...sometimes I do post a link without much verbage. However, I describe it
well in the subject. I have before typed some text and included the link
but, I found that sometimes people would post a comment WITHOUT even
reading the article. I found this most insulting. Not only did they comment
without reading it but, I wasted time talking about the article with
someone who did not even read it. So now, I include a nice description in
the subject...
