I've noticed that it seems to be proper Internet Etiquette to "apologize" for long posts.

Why is that? Is our attention span that short these days, or what? Anybody know how that originated?

On other bulletin and message boards (not this one though.) if your posts or threads last too long or take up too muvh space, the moderator of the board will tell you to keep it short or move on. That's usually because storage space is limited on their page or domain host. I've noticed it doesn't happen here. But then it takes time and space to tell a good story or give directions to fix a tractor or explain the fundamentals of animal husbandry. Country folk are used to actually holding conversations. Computer folk and chatters use a mishmash alphabet soup of abreviations to say less. And that's about it. (I think, hey I could be wrong. It doesn't happen often, but it does.)
