    I don't have a lot of time to spend here. Although, I would like to. Usually, I'm only on at night for a short time.

    A lot of them are silly and I'm too old for silly.

    I don't have answers for a lot of them.  But, I like the light-hearted ones where you can use your creativity to answer instead of having to give a lot of facts.  :)

    I don't answer Q's that -

    * That are geared towards the "younger" crowd
    * Where I have no clue what they are talking about
    * That I consider to be distasteful
    * That have no valid question (eg. tildes)  
    * Is asked by an asker that has replied one of my previous answer rudely (was a jerk) 

    I actually answer a lot more than one may realize.  On many occasions I'll spend anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour answering a single question ... yet not post it. This post was edited by Shuhak at March 11, 2019 6:03 AM MDT

      Dang, Woman, there are only 24 hours in a day!  I get in as many as I possibly can already, so what more do you want from me?

    A lowercase "w" on "Woman," if it's not too much to ask. ;)

    I only answer when I have a good answer.  As you can tell, I don't think of that many good answers.  Plus, I don't want some Dipstick taking all the fun out of it by pouncing on insignificant typos and lazy spelling.  That's a real downer.

    Oops. Maybe I should have read your post before my last one.

    Is this a poll?
    Personally, I would eagerly answer more questions if I saw more that were worth the effort of a response. 

    To be honest, many of the questions here are rather on the juvenile side, or invite no thoughtful reply. I suppose that that is how some members prefer it, but I have no taste for that style of discourse. I look for better questions.

  • You know what? This reminds me of all the complaints about the political posts when I had my last account. If you don’t like the ‘silly’ questions, post some serious ones.

    Very true. 
    For me (in keeping with this question), it’s not that I do or don’t like ”silly” questions, I just have no cause to answer them. 

    I will post an occasional question here, but typically, answers to the types of questions I have aren’t found on sites like this.

    Not sure how many we are expected to answer.  Many of them seem to be directed to a more youthful understanding and I really have no idea of what they are asking.  While some people closer to my age group seem to be more just trying to while away their time as pleasantly as possible and don't get into anything more substantial.  Still others are very silly and mostly it is difficult for me to get myself in the right frame of mind for them.  Then there are those who seek to preach and bully and complain because they feel it their sworn duty to do so.  Which I try to avoid but do unfortunately sometimes get drawn in contrary to my better nature.  Disturbs me when people use their freedom only to hate and excoriate and I feel someone should try to make balance.  And then - I know there are a lot of things I don't know about so really not qualified to make answers on such subjects.  Which when I try only draws reminders from some people  that I am not qualified or think the right way or the right things.  And some questions are geared toward only certain kinds of answers - like the ones that come with "humor is appreciated", or expect me to be creative like they are some kind of brain teaser game. 

    I don't know - I think I do answer enough of them to hold up my end in being a responsible participant.  Whatever else others may think.  Whether I succeed or fail at it I can only be myself. This post was edited by officegirl at March 11, 2019 11:12 AM MDT

    I haven't been around much, but I think I might give it another shot.
