A question mainly for regulars: why do you ask so few questions and answer so many trolling ones?
First of all, it seems to me that most of the non-trolling regulars here don't ever bother to ask questions. Obviously there are exceptions (Girly McFemale, allegra, Flyinghorse, waswisgirl are four that I can think of), but most (or many others) seem occupied with answering questions (many of them trolling ones) rather than asking them.
Obviously trolling wont decrease as a result but surely the overall standard of the board will increase if there are more reasonable questions on display.
Second, I imagine that trolls get a kick out of how regulars respond to them. So why not collectively agree to boycott them? Don't you think some of them might get bored if they're given the cold shoulder?
Again, it's not realistic to expect standards here to be high, so I'm not talking about intellectual stimulation. I think you can ask decent questions without asking people to turn off autopilot.
That said, I overlooked Flyinghorse's point: asking questions makes you more of a target. This is probably not the main reason why people don't but it's certainly a valid one.
*In order for me not to understand the joke, I would have to assume that you genuinely believe you know everything. I am DEEPLY offended by your assumption that I am such a dunce. ; ) (There is my mastery of the smiley-system again)
Girly, you feminists should have another "conciousness-raising" session and start calling trolls that. Much better term.
I've said plenty on the blocking-to-stifle-debate issue previously.
