    ...I haven't been here for a while, but I see a ''lot'' of members posting replies to my posts without using the reply button...and/or they are replying to other members' posts without using the reply button
    ...maybe you are ''upset'' with my replies? hahahhhaa
    ..also, some people try to sense [ahahhahahaha ] my ''tone'' in my/etc replies--sorry--you can't do that

    There are two sides to this. Some people just don't want to waste the bandwidth, let alone time, repeating what someone else previously wrote.

    Not so easy to do on a cellphone, as opposed to a laptop or pc, but I do it anyway, because I usually respond point by point.

    ..I don't understand---they want to reply to the person......?..isn't that what the button is there for?..there's only 2 buttons there--like and reply
    ..wasting time? all you have to do his click the reply button......it takes just as much time to scroll down to post something ....half a second? ...
    ..it causes confusion

    I have been lurking here for over a decade and have seen many kinds of posts and posters. I have seen threads where you post on one day, come back the next, and find literal pages of content which often moves the topic in multiple directions.

    Sometimes a person is in their mind replying to multiple posts, or feel, as I did early on that they are too 'new' to the subject to be overly critical, or simply concerned that pointing out others posts will be seen as a direct assault on another poster, which is sometimes true.

    In a perfect world we would be the same in how we post, but we are at our best as a international forum and customs, training, cultural ways differ between regions, nations and continents.

    The most massive old thread is to read the Kursk thread
