    I'm with Lily. It just comes naturally to blurt out a whole lot of text. A lot of answers don't give many details and repeat the same idea. I don't think expanding on the subject if you think that would be more helpful to the asker means you're a smarty-pants. I do find it difficult to be concise and I'm sure that being longwinded is undesirable to some extent. But I myself enjoy detailed answers. To me it's more associated with effort than intelligence. And I don't cut and paste either. I like writing.

    I like to write detailed answers personally - and I definitely don't cut and paste.

    But I'm also a writer, who's rather obsessed with details, and can tend to write a bit much. :P So I guess that has something to do with it.

    They are probably just trying to be clear and concise. Some of us act like we don't understand plain English, so others may try and break it down so there will be no chance of misunderstanding.

    I see nothing wrong with long paragraphs as long as they are helpful and stick to the subject.

    Heh, depends on the question... sometimes a couple words suffice, and sometimes you need to get into detail.

    Source(s): I only have one topic I cut and paste on... and it is because the same exact question gets asked at least 5 times a week on Yahoo Answers.

    Those same people would talk your ear off if you met them. I know what you mean, they should make it short and to the point.
