Post too long

Double Nickle

Living from direct deposit to direct deposit.
Lately when I attemp to post things on TB. I get a message to make the post less than 2500 characters. Sometimes the post that I am replying to is 3 to 4 times longer than mine. What am I doing wrong?

If the post get's too long it will loose a member's attention .
Members like to surf the boards and you will understand if
a hand is on a break he just spent 10 min reading a long post .
Many members like to bounce around the boards knowing
they can go back to it latter .

Thanks / SMOKESTACK

You're certainly right about that Smoke.
When you get my age you don't have time for long posts, you stick with short things like hat jokes, mirrors, and Who shot J R.

Ty Stack, I was beginning to wonder what.

If I miss that white line, be sure to write me sometime. Its a shame Toby was set on the bench but I think he brought it onto himself.
