    I know some of you are diehard bickerers, but I get fed up with most threads by page 4 or 5. Usually by then it's been derailed from the original point or become so muddled that no one can follow what's going on anyway. I usually unsub rather than get notifications about a thread I don't care about anymore, so...

    How many pages do you read before you before exasperated and bail out?

    It depends on the thread. Some of them are nothing more than copies of other threads, the same people having the same arguments over and over and over again. Those I don't even bother to start reading. I'm OK with tangents, the only thing that will really make my lose interest is if one or more posters start resorting to dishonest debate tactics.

    Depends on the subject, and/or whether or not I've got a point to make that hasn't been made yet. But when there's someone in a thread that it becomes very clear that they just are NOT going to see things as you see them, no matter how much fact or reason you use, I bail too. Not worth your time.

    Same. And I do not have a microscopic patience or train of thought OR attention span.
