Do you prefer paragraphs or bullets?

submitted on February 26, 2010 by equipurple in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Just wondering what Buxrites think about posting and reading deal descriptions (assuming that anyone actually reads them). Do you prefer to post or read a paragraph of text or a list of bullet points?

Amazon and Buy.com generally have both on the item page. Many other sites have description and features or specs tabs.

As an example (thanks orangearrows) on http://www.buxr.com/deal/creat.....00-8_45278

buy.com offers:

    I personally find paragraphs easier to read in a confined space like the deal description box, and try to post paragraphs when possible.

    Would prefer Bullets since quicker to glance through. Try to post deal info in bullets when I feel it delivers the deal contents the most efficient way. If not then just cut-n-paste the para

    I typically do a mixture of both. Paragraphs when it fits well, and bullets when I only have room for key points.

    I like to shoot people with bullets. It hurts more than just words.
