Is it just me or does it seem like there are more vent posts here lately?

I don't know how to respond to most of these posts anymore. Most are from newbies that we have no background on. Should we start asking for a vent category?

  • How hard is it to understand that the purpose of "Answers" is to ask a question for which you are seeking an "Answer"?

    It's like they are answering and we are supposed to guess the question.....

    Shut the gates....

  • I'm just a jerk now, and I offer no apologies.

  • Yeah, I'm an asshole to most of them. They're probably trolls anyway.

  • Yeah, noticed that as well. They give little to no info and I have no clue what they are looking for.

  • Must be the stress of the holidays. I know I'm feeling it. I just won't burden y'all with it. We all have our problems. There is a "vent" group-so maybe we just direct them there.

  • Cannot afford therapy? Then again, some may need therapy after coming to answers! Especially the ones who ask the 'pregnancy questions'. .. lol

  • Don't get me wrong. I honestly don't care if the vents are here. It's just strange when a newbie does it and we have no background info on them and that leaves me not really knowing how to respond, so I don't. The more vents like that happening here will just make participation lower / less frequent. Even 'have you ever felt like this' as a question gives me something more to try to identify with. KWIM?
