Am I the only one that's irritated when someone posts a few words and a link to click on...sometimes it's just the link?

Sorry Kingfisher I don't mean to be rude just voicing my opinion.

Can't say that it irritates me but unless it sounds really interesting I won't bother clicking on the link.

The purpose is to let the website tell the story, not me. I am not a journalist. I just thought the story was interesting, especially considering its just past the 20th anniversary of the other big FBI shootout in Miami.

All I am saying is a little more background on the link would be nice.

Or a few questions, a funny/controversial/stupid comment etc. Basically anything to help get a discussion going and encourage people to add a comment.

Well that's titillating enough for me, arresting the *guards* .... apparently at least one of them didn't want to be arrested.

Me too. If it's worth posting it's worth a few lines of comment/explanation.

It's just another example of the SPAM/junk mail era, IMHO. Cut and paste, cut and paste, cut and paste. No originality, all cut and paste.

It wasn't a dedicated thread I think it was in response to a link posted by Vegas.

it doesn't normally bug me, but it is at the moment because every time I try to click a link my pc crashes (either on here or in emails - like the BE new post on a thread emails), . Grrr.....

guess I'm going to be spending a while backing up, just in case its something serious. Can't really complain though - I'm currently working on an IBM thinkpad that my wife "retained" from a job a couple of years ago - they asked her to, so she could help with handover to new guy if necessary, and she kept calling to ask if they wanted it back, and they never replied. c'est la vie Looks like I need to get my hand in my pocket and buy something a bit more up to date.....assume it won't be as pricey as the last pc I bought - an HP Brio with a Pentium iii 5000mhz processor - that was pretty good in 1999! and it needed to be for the rather hefty price tag of $2600 (that was in Singapore $, but I think it was pretty much 1:1 at the time..... )
