Just wondering if you are like I am...I skip a post that doesn't give me much up-front information.

Actually, I get curious. If it's by someone whose posts I enjoy, I'd be more likely to look than not. If it's someone who posts political stuff or who can get snarky, I skip it.

Like TDuette I'm curious, but I may not respond if the location is not what interests me, And Yes, Political posts never get knowledgeable or entertaining.

I was told one of my posts was too vague, but yet I see other vague posts answered. I do look at vague posts to see what information they are looking for. Sometimes they are newbies, or like me, in a hurry, and don't word things correctly. Most people just need help and maybe don't ask "correctly"

I am not sure I know what you are talking about.

Well, for example, there is a post that says "Europe 2013." That's all it says. There's another one that says, "Need suggestions." Nothing more. Guess I'd like to know more of what info the poster is looking for. I always skip these "vague" posts.

I refer them to travel books. We're only here to complement previously garnered information.
