Hmm!.. I'd have to ponder on that for a long time. Time that could have been spent answering an unanswered post.

think of it this way perhaps - one of our dear and welcomed members makes a post " this is like saying Hi everyone good to see you all again what do you think about this?" and guess what we all just stand there and look elsewhere and no one makes a comment - pretty rude I would say particularly to one of our members who we have originally welcomed into the club??

Mind you I could have got this wrong - what do uz all fink?? blowkiss

I fink that there is no rule that we have to comment on every post that members make. It would be possible to spend several hours a day on here if we did that,and most of us have lives away from our computers. There is no point in making comments on threads that are of no interest to us. For example I never get involved these days with forum games,I no longer have the time,I have to do a lot more since !Er indoors had a bad back. No offence,but that is my opinion

I post the same pictures, jokes and general stuff on 4 forums each time.

On one forum which is very lively - a post will receive several replies and often sponsors a stream of off-topic humour from numerous members

On another forum the same post will be viewed by up to 40 members without a single reply. On the other two forums which includes this one I usually get a response from one or two members but quite a few viewings.

I am happy to see the posts viewed and appreciate a response - but I am not dissuaded from continuing to post because I know that people are looking at them even when they don't respond. They are not being rude but are enjoying the moment on their own.

Hence I understand what you are saying Davo - but can also empathise with andsomes argument.

Hence I am absolutely certain and quite sure that I am ambivalent regarding which is best.


To post or not to post. That is the question

Whether t’is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of the lack of responses

Or to take umbrage against a sea of being ignored, and by opposing, end them

To withdraw, to post no more, and by such sleep to say we end the heartache

and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. T’is a consummation devoutly to be wished.

To withdraw, to sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub.

I do have a habit  of looking but not responding. Sometimes I am not sure what comment to make or witty response. I do tend to read most posts though  smile

I also read most posts too.  

It should be considered that we have private lives and some of us have personal health issues and commitments, which limit our time available.  Members do not necessarily publish details with regard to their personal lives and should not be criticised for it.

A short while ago, there was an influx of new members.  Would it not be worth considering why they are no longer partaking of the opportunity of their membership?

yes it would and I would guess [ as I know some of them personally] that they consider that the "response rate" in generally is very low and they too have other things to do that get better returns! garden
