Read Every Word?

How do people read posts?  They slide, skip, and skim.  Eye-Tracker explains what you need to know from the studies, so your readers keep reading you – that’s the reason you write, right?

Read it to understand how to fight against narrow- and small-minded views like those who want to take it away from students because it “makes some people uncomfortable.”  Are you serious??  That’s exactly Lee’s point!!!!  What’s your Twitter view on this?
