I get so frustrated trying to leave a comment on an article that has 25 or more comments. Having to deal with the dial up network of AT&T which seems to be worse than SBC and Pacbell combined. I was about to pen a title for an article:
Gather=Dialup= frustrated user, but I went to my gather and noticed I finally hit that 3,000 mark. I started here on August 6th and here it is Sep 2nd and I got them.
I am not interested in the cash option, since I would use my paypal for ebay purchases or the card at the grocery store and I want the Gift cards to get holiday stuff for my kids.
I wanted to see if I personally could reach 3,000 points in the thirty day alloted period, even though technically it was not a calendar month it is still within thirty days.
For days I kept losing my connection after 15 minutes and thought I would lose my mind. It is possible folks to be on a stinking dial up connection and reboot countless times a day and still get the 3,000 points - if that is what you want to achieve.
I want members to know that I do read your stuff, but I cannot sit and wait with priceless dial up seconds ticking away to leave a comment. I am more than happy to send a comment via private message if you would like to know that someone else was reading and wanted to comment, but could not.
Is this something members would like, or is an anonymous rating just as good. If I understand correctly you get some sort of point for a connected person reading and then more points for a rating, so my visit is giving you something, but then I feel left out of the converstation and discussions since I cannot add a comment and most times cannot come back to visit and see what has been discussed since my visit.
These are the frustrations I deal with on this site, but hey I got 3,009 points on dial up.
