been would you kiss the guy above you, rate the guy above you, what do you like about the guy above, would you bottom for the guy above you? (yes). Enough already RJers, think of a new idea!
