    How are the hp forums any better than the questions that are being retired into the forums?

    Increasing the number of characters for the questions in the forums, just makes it longer winded. It doesn't change the quality of the answers.

    Neither the question section or the Forum section have done much to inspire the writing of articles. In fact, giving longer responses to issues in the forum negates the need to write an article.

    Neither the hp forum or Soapboxie is any improvement to the original writing of an article. The format and presentation of articles on soapboxie is awkward and confusing.

    Because as the Questioner -- you can delete other people's answers and comments that's why Brad. Something you do on a regular basis with me in the past.

      I try to keep you on your best game. I delete why you run off the road. to be fair, I never delete when it is on the subject, and it is not a rant. It still dsn't give a reason why forums are better.

      When it goes to Forum I won't go on

    You get a lot more participation in the forums. It seems you get a higher level of intelligent responses in the forums too. In the Q&A there are some rather nonsensical personages who frequent this. And on this very thread, I spot one.

    Oh you could glean lots of useful bits from a forum thread with which to write a nice article with. I don't do that because I've not been into writing political or social things in some years.

    You get more moderation, I think, in the forums. In any event, Q&A and forums are just basic socializing. That's all it could be. Not much different from Facebook.

      thanks for the feedback.
      When i was using the forums, I found snipers that did nothing but wait for fresh meat to assault. In addition, the threads gets so long it is difficult to get any chronology.

      BTW, I don't do facebook,
