Queue Jumpers?

    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.

    Example "what time is it where you are?"
    I post 6pm, Saturday. Rather than reply under that answer, many will reply directly to the response above, thus the forum looks like this.

    Hubber1 5.55pm

              Hubber 4 6:15
    Hubber 2 6:01pm

    Hubber 3 6:02pm

              Hubber 5 6:22

    Hubber 6 6:07

    See what I mean? Please try
               and post direct responses where
    it would
                               make the forum flow

      What time is it thread is always a response to the OP i would have thought ?  and if someone does not want to talk to you specifically then it is normal to respond to aprevious post.  The same applies in the discussion threads, there are often several different conversations going on at the same time, isn't this what the chronological and threaded view choices are for ?
