He's got you there. To be fair, saying he doesn't enjoy reading overly long posts isn't the same as saying he doesn't want to participate in written discussion.
I know, I just left like bringing up a point of Irony. I'm sure Seth assumes and wants others to read his blogs so for him to then go and say that we shouldn't make walls of text cause he doesn't like it just didn't sit well with me.

Although in my case, this mainly refers to older threads with several pages worth of text. In general, I'm much more of a reader and writer than a listener and talker, so I usually appreciate people being elaborate with their replies.
I'm the same way, I'm actually a lot more fond of long posts within forums, I think the fact that they are posts is meant to imply that they should be longer, If you want short snappy discussion with short messages you can also find a chat room or Discord to serve that purpose.
I'm with you in that I enjoy how in formes we can make long posts and take the time to really explain ourselves and out points, we can have long and elaborate discussions. I just really like that aspect of it.
