When I look through the review queues there are often many which I skip for various reasons. These include:
- not having a clue whether the answer is good or not, the matter being beyond my ken,
- a general world-weariness at the issues raised,
- having no strong opinion one way or the other,
- thinking it certainly problematic, but being paralysed with indecision over which crime has been committed (most often overawed by the magnitude of the inanity),
- not being sure whether the merits of the case weigh one way or another, but being able to articulate cases in both directions.
Of course, this rather over-emphasises my equivocation: at other times I'm like Dredd on Speed.
My question concerns my general dissatisfaction with all these kinds of abstention being "Skip"s. Are there negative implications for me or for the site skipping in these various circumstances? Is skipping as if I'd never seen it (which I have been assuming) or does it have other implications for the question, site, or me? Is skipping actually the right thing to do in these various circumstances?
Is profligate skipping dissolute?
