i have noticed

That a lot of time when a woman posts a question in the need of answers that she only gets a few responses and if she post something silly everyone answers. Why is that?

  • My guess is that everyone can relate to something funny, but not everyone has dealt with whatever the serious question is asking. Or most of the time if I see an answer I would give to a more serious question, I just bump up the good answer and move on. No sense in rewriting the exact same thing.

  • Me too! It upsets me. I always go to the unanswered questions and try to answer as many questions that I know the answers to.

  • fun questions seem to work for most everyone-
    specific questions/problems have less people that can relate or know what kind of advice to give so they will get less answers

  • Silly questions are easy to answer; serious ones can be harder especially if the post is about something real specific.

  • Some people claim it has to do with the popularity of the poster, but I'm not so sure about that one.

  • A lot of questions only have one answer:
    My child has a fever and a rash, what do I do? Call a doctor
    Am I pregnant? Maybe
    Can they sue me/garnish my check/take me to court? Yes
    Are those WAH things scams? Usually

    Some people don't even bother to answer them anymore because they've been asked a million times already, and some figure once they have the right answer, they don't need it 50 more times. There is no reason to continue replying to those questions unless you're just looking for points.
