Off Focus Off Topic Reading Skills
Eric sent me a link explaining how people read words on the internet, or correctly how they do not read, it appears the average person reads somewhere from 10 to 30 percent of words according to the type of pages.

My problem is this, I write a blog post, people do not read it, however, I know they believe they read it, then this person jumps, and wishes to comment.


First - Off topic, not related to the complete post, just pull out one line and comment.

Second - Off Focus -Comment in confusion, irrelevant, however they are on-topic partially, but not on the essentials of the blog post.

Third - Trolls and Flamer who just need heard, never got a hug, have penis envy problems.

Blog of Andy ---

All this has intriguing insights into the real nature of people, and how they read, understand, and then sadly make decisions. On the other hand it is terribly annoying to have people just doing anything they wish to do, and destroys any cogent, consistency of the blog or their lives.

The gossip, social media sites encourage people to talk non-sense, this empowers individual to make inane comments. This blog is where I propose ideas, and want constructive comments that help enlighten the other readers.

I am continually trying to learn ways to moderate kindly. I do believe it is almost a waste of time when I know the majority of reader’s minds arrived off-topic and off-focus, and never read the instructions.

When I am talking with with the real-time people, I like to say,
- I want to bid on a verb. -
- I want to bid on a subject. -

In a funny way, I am requesting a subject to their sentence, then a verb; however, they ramble non-sense and truly believe it makes sense. Writing lacks the hand gesture and emphasis of primal body language, therefore inherently missing about 90 percent of the communications possible.

I find reader are funny, they never do anything right, I think their girlfriends must feel or boyfriend must feel a pure lack of a completed life…as they just never read every word and thought, engaged brain.

I love that movie about Harvard called, the Paper Chase, the professor really keeps the students on topic and on-focus, a rare experience. I accepted years ago it was disrespectful to talk on the phone and read or surf the internet at the same time, really just ineffective.
