It's big and moves fast, so their post is easy to lost quickly. And so many folks don't bother to read the whole thread from the OP first post through to the last post.

Many times I have come across the exact question by the same person posted on several forums. It's as if they join, and post their question to, any forum even remotely related to their subject. I imagine they probably forget how many, or which, forums they signed up to in the quest for a solution.

I once asked a question about buying a small portable welder and learning to use it because I wanted to do some small projects around the house. Several pages later I was getting advice on how to become an underwater welder on off shore oil platforms in the Gulf. I just wanted to build a gate.

Agreed, many double posts...

So, are you now doing welding on off shore rigs or are you making movies?

Thank yous, and especially problem resolutions are nice and appreciated. I do have to agree it's probably lack of ability in navigating the forum, rather than rudeness. I draw that conclusion based on the number of posts in Forum Technical Support, and the endless supply of repetitive questions.

The least likely reason would be rude responses or subject drift. That would have to be a mighty thin-skinned person. Off-color responses will always be a part of this board and human nature. Ain't gonna stop that...but the mods do try.

It is called "feedback". Many people never learn the art of feedback. I too would appreciate getting feedback. It is another step in the learning process; knowing what works and what does not work. No matter what, I still enjoy reading most of the posts and can honestly say that even I (just joking) have learned a few things by being a member on this forum. It is not perfect, but find it helpful and enjoyable. JMHO

Some OPs are just put off by the amount of off-topic comments a simple question can generate. don't mean they should be, but they probably are.

Personally, it doesn't bother me that people don't thank everyone for their suggestions. But I DO get curious as to the resolution of the problem. That could be helpful to all of us.
