I am talking about a thread that I want to participate in but is inaccesible to me.
The game threads don’t count, because I don’t play video games. The pet thread doesn’t count, because I don’t have any pets and never have had any. I will occasionally check in on those threads, but rarely, and I never comment there.
Wanderthread is a current events thread. I’m interested in current events, and would like to discuss them. I would like to hear new perspectives as well. However, the way this thread is set up, I am strongly discouraged from even reading it.
So, does the thread length discourage me from reading it? Not in and of itself. It’s more the format than the length TBH. But the length is a function of the format, and sure as shit doesn’t encourage me to read it.
Does the length discourage conversation? I can only speak for myself, but something is clearly discouraging conversation, because there’s none to speak of!
I resent this implication.
This is about a thread being interesting to me but inaccesible, which was the topic of this thread, after all.
