when you open a can of worms, you normally expect to use them for bait. I think you did just that and got a bigger response than what you wanted.

you also assumed that the 3.89% were unhappy people....maybe, maybe not, but for a site staffed wholly by volunteer hobbiests, I think that over 96% approval rating is pretty darn good.

In addition, some of the posts where no one answered could be timing, As FF said all the advisors have job's as well as their FREE work on this site. As for me if I see a post that I CAN'T help on, I don't post, if I see a post that I can't understand because the poster has bounced all over and not made a clear point as to their question I also pass over it. I am by no means an expert on fish but I have learned alot from this site and hopefully will be able to help someone in the future as I have been helped here.

On the other topic (hijacking your own thread ), I love to fish, don't have time but love to fish just the same. Love to eat them even more. I think I could eat my weight in flounder

Agreed. you do realize that as of me typing this, AA has 8375 registered members. if even 1% of those people were posting in every thread saying "i don't know" it would get a little annoying. That would be 83 posts!!

Do you see how that could be a problem?

edit: oops, just realized this was 4 pages long! first time ive ever made that mistake. . ignore me!

oh a 96% answer rate in 3 years, but who care if 3 something % get kick away.
like i said if people would read the whole post just trying to point out a small problem and all are going nuts.

If you look closly at the list of unanswered posts a fair number of them are posts in the classifieds or barter/trade forum. No replys means no one wants to buy or trade for what ever they are offering. In addition we have a duplicate posts forum that duplicate posts are placed into before they are perged. Finally there are many posts in the site news forum that are simple announcments that have zero replys. So 100% of that 3.89% are not posts where people are asking for help. That % is even smaller.

No one has jumped you. I was simply explaining why I don't post sometimes, If I can't help, I can't help .
