People are lacking in common decency and manners. I don't care how many answers I get...if I ask a question, I will comment back to each one. If you take the time to answer my question, the very least I can do is to thank you for answering. Besides...the more answers ... the more perspective.
Well, it does get aggravating when you have more than one answer per question. Sure I like having lots of answers on my questions but at the same time I don't like it. For me, one is enough. That's all I can come up with. I think a lot of us don't realize how rude it is.
It's easier to ignore a textual response than it is to ignore the guy holding a door open for you. And people seem to ignore the guy holding the door open enough as it is. You can't expect much from the general public. Truth is, by pointing it out and doing it yourself, it will help for a while, but don't expect too much of a change. But good job for recognizing it though, it does help. I know I'll try to reply to everyone more often. You've helped at least one person.
My answer may be a little different. I agree it's nice to be acknowledged , but one thing I've noticed i my short time here. One person may give an excellent answer and get nothing. A person that has been here a long time gives an answer , almost word for word as the first person and gets the "thumbs up" from everyone. Just wondering why. It's nice to get acknowledged but hopefully we are here to help and not looking for that "thumbs up". Just a thought.
Dear Zorg, Something I have noticed about Ask; in our age of overcrowding but dearth of meaningful human connection, for many people Ask can actually be a way of learning manners, of practice connecting with others in a gracious manner.
So, perhaps you effort spent answering may help someone in ways you do not even realize...
