Seriously, why do people reply with irrelevant information?

So, I have seen this quite a few times since I joined this site and, frankly, it is annoying. Someone makes a post. It is an interesting post. I scroll through the replies only to have to sift through a handful of people who reply saying basically, "This post has nothing to do with/was not addressed to me, but here is a little bit about my life." They don't even reply with a relevant opinion such as, "This post has nothing to do with me, but here is what I think people that it does pertain to should do." Most recent example of this that I saw was a post directed at SAHMs asking them if they would pick up the slack if their husband lost his job. So many people responded saying, "I already work out of the home." How is this relevant at all to the post? If you already work out of the home, you are not a SAHM. A reply saying, "I already work out of the home, but think SAHMs should __________ if their husband loses his job", would have been an appropriate response.

It annoys the living hell out me as well. Because it has zero do with them and since they already work out of the home they don't have to make choice that will drastically change the family home.i feel that way about any post when they do that. But I swear there were 50 replies that were relevant to the post.
