Some marketing books say it out loud: we want to get to "yes" without reflection or thought. We don't want people to deliberate, we want them to buy irrationally via emotions, not reason. After all, if people really thought about 75% of the things they own, they would realize they didn't need them. So how do we find a balance? How do we produce things with meaning that simultaneously encourage the rational values we hold? Who knows?

Getting people to read a post before responding and increasing their post count fights against this inherent tension.
Yeah? Coke.

Then you've either a most peculiar definition of "productive;" or, it is your goal to "produce" as much tripe as possible.

In truth, it's never been a particularly literate or well informed world.

And, while technological changes have provided the means for improvement, in both regards, they have also provided the means for leveraging the ignorance of others to ones advantage.

That which was once within the purview of a select few is now within easy grasp of all. Every man can now lay claim to having drunk from the well of knowledge, with no fear for the consequences.

I don't like Pepsi or Coke . . .

And that's in an extremely roundabout way what I want to say. You will never get the majority of people to read a thread. In fact, I'd say as high as 80% won't read beyond the headline and perhaps the first line.

(There's your hint . . .)

Your mission, should you accept it, is to find and eliminate said 80%.

As usual, should you or any of your IM force be captured, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your activities.

Good luck, NC.

I am guessing they skipped the first line.

This thread is strictly about the size of one's dual monitors.

You're surprised?

And dismayed. Don't bang it so hard your brains start to leak. When you get older they leak out yours ears while you sleep at night.

Evades the question: Coke or Pepsi?
