I just wanted to see if having the phrase, "please read," actually works. I've seen several posts with that phrase or a variant of it. It kinda bothers me. If people want to read what you've written, they will. I like to think most of us are smart/clever enough to come up with an attention-grabbing title. And even if you're not, just simply say what your topic is. No need to beg us nicely to read it.

Unless of course it really works. Then I'll shut up about it. :)

That's funny! :D
got me 2 - ha - you work in advertising ??
Nah. I'm just a lowly musician. :)
Don't feel bad. It seems to be a trend! :)

It worked on me. I am here I read it.. I am going to start ignoring it though.. lol

Dang, I fell for it too but only after by-passing it a few times; about the 3rd or 4th time, I caved lol.
Maybe there really is something to this! You could resist, but only for so long. :)
lmao...NIICE. I agree. and yes, it did work, for me anyway. Idk..maybe I thought it was some sort of atheist emergency. lmao
Ha! I would have put, "Atheist emergency!" At least that gives you an idea of what I'm going to talk about.

Wow, I just wasted 3 minutes of my life - good one.  

 

(Catchy title by the way.) 

That's how I feel after reading most, "please read!" posts. I really should not read them, but everytime I do, I secretly hope the person has something decent to say. They normally don't...

You see now, I am generally curious about the type of personality who would feel the need to put that in the title of their post, hence me checking it out, but it annoys me a little bit.

I actually only clicked on this topic now so I could post something along the lines of, "Put content in your title. This is a useless, spammy title."
