I think I need to appreciate the thought (if it is not something different from what I perceive) behind this thread though I am not very sure about the suggestion. So, what do you suggest Mr SuN? We have only two options left- either the members must be diligent enough to read through all the responses too with the same interest with which he reads a thread ( a point which has been repeated time and again) or the members should not waste time by posting responses and should post threads instead so that his content gets the same attention. Am I right?
Reading a thread or a response or for that matter, any content in ISC, is no doubt an individual choice. But it would be nice if he keeps in mind, while posting responses, that there are members and editors who read through all the responses and make assessments. We do come across many responses that are irrelevant and also those which does not connect with the earlier responses. We have seen members alerting the authors that they have posted a content that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. So, to say that the content of a response will not be visible to many like the content of a thread will not be correct because there are situations when even the contents of a thread are not read properly. Just as a presumption, would it be then prudent to suggest that the contents of a thread will not be visible to many as the title of the thread.
I am of the opinion that responses are as important as the threads and we must never ignore them. After all, the purpose of this platform is to discuss issues/ ideas and to do that judiciously, we need to connect and read before coming up with our own views/ arguments.
