I noticed that most of the 2 and 3 year old questions have short answers posted. Most of them 8 days ago. Makes me wonder if this is something that is done in slow times or coincidence.
sort by best latest
Probably because you singled out Soy. That could have created very vehement responses from green, Lima and Kidney.
LOL - yes I can see how that could quickly become a controversial topic that would lead to flame wars and shenanigans, thanks for setting me straight ;)
Let this be a lesson. NO bean wants to be profiled. Foreign or domestic. Just havin' fun. thx
I asked 'What one thing do you dislike about summer' and it was taken down as well?????
Seeker7. I guess they really like summer!
I think they need to delete the majority of them anyway. Most of them are inane, senseless, and do nothing good for the site. I've even deleted a few of my own, just because they were low traffic and useless.
Insane Mundane I couldn't agree more. I was looking at some of the questions the other day and many were ridiculous others just mind boggling!
That short answer to revive is suspect when most were answered on the same day. Many 3 yr old questions had new answers the same day when most recent answer was 2 yrs before the new one.
I think many people are finding this. Either their questions are removed due to them 'promoting a discussion' or no one bothers to answer. The questions used to be enjoyable, now its just a confusing bore!
If they keep deleting everyone's questions, I reckon there will be less inclination to post them.
I agree sallybea, a couple of mine were removed saying they promoted a discussion, when I only asked for a brief response. If the questions are causing so much hassle why don't they just remove them and keep everything on the forum.
If a moderator thinks it promotes discussion, why not express and suggest a forum in the form of a comment rather than to just take down the question? It's our site. As long as content rules are followed, why should they care?
Wow Jeff I thought of the same question but was not even interested enough to ask the question. Good thing-I did not realize it would have led to ban!
For heaven's sake that is ridiculous having your question removed! How on earth can you ask a question and not promote at least some discussion. Or do they want 'yes' or 'no' respones. If so, what's the point? Best not to ask any questions at all.
Don't feel bad - I got a 24 hour ban for having the gall to ask if soy is good or bad for you? ;) lol
Maybe. But why not drop the old for the new? Some of those old ones show 150 answers over 3 years. I wouldn't spend time on an answer that gets lost in that crowd. No one is going to go thru a 100 answers to find the new one.
