I can easily take several hours on some posts or comments.  Yes, I should be 
writing those in another program and copying them in.  No, I don't usually do 
that. :-)  I don't think I'm alone in doing so.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
