But...how can I make it any clearer?

Today's rant is about:
People who do not read.

I'm not typing about people who are illiterate for whatever reason or people who just don't like to read books. I'm typing about people who will not read directions, descriptions, profile info; and those who *claim* to read them, but in fact refuse to understand it.

What I am currently annoyed with today is I updated a profile of mine on a social networking website (not facebook) in which I spent almost 30 minutes typing out, in great detail, why I was on said site, what I was looking, why I was looking for it, as well as answering various questions that people who have contacted me through said site have asked me. I do admit it was a bit of a bitchy tone, which I also mentioned on said profile. Anyway, I was going through some of the messages and replyed to someone who had contacted me prior to this massive profile update. I do not retroactively punish people for not reading, so I mentioned to this person that I updated my profile and he should check it out to see if I am still what he wanted. He was not someone I was keen to get to know, but I give people the benefit of the doubt on the internet, due mostly to the 2d environment it creates, as well as the lack of actual emotion in writing things down.

This guy replies back again, with the same questions and the same lack of information he had prior to my profile update, so I curtly reply that I currently "was not looking for" what he was looking for. He replies again asking me to be "straight forward". Which, knowing me and my personality, I sat down and wrote 4 things which he had done with his online etiquette which bothered me. I don't normally go and point out people's faults because sometimes they just can't help it. This guy still has not replied back, so I do hope he has figured out I'm not what he wants.

Social network sites cull all kinds of people. It's hard, sometimes, to weed out the good from the bad. I am attempting to solve this, at least on mentioned site in above diabribe, using intellegence, knowledge, and detail.
