I notice a lot of questions start with a very long-winded story, before getting to the actual question. I recognize that for the type of questions asked here, some context is necessary to provide good answers.
However, 5 or more paragraphs describing the author's education, all of their past jobs, the projects worked on during those jobs, how far their workplace is, how they commute to work, details of their colleagues' personalities, company policies that they don't agree with, the size of their office, and so on and on1, before coming to a single sentence question is unnecessary and avoidable.
I honestly lose interest in the question if I cannot figure out a tangible issue within the first 3 paragraphs or so, which is especially worse if it starts with a poor title, such as "What should I do in this case?"
Does anyone else see this as a problem? Other than having an established user edit out the irrelevant details from the question each time, is there anything else we can do about it?
1 I am exaggerating a little here ... only a little.
