There are many varied and numerous reasons. (short attention spans, people "skimming"- not thoroughly reading the post- not clicking on provided links)
Just try and count the number of good posts that immediately get "derailed" by the first reply-
They summarily get veered off onto a completely different tangent! and more often than not - even if the thread gets "Back on Track" -the credit for the OP gets lost in the "mix"!
What are we supposed to do about it?
Go off in a huff, Sulk, or start a rant?
We just have to be mature about it, and continue.
It's kind of like Karma- what goes around comes around!
when you are contributing good input, or, when you're just posting "fluff"!
- everybody else knows it too- so, just "take this one on the chin" and keep up with your excellent posts!
I am merely one among many, but, I will personally continue to look forward to your input!
