Do you ever wonder why?


People bother to post questions on this forum about problems they are having "Right Now!", but don't bother to come back for a week or more to see if anyone has bothered to answer with helpful suggestions? Interesting. David

Not everyone is a forum warrior like us! I imagine a link here was found via search engine, then they forgot the address... or they come back without signing in, then if they got any flack at all get scared away from updating a post.

When I ask a question on a forum, I also reply if there is someone else answer my question (sometimes with a thank-you answer only).

I lose track of some of my questions, especially when one takes on the appearance of a dead thread.

I blame it all on what I call the "Walmart Mentality". Every one wants everything right now, at the lowest possible price, with the least amount of effort involved, and if it can be done with a drive-thru, that's even better.

This is generally the same group of people that have no idea what "you get what you pay for" really menas.

I think many would rather be ill-advised, than not advised in a short amount of time.

I should mention that I don't think that this is the majority HERE at all, most people that participate here seem genuinly grateful.
