    (first I want to apologize for always starting my topics like that. I just can't ever think of an appropriate title)

    Did you ever notice how when someone has a question the first person will answer it effectively, then the second person will come on and reiterate what the first person just said... then the op will thank them, and the third poster will come on and add a link or a little piece of info that might have been missed and the op will thank them? This goes on for a while and you think the threads gonna wrap up pretty soon, only no one counted on the fact that there is a second page, where no one wants to read every thing already posted so they answer the question for the op as if it is the first time the question has even been addressed and the whole thing goes on for another page which continues ad nauseum for like 20 more pages till the threads like a year old, the op has lost interest in writing altogether and has taken up bedazzling denim and is never heard from again?

    lol     I've noticed that (and a whole lot of other things on here).    smile

    One of my favorites is when the thread is - like - three years old and is a question like, "I'm living in a horrible situation and need to escape immediately because my life is in danger" -   and then three years later someone resurrects the thread and everyone starts telling the person how he ought to get out of wherever he is immediately.  It makes one think a) I imagine this person figured out what to do some time ago now, or b) Gee, this person could be dead by now."    big_smile   (I'm exaggerating (sort of) to make my point. )  (Or the ones about something like, "Can you help me name my baby, who is due two months from now." - and then someone resurrects the thread years later.)

    I've always pretty assumed this kind of stuff is likely to be a matter of, "Hey - there's a question I think I can answer.  Think I'll answer it."  Of course, it could also be a case of, "Hey - I can answer that question.  I see that seventy-eight other people have already answered it, but one can never have too many slightly different versions of the same answer."    smile

        Why am I thinking there might be a "January 2014".....

        "Seize the day.  Go sky-diving."     big_smile

        (Has anyone yet gone to that thread to add a "May 2013" post like, "OP, are you still out there and have you gone sky-diving yet?"    smile  )
