Examples illustrating ineffective conversational writing on the Internet

We cover the importance of precise conversational writing on the Internet, suggesting practices like careful reading of other's messages, responding to specific requests, meeting commitments one makes, and quoting previous messages when necessary to retain context.

To illustrate these principles, I have posted two examples of ineffective conversational Internet writing. They are example 1 and example 2.

Can you find places in these examples where each of the above practices was ignored?
