    Why is it that SO many forums are negative and demeaning to the person asking questions?

    I know sometimes you see a really dumb question, but more often than not, it simply means somebody has left out some pertinent facts.

    There are a lot of unhappy people out there. Forums is a good place for idle people to waste their time. If unhappy people can put other people down (while wasting time) then they will do so to make themselves feel better.

    Because some people do not understand that the question area is also a place to suggest topics for people to write hubs about; not just for asking questions.

    I have tried to tell someone that 3 times but she still continues to be very rude...

    You shouldn't hurt someones feelings because you can. On the other hand, don't be hyper sensitive either. If you post something be prepared for a variety of comments. Some will be serious, some will be clowning, Some will be probeing to check your motivation for asking. I enjoy writting fun comments and serious comments, this is a form of entertainment not life and death.Peace.

    Questions are like husbands, I guess. No one likes them but one can’t avoid them.

    For me the dislike for questions started when my kid asked me loudly in a jam packed theatre: "Why is the uncle sniffing the aunty? " Since I could not answer that satisfactorily, it was followed by a series of embarrassing questions & revelations.
    Now, why are questions designed to  embarrass ?

    the truth can hurt sometimes, just take it for what it is worth!  No one says you have to run with it.  That is what happens when you put your business out there....major feedbck of all kinds.
