Blogusiasm or blogorrhoea? Or should I say, long or short?
Wolfman has said I'm blogusiastic. I say he has blogorrhoea. His posts are so long I get lost half way through. I wonder, what do people prefer. Long or short?

Personally, I don't mind long posts if they're interesting. But short is better, obviously, considering the average netizen's attention span (or lack thereof). Then again, short is also a perfect excuse for not having to come up with some original content.
Trouble is, if you want to be concise AND get your point across, you really have to understand the finer nuances of the language you're using - which is difficult for non-native speakers like myself. That's why I usually end up taking the long way around. Sorry for that, but you'll just have to put up with it, I fear :-)

Short. I haven't got the time or the attention span to read longer articles at my PC.
