I dont know about you but I do not like reading 2,000 words per post on a single opinion from ONE PERSON and another 2,000 words from another.
I love succint, short and expressive posts. It reflects the writer's ability to use language efficiently.
I usually skip posts that are lengthier than your average news paper article. Not that I hate reading, i just basically dont have the attention span - especially when the topic just puts me to sleep.
