Why do so many people not bother to reply to a forum in sequence?
Are they attention seekers
? Are they just queue jumpers?
Are they as ill mannered off line as they are on?
Yes, sometimesreplying in this method may be relevant, but most times it is not.

Hubber 4 6:15
Hubber 2 6:01pm
Hubber 3 6:02pm
Hubber 5 6:22
Hubber 6 6:07
